Hello I am new to codea as well as coding I am trying to make a game similar to bit invader only horizontal. So far I have created a spaceship sprite which is movable as well as a background with some stars.
-- Use this function to perform your initial setup function setup() x = WIDTH/2 y = HEIGHT/2 c = color(0, 0, 0, 255) end -- This function gets called once every frame function draw() background(0, 0, 0, 225) sprite("SpaceCute:Star",374,374) sprite("SpaceCute:Star",100,150) sprite("SpaceCute:Star",400,550) sprite("SpaceCute:Star",600,200) sprite("SpaceCute:Star",150,650) sprite("SpaceCute:Star",650,700) -- Do your drawing here sprite("SpaceCute:Rocketship",150,y) end function touched(touch) x = x y = touch.y end
I am looking to have objects come on to the screen horizontally and have you control the spaceship to avoid them. However I am a stuck at how to get the objects to come onto the screen infinitely and how to get them to come on at random points in the right hand side. I believe you use something called math.random seed then enter coordinates. For example, (math.randomseed1,100) and then it will randomly chose between the 1 and 100 coordinates to come on. Deos anyone know how to apply this to my game. Please keep it as simple as possible and any help is greatly appreciated.
