Galactic Egg Snatchers

Galactic Egg Snatchers was made as part of a HobbyGameDev community warm-up project in April 2014, with the game released in May 2014. It is an Easter-themed Space Invaders game. Gameplay continues until the player reaches the maximum high score (unlikely), loses all Easter eggs, or loses all lives. Left and right arrow keys move the bunny, while space bar fires a missile.

I focused on programming using C++ and SFML. Other contributors (art, sound, etc.) may be found in the game’s credits.

The source code is available on GitHub. A post-mortem code review is available on my blog.

The game should be playable on Windows 7 systems.
