Time for an update. Not much has changed since last time, visually. But underneith I’ve got a system for scripting enemy patterns and stuff, which is pretty nifty. Python’s generators are great for this kind of thing.
Here’s a screenshot:
The things glowing yellow are dead enemies that you can collect and become ammo as shown in the right sidebar. So the star-shaped enemies become shurikens that you can fire back with. This means I now actually comply with the theme! Hurrah!
Next I’m going to try and throw in some more enemies, then think about sound, I suppose.
