Long story short: I was creating a sprite for a different game, when I was browsing for examples this idea came to mind for a new take on breakout. I just finished the background and sprites when I started to have different ideas about the game and how to implement it.
So, in general: I have a desert background, a road that spans left and right at the screen bottom. A guard tower centered on the road with a short wall dividing the sides. A tall barracks building on each of the far edges of the screen with a flag atop the barracks. There will be 2 tanks on either side of the wall. Each tank (1 controlled by a human and the other by cpu) will attempt to destroy the others barracks. Kinda like breakout.
I just created each object- background, road, tower, wall and tanks. I did the beginners tutorial (ghost shooter) but finding it hard to find the correct events/ actions to control the tank. When I move forward the tank goes off screen. I tried bound to but it didn't work. When I reverse, the tank flips upside down. And I can move up & down. Which I only need to move left and right. Dont' know if it's correct but, I wanted to start with getting the tank moving in the right directions. Also, the tank drives behind the tower.
I tried looking through the manual, no help there.
