Something to do while checking out Dave’s joystick code...

I came across @dave1707 dual joystick code example and added a bit too it. Now you can shoot at some bothersome gnats flying around you. It’s pretty dumb but, I thought it a little more entertaining while evaluating Dave’s code :D . If its too easy, you can uncomment some code in the collision detect function to make things much harder. Cheers!

    @krdavis Nice demo, no code is dumb because it will teach someone something. Plus it gave you something to code.

    @UberGoober You need to load the Codea Game Sounds. Look in assets.

    @dave1707 thanks!

    @krdavis This is cool!

    As a game it doesn’t really feel like the player has a chance against the flies, though.

    I made some tweaks to make it feel more achievable to get all the flies, plus some cosmetic stuff:

    • Circles are more transparent
    • Vignette effect at corners of screen
    • Small shadow under main character
    • Player’s shots are larger and more colorful
    • Sound effect for shooting added
    • Sound effect for hitting a fly changed
    • Flys are larger
    • Fewer flies
    • Lessened the amount the player can go off the sides of the screen in each direction
    • New icon more close-in on player

    Update: made the sounds quieter and less annoying. Note the word “less”. ;)
