Lets Make a Retro Game Ep8: Move and Shoot

In this episode we are going to get some objects moving on the screen by:

  • Testing the joystick direction and moving the player ship left or right
  • Testing the joystick fire button and placing a bullet on screen
  • Moving the current player bullet up the screen.

I have included the complete code for this section, so you can follow through the various steps without having to worry about typing in code.

The supplied code has two f

olders, Start, where we start in this episode and End the final code and a copy of the ROM file.
