Re: My first project, advice and tips welcome!

Re: Colorpix

Simple and clean implementation of a fun concept. I only noticed one bug and I'll leave it up to you if it's actually a bug, but: If you click on the same color you clicked on last turn it still uses a turn, even when in theory this would never benefit you.

Re: My first project, advice and tips welcome!

Oops, I meant "for i,v in ipairs(table) do", but hopefully you are reading about that in a reference already. You bet. :) I rewrote all of the code to use this instead. I like it so much better. Here's my new cleanup function. function performCleanup() -- Remove dead enemies, but only if -- their f...

If you're looking for some help with the soundtrack, I'd be happy to oblige. I'm not a musician by trade, but I do write my own brand of electronic music as a hobby.

Okay, so I notice you are using a lot of table indexing with numbers. And then referencing the next one using table#+1 and so on.

Re: My first project, advice and tips welcome!

Ah just disregard that, it's probably from when I was playing around with getting Love packages to work. I will make sure that's not in there the next update I put out.
