Basically I saw a video of Mary Rose Cook live coding Space Invaders in 30 minutes and wanted to get my fingers dirty.
I thought the programming was awesome and I wanted to get some practice by replicating it, so I did.
After that, I started improving on it. Mainly, I did levels of incrementing difficulty and menues.
