A zero-boilerplate 2D games framework
A zero-boilerplate games programming framework based on Pygame.
Pygame Zero consists of a runner pgzrun that will run a Pygame Zero script with a full game loop and a range of useful builtins.
Here’s some of the neat stuff you can do (each one of these would be a self-contained, runnable script):
Draw graphics (from the images/ directory):
def draw(): screen.clear() screen.blit(images.dog, (10, 50))
Play a sound (from the sounds/ directory) when you click the mouse:
def on_mouse_down(): sounds.eep.play()
Update and draw an “actor” object:
alien = Actor('alien') alien.pos = 10, 10 def draw(): screen.clear() alien.draw() def update(): alien.x += 1 if alien.left > WIDTH: alien.right = 0
- Install Pygame for Python 3
- Install Pygame Zero (python setup.py install)
- “python3 -m pgzero <pgzero program>” or (if installed correctly) pgzrun <program>
