Today was full of implementing all of the code, art assets and animations for a variety of game powerups. Watching the final version slowly come together is really rewarding. I can see the home stretch, but my progress tracker reminds me that I am still just over 50% complete with this 2D Space Shooter game.
Once again today I was a bit overwhelmed with trying to comprehend and fully understand all of the commands and connections between working parts, but am reassured that hopefully these things will become faster and easier with enough repetition. For now, I will keep using all of my recourses as a guiding light, until my brain can eventually put the pieces together without so much help. Everyone at some point needs help with something, so never be afraid to ask.
