Re: My enemies keep moving right.

Hi! 1) There is probably no reason to divide enemy x and y by 2 when comparing it with centre position of the player (if there is the there is the issue :)) 2) you compare x and y but then only update xvel of the enemy, not sure if enemy is list of enemies (suggested by the loop) or single one (sug...
