Signal Burst

Just a simple Breakout clone. Launch the signal with the spacebar, and use left and right or [a] and [d] to move the paddle left and right. A small but scrappy start, I rather liked how the lives system turned out (it's signal strength!)
Jam year: 
2018
Platforms: 
MS Windows
Technology Notes: 
Just a basic game created with pygame.
Installation Instructions: 

Unfortunately there's not exactly an .exe, so you'll need to have set up python and pygame to run it.  I followed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ki_5uS4bOgQ to set up my environment for what it's worth.

The code I started with came from Making Games with Python and Pygame (http://inventwithpython.com/pygame), and to get some of the collision correct I looked at https://codeincomplete.com/posts/javascript-pong/part4/ and https://codeincomplete.com/posts/collision-detection-in-breakout/

Thanks to everyone who gave me kind words of encouragement, especially M.
