Top Down Shooter Bugs

This Year 1 project not only covers the basics of creating a top down shooter using the visual programming tools of Construct 2 
but it also teaches the use of digital painting skills and alpha texturing for sprites. 
It helps students to understand optimisation and the use of low-resolution image 
and sound files for mobile games and covers the creation of seamless background tiles.

Quite a good all round exercise and with the reward of some fun game-play.
Students are encouraged to push the boundaries of the tutorials to add their own 

individual take on the design and challenge of the game play.

Here's a Spider Top Down Shooter battle by Games Design student, 
Gareth Hart.
