A shooter game from Scratch



Following my first game using the Scratch platform, I built Hittoriko Hunter – a little shooter game based on sprites from the original Tamagotchi.

Scratch was a great launchpad for learning concepts like loops and conditional statements.

Actually, after a quick playthrough just now, I am a little surprised at how well I managed to put this together nearly six years ago.

The timing for the gun reloads, the info messages, and the variety of enemy movements were all things I recall struggling with. While it’s not the most sophisticated game, I think it does a good job of entertaining for five minutes.
