Crash Course 2: Invaders - Part 1

by Hectate (Updated on 2015-01-31)


Introduction

Welcome to Stencyl’s Crash Course 2. The first Crash Course helped you learn the basics, and this follow-up lesson will give you a quick intro to Stencyl's Design Mode (the block builder) and show you how to build a simple game.

The game you’ll build will be a simplified version of the classic game Space Invaders, where the player controls a spaceship and shoots enemies that are floating at the top of the screen.

Let’s get started...

 

Part 1: Creating a New Game

Step 1: Click on the box that says “Click here to create a new Game.”

Step 2: Select the Blank Game option from the list of available Kits and click Next.

You'll get a dialog that allows you to name your game and set the game screen's Width and Height. Name your game Invaders and leave the Width at 640 pixels and the Height at 480 pixels.

Game Setup window

Click "Create" and Stencyl will build your blank game and open it.

Next, we’ll start importing assets.

Click here to go to Part 2.
