Hangout Highlights – Adding Missile Shooting Turrets – Using Gravity In Games – Part 5
Last week on Corona Geek Hangout 159, we continued development on our “Monsters Need Coins” game. Ed Maurina walked us through adding static missile shooting turrets to the game, along with adding homing missiles that follow the player around the platforms. We discussed the vector math involved to accomplish this and looked at the code for adding the turrets.
