Games Programming using Pygame - Project 1 - Balloon Burst
Many students these days wish to be games programmers. This booklet is the first in a series of four that teaches students the tool and techniques of object orientated programming required to become a beginner games programmer.

In Project 1 students will use the programming language Python, along with its add-on Pygame, to write an object orientated game called Balloon Burst. The booklet covers:
. object orientated programming theory
. coding Balloon Burst (with full instructions)
. extension tasks
. ways to improve your coding

This could be your first step to becoming a games programmer!

This booklet was co-written with my colleague David Stott for the Scottish Advanced Higher Computer Science course but could be used as part of any advanced programming course or games programming club.

Project 2 is also available.
Save for later
