Corona Geek #169 – Firing Weapons and Refined Simple Pathfinding
On today’s Corona Geek Hangout we continued our desktop game development series with the exploration of vector math calculations for firing arrows at zombies. We also looked at a refined version of last week’s simple pathfinding example. The updated version turns the enemy players into smart zombies that chase the player around the screen.
