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

The video associated with this episode is located here.
