Game-KAmissilecommand

Simplistic Python lookalike of the 1980 hit arcade game Missile Command by Atari, Inc. This was originally developed as a coursework piece for my Year 2 university module "Tool Development for Computer Games", which was graded as a first/distinction (of 90%). This is essentially the same as the final submission, but it has been rewritten to a better standard of code and commenting after submission and has some substantial bugfixes. It is a full screen game and only has single level (at the moment).

Running

"kamc.py" is the main and latest game source, and is the one you should play or modify. "kamc_old.py" is also playable but it is based off an older version (for the actual coursework but not the final submission) that lacks polish - it is included for referencing my older code. "bres.py" is a Bresenham's line algorithm implementation and is a dependency.

Target platform

This was developed for Python 2.7.14 on Windows 10 Education 64-Bit with Pygame 1.9.1. The solution should work without a problem on Linux as long as the Python and Pygame versions are similar (or possibly with older releases from the last year as of 2018-07-22), although your mileage may vary.
