Hangout Highlights – Adding Power-ups To Desktop Games

Last week on Corona Geek Hangout 172, we talked about adding traps and pickups to our top down shooter game to help us battle the inbound zombie horde. We also added sounds, heads up display elements, and randomly generated bounding forest objects around the perimeter of our world. Here are clips from the Hangout.

Corona Geek #173 – Adding Game Controller Support

We also shared code snippets for normalizing rotation and splitting strings on specific values.
