My employers at Missouri Tech asked me if I'd speak at a seminar, talk about what
I do, and perhaps have an interactive, hands-on activity. So I designed this super-simple little game
and broke it up into steps that my audience of potential programmers could do.
The interactive portion of my presentation was soon scrapped by the organizers due to time
limitations, but the game in its iterative steps of development remains and is still used for its
original intended purpose.
And by the way, none of the graphics were actually created just for this game. The spaceships
all originated as playable vehicles in CTG and CTG 2.
