Day Four - 4FPSProbably less than 2 hours coding today but that was expected. Not many visible changes for the daily screenshot but there are multiple first aid boxes today! Some behind the scenes work organising the code and getting the Health bar set up. Code is a little messy in places and my variable names are really bad.
Spent some time on firing - thought of doing just a flashing beam but a travelling bullet is more visual. Difficulty in this game is making it move when the player moves e.g. a shot going right will move back the player moves SE. Turns out it was not too hard.
One little bonus today was I found I was updating at 4FPS. Changed that and my bullets flew a lot faster!! Tomorrow will be shooting in multiple directions and having something to shoot at.
Still not clear on the games ultimate goal - thinking about it...
