About the Game

Commander is a 2D space-adventure game to teach object-oriented programming (OOP). You play as a distinguished space general whose goal is to protect the intergalactic highways leading to the planet KELT-1b, the home of Queen Andromeda. You command a fleet of loyal spaceships who fight for you out in deep space; you remain in battlefield command on KELT-1b for your safety. To protect the Queen, you must command your spaceships and defeat the enemies!

About Us

Commander was developed at Cornell University under the supervision of Prof. Erik Andersen. It was a pilot project to study the impact of syntax on learning OOP and language design.
