Build Maze Game Using Pygame


In this hands-on course, you'll learn how to build an exciting maze game from scratch using the Python programming language and the powerful Pygame library. Through step-by-step guidance, you'll dive into various aspects of game development, including setting up the game environment, creating the maze and adding food items, implementing player movement and collision detection, handling game logic such as scoring and end conditions, saving and retrieving high scores, and displaying game statistics on the screen.



In this project, we will create a maze game using the Pygame library in Python. The game involves navigating a player through a maze to collect food items while avoiding walls. We will split the development process into multiple steps to make it easier to understand and follow along.
