Scratch - Target Game

This will be a target shooting game. You will have 1 main sprite and multiple (minimum 3) target sprites.

Your main sprite will be shooting some type of weapon. If the weapon hits a target sprite, your target sprite should either:

a) completely disappear (basic level)
b) partially disappear (advanced level, 3 hits to make sprite fully vanish)

Make your sprite is interesting and creative.

Extend your project by attempting to create actions like changing backgrounds, flashing screens,explosions if a sprite dies, etc.

Project requirements:

1. One main sprite, minimum 3 target sprites.
2. Opening and closing screens.
3. Music during main game sequence.
4. Sound effects for each time the weapon is fired and each time it hits a target sprite.

Here is an example of a simple version of this game
