You ever get the feeling that life is just one long series of Escort Missions?

My Plan for World (and Self) Deprecation

While I’m waiting of my wife and 4 year old to meet me for dinner, thought I’d jot down a quick list (it doesn’t count as starting until I open XCode, right)?

  1. Get a cocos2d hello world screen showing the big blue ball royalty-free NASA supplied image

  2. Get a quick sprite to be the bad guy on the screen.

  3. Cover the world in an opaque block when screen is touched and restore it when touches end

  4. Make the alien move.

  5. Make the alien able to collide with the block.

  6. Make the game over popup if the alien collides with the world while the block isn’t up.

  7. Make aliens and shields of different colors.

  8. Make a stream of aliens.

  9. See if it’s any fun at all.
