Ein Buch von David Crookes & Andrew Gillet
Code the Classics
In the first of two volumes, we remake five classic video games in the popular Python programming language. Ranging from Pong to Sensible Soccer, each recreated
classic title represents a different style of game. We interview the games’ original creators and learn from their example, as well as utilise the art and audio engineering
skills of two of the 1980s’ most prolific games developers for our recreated versions of the games. In recreating classic games, readers are able to learn the basic constructions of what made them such playable and iconic genres, giving them a solid grounding that they can build upon to create their own original games in Python. All games will be open source and the code can be copied from the page or downloaded.
