Prof Katz assigned us an hour of code last night. He gave us 3 options and naturally I tried the most advanced. I had to “remix Spacetrek” and embed it below. When I first opened the game I immediately thought of my childhood Atari favorite, Asteroids and tried to recreate it. I had a lot of trouble getting the laser beam to go in the right direction but am pretty happy with the results. Scroll down to try my remix or see the assignment and do your own hour of code!
Option 1 (Beginner)
