Python: Arcade Game Design

Course Description
Quarter, after quarter, after quarter. Even at fifty cents or a dollar a play, arcade games have a draw and design that keeps players wanting more—no matter the barrier. Dedicated players know what gets more points and how to increase their standing on a leaderboard. You’ll code games in Python inspired by classic standbys and see how that focus on simplicity in design and replayability has been replicated in countless mobile and modern games. While you learn to code, you’ll create something that players don’t want to walk away from.

Online Course Requirements:
-Mac, Windows PC, or Chromebook only
-Python coding environment is online
-WebCam
-Stable internet connection with access to Zoom Video Conferencing
