Sprite Images

Alright, you have a game, but let’s be honest… It’s kind of ugly. The player and enemies are just white blocks on a black background. That was state-of-the-art when Pong was new, but it just doesn’t cut it anymore. Let’s replace all those boring white rectangles with some cooler images that will make the game feel like an actual game.

Earlier, you learned that images on disk can be loaded into a Surface with some help from the image module. For this tutorial, we made a little jet for the player and some missiles for the enemies. You’re welcome to use this art, draw your own, or download some free game art assets to use. You can click the link below to download the art used in this tutorial:
