Retrospective

The initial project setup and planning went smoothly, with an idea (Super Crate Box x Asteroids) being worked on within an hour.  However, I think that idea turned out to be kind of boring. Maybe if I got around to implementing random weapon effects, it could be fun.

I tunneled visioned on getting the random effects generator to work perfectly. I probably lost around 12 hours on that feature alone before having to scrap ~50% of the work going with a hacky solution. That hacky solution made it hard to implement all the random that I wanted to make, but it did allow me to quickly implement a small subset of effects.

I am pleased with how the music turned out for the most part, especially the menu music for some reason.

Overall, I think this was a fun experiment and having the knowledge of how to build a ChaosGenerator class (the hacky/not-so-hacky solution for random effects)  will be useful in my pet project.
