I've done close to 10 projects on coursera and will say that this one has been the most exciting. There were approximately 120 lines of codes which were all very well explained and structured. The instructor seems both passionate and articulate


-Fast paced - im fast. but had to pause

-Very well explained

-Get to create a classic game

-Learn how to structure a project


rhyme won't allow the wav file for music in the game which you can fix by replicating script on local desktop

Overall this project was great I encountered 2 issues. 1 was fixed with this line by adding an s to the end of sprite

>attacking_invader = random.choice(invaders_group.sprites())

The other was fixed by adding the 'and' operator for the K_SPACE bullet function.

>if key[pygame.K_SPACE] and current_time - self.last_shot > cooldown:

Very easy to follow, good intrusctions, but unfortionatly when you finish the code the game doesn't work. You always get an error when starting the game, tried reaching out on the forum with no success. If the game would have worked I would have given this course a 5 / 5
