Create a game over scene for pygame project

In this article we are going to create a game over scene for the pygame project, we will use back the start scene class which we have created previously to render our game over scene by slightly modify it for the multi-scenes uses. Here is the modify version of the start scene class, as you can see we have passed in a state variable to the start scene class’s draw method which will be used to determine which scene to be rendered on the screen.

from BgSprite import BgSprite
from GameSprite import GameSprite
from pygame.locals import *
from pygame import math as mt
import pygame

class StartScene(object):

    def __init__(self, scene):
        self.scene = scene
        self.button_image = 'Asset/button_play.png'
        self.bg_image = 'Asset/start.png'
        self.over_image = 'Asset/ove.png'
        self.bg_rect = Rect(0, 0, 660, 660)
        self.button_rect = Rect(0, 0,  306, 112)
        self.sprite = BgSprite(self.bg_image, self.bg_rect)
        self.sprite_over = BgSprite(self.over_image, self.bg_rect)
        self.sprite_button = GameSprite(self.button_image, self.button_rect)
        self.over_surface = self.sprite_over.getImage()  # get the game over sprite surface
        self.surface = self.sprite.getImage()  # get the start scene sprite surface
        self.button_surface = self.sprite_button.getImage() # get the button sprite surface
        self.draw_pos = mt.Vector2(0, 0)
        self.draw_button_pos = mt.Vector2(177, 274)

    def draw(self, state):
        if(state == 0):
            self.scene.blit(self.surface, self.draw_pos) # draw a start scene sprite
            self.scene.blit(self.over_surface, self.draw_pos)  # draw a game over sprite
        self.scene.blit(self.button_surface, self.draw_button_pos)  # draw a button sprite

Next we will need to modify the Game Manager class again by including an extra game over state variable and a new setup method into it.

from Player import Player
from Background import Background
from EnemyManager import EnemyManager
from Overlap import Overlap
from ExplosionManager import ExplosionManager
from Score import Score
from StartScene import StartScene
from pygame.locals import *
import pygame

class GameManager(object):

    def __init__(self, scene):

        self.scene = scene
        self.start_scene = StartScene(scene)
        self.overlap_manager = Overlap()


        #game state
        self.LOAD = 0
        self.GAME = 1
        self.OVER = 2

        self.state = self.LOAD

    def setup(self):

        self.player = Player(self.scene)
        self.background = Background(self.scene)
        self.enemy_manager = EnemyManager(self.scene, self.player)
        self.explosion_manager = ExplosionManager(self.scene)
        self.score_manager = Score(self.scene)

    def loop(self):

        if(self.state == self.LOAD or self.state == self.OVER):


        elif(self.state == self.GAME):


    def isAreaClick(self, pos):
        if (self.state == self.LOAD or self.state == self.OVER):
            self.rect = Rect(177, 274, 306, 112) # the position of the play button on the scene
            x, y = pos
            if(self.rect.collidepoint(x, y)):
                self.state = self.GAME

    def load_music(self):

    def play_music(self): #play the music infinite time

    def set_player_x(self, _x):
        if (self.state == self.GAME):

    def set_player_y(self, _y):
        if (self.state == self.GAME):

    def set_missile_strike(self, strike):
        if (self.state == self.GAME):

    def update(self):

    # check for player, enemy, missiles overlap
    def isOverlap(self):
        self.overlap_manager.isOverlap(self.player, self.enemy_manager, self.explosion_manager, self.score_manager, self)

    def draw(self):

We will pass in this class as the reference into the isOverlap method of the overlap manager which then will be used to access the state variable as well as reset the game objects to their original state by calling the newly created setup method of this class.

The last thing we need to do is to modify the overlap class.

from pygame.locals import *

class Overlap(object):

    def __init__(self):
        pass # nothing here

    # is player and enemy, player missile, enemy missile overlap
    def isOverlap(self, player, em, ex, score, gm):

        self.player_rect = Rect(player.pos.x, player.pos.y, player.width, player.height)

        for i in range(len(em.enemy_list)): # is player collides with enemy

            self.em_rect = Rect(em.enemy_list[i].x, em.enemy_list[i].y, em.width, em.height)
            if (self.player_rect.colliderect(self.em_rect)):
                em.enemy_list[i].on = False
                if(em.enemy_list[i].hit == False):
                    ex.create_explosion(player.pos.x + 2, player.pos.y + 2)
                    em.enemy_list[i].hit = True
                    gm.state = gm.OVER

        for i in range(len(em.enemy_missile_manager.missile_list)): # is enemy missile hits player

            self.em_rect = Rect(em.enemy_missile_manager.missile_list[i].x, em.enemy_missile_manager.missile_list[i].y, em.enemy_missile_manager.width, em.enemy_missile_manager.height)
            if (self.player_rect.colliderect(self.em_rect)):
                em.enemy_missile_manager.missile_list[i].on = False
                ex.create_explosion(player.pos.x + 2, player.pos.y + 2)
                if(score.score < 0):
                    gm.state = gm.OVER

        for i in range(len(em.enemy_list)): # is player missile hits enemy

            self.em_rect = Rect(em.enemy_list[i].x, em.enemy_list[i].y, em.width, em.height)

            for j in range(len(player.getMissileManager().missile_list)):

                self.mm_rect = Rect(player.getMissileManager().missile_list[j].x, player.getMissileManager().missile_list[j].y, player.getMissileManager().width, player.getMissileManager().height)

                if (self.em_rect.colliderect(self.mm_rect)):
                    em.enemy_list[i].on = False
                    player.getMissileManager().missile_list[j].on = False
                    if (em.enemy_list[i].hit == False):
                        ex.create_explosion(em.enemy_list[i].x, em.enemy_list[i].y + 2)
                        em.enemy_list[i].hit = True

The game over scene will be loaded and the game objects will be recreated whenever the player collides with the enemy ship or the player strength falls below zero.

With that done we are now ready to move on to the next stage of the project, which is to create a level manager class to manage all the game levels in this game.
