Oh how I will relish the splatting of my foes againsts the ground after they were launched in the stratosphere by my stickies and rockets.
We also need some squishy sound effect for when they hit the ground. Anyone have some Spam (the meat product) we could throw against the wall and record?
Good, but you should make a sprite for when the player gets shot in the front, ending with the regular death sprite.
We could just do something like puting the various positions of getting hit from the front, back bottom ect. in one sprite with multiple frames and then set the image index to whatever based on h speed and v speed.
