I've updated the files for Mission Python in line with some small changes we made in the latest reprint. They make it easier to use the inventory (by adding a small delay after tabbing to an item), and fix the shadow image in the final frame of the walking animation. Download the new game files here.
Mission Python shows you how to build a space adventure game, and has been popular with some families looking for a coding project during lockdown. The book shows you how to build the Escape game, and also explains how the code works so you can customise it. For example, you can design your own space station layout or create your own treasure hunts on the space station. I previously explained how to add real Mars sound effects to the Escape game, too.
If you get stuck playing the game, you can download a map of the Mission Python space station here (spoiler warning!).
