Cupcake Invaders game

May 27, 2011

I created this game to be the cupcake version of the classic arcade game Space Invaders, in which the player controls a laser cannon to shoot alien spaceships. In my version, the player controls a pastry bag character with left and right arrows (on the stage or the keyboard) and clicks the mouse to shoot frosting.

With the use of some physics, I was able to get the frosting to follow a trajectory based on the angle of the mouse click in relation to the position of the pastry bag. The player gains points by frosting the cupcake on the correct side (top).

Read about how I converted the game to an Android app or download the app file itself.
