Our basic laser projectile is the default for our game but let’s add an occasional, over-powered projectile that ‘seeks’ an enemy when fired.

First, we add the photon laser (that’s what I’m calling it) power-up collectable in the usual way; duplicating an existing powerup, changing the artwork and the powerup…

We’ve implemented damage already for our player and given them 3 lives. Let’s add a health pick-up that can repair their ship.
