by Filip Ekberg

Get an introduction to Python and Pygame.

What you'll learn

In this course we’ll look at how we can use Python to create a 2D game. To solve this we would use PyGame which makes it easy to both understand the very basics of game programming and python. By analyzing how we create a breakout game (ball that bounces onto bricks) from 0 to 100, we will get a good sense of how we can use Python and PyGame together. At the end of the course we will have a playable breakout game that we’ve written from start to stop using Python together with PyGame.
