Day 7 - 13th Nov 2017


I took the weekend off as my brother was visiting. 

Today I wanted to make the game feel more engaging, I'm still holding off replacing my procedural level generation code but I intend to do it in the next couple of days. 

I've given up trying to get the buggy HTML5 output from GMS to display properly in Itch, but the downside of compiling it to a Windows Exe is that overzealous antivirus tools try to lock the file down at every opportunity - I'll have to work on this problem further!

Added much requested strafe feature (shift+left/right) which really helps the game dynamic

Pressing 'm' now toggles the music

Replaced the game over pop-up with a proper screen followed by game restart after 5s.
