Aimed at "teens and young adults", this book is a space-themed guide to building a complete computer game in Python. Author Sean McManus explains programming fundamentals like loops, strings, and lists in the process of building a game with a map to explore, items to collect, and tricky logic puzzles to solve. The book also contains exercises and mini-projects, like making a spacewalk simulator and creating an astronaut's safety checklist to illustrate Python skills.
