Adventure Game Basics - Part 14: Adding basic scrolling shooter mechanics

This video assumes that you have already watched and followed the NESmaker 4.5 Orientation on the LEARN page and all videos up to this point. Even though we will be working on a basic scrolling shooter game in this step, it will use the base module that we constructed for the adventure game, and the changes we made for the platform game. It will build on skills learned and the project built in those videos. It will also require additional files, which you can download at this link:

In this tutorial, we will add a handful of scripts that will convert our scrolling platform game into a horizontal shooter. If you have been following along, the setup for this won't take much time at all, but we will dive much deeper into the differences between the scripts on a conceptual level.
