Alien Invasion

Alien Invasion at Taylor University

Alien Invasion is a throwback to the old arcade days.

Alien Invasion is a game created by then-freshman Brandon Reppert and Trent Stegink during J-Term. Written in Python and using some advanced features of basic programming modules, the game features multiple difficulty levels and a basic collision engine to play some good old-fashioned space-shooting.

This game represents some of the programming fundamentals that are picked up even at an early stage of the Computer Science learning process at Taylor. After their first semester, students are able to build software like Alien Invasion that is both flexible and usable.
