Pew pew pew! You can make your own Space Invaders-esque shooting game with an Adafruit twist: Sparky Invaders!

Our own Blue Smoke Monster wants to destroy as many sensitive IC (integrated circuit) chips with his ESD (electrostatic discharge) bolts as possible. Learn how to use MakeCode Arcade to create the gameplay code, graphics, and sounds for this fun, simple game.

Then transfer the game to your Pybadge or Pygamer to play it on the go, hand-held style.
