Sprite attempt #1: FAILED!
So I was a bit over-ambitious when it came to making that game. Then I realized I was breaking the rules the instructor set out for us (no more than two sprites) so I had to scrap the whole project anyway.
Instead, I will try to make the most simple Sprite game yet. Probably a Pong thing, or something like it.
I am not going to do that right now though.
