I’ve uploaded an update for the Space Invaders HTML5 demo. This version is almost complete.
- Game Over works properly
- Game resets properly when level clear
Both issues were caused because Game Maker HTML5 games do not work with user-defined Triggers when a game is built as an HTML5 application. I worked around this by re-implementing the Trigger code in the Step event instead.
- Invader count is correct: 55 per screen.
- Aliens speed up when their numbers are reduced. (This is proven in concept, I haven’t added all the speed ups yet. Aliens are still moving smoothly rather than marching in discrete steps.)
- High Score screen now displays scores.
Still working on the High Score screen. It is not working correctly; the list only stores the top 1 score, not the top 10. It’s also not as pretty as it could be.
