Game Dev Diary: Asset Reuse Invaders v0.11

Wrong on so many Levels.

Exciting things have happened! I figured out how to make tables inside tables inside tables, and having made use of it like this:

I was able to create 20 different levels, with different layouts. I had to modify my invader creation routine:

See that #levels[level][row][col] notation? That’s the clever bit I was trying to get my head round. Very pleased with this.

In addition, I’ve modified the player sprite, changed the title and Game Over screen, and implemented three different cats that fire at different rates and speeds.

The upshot of all this, is I have what could be considered a finished game. There’s still no sound, of course, and there’s some tidying up to do with things. And I haven’t done the UFO either. But, it’s nearly there and – bugs notwithstanding – fully playable!
