    @Collin Wade Thiessen

    I was wondering how you do some things in your game? I've been racking my brain and cant figure it out.

    How did you do the rocket flying?
    How did you do the part where darthy starts losing energy and needs recharged?
    How did you do the little flying bubbles that give you a temporary boost?

    All are game play actions tweaked to suit the situation. No logic was used lol With the Rocket level I overlay the art and then for settings I took a screen shot of the flappy preset settings and started to tweak. Pretty much the same for the rest. The boost is only set for a second and then it goes back to regular gameplay settings. Losing energy is another action but I just limited the movement of the character each time it hit an invisible action. Pretty much my kids playing the game and saying "you know what would be cool".

    Super stoked you like it. Just received an espresso maker for a present.... me likey :D

    This guy reach out to me and asked if he could play DARTHY and of course I said yes. He plays with his chin and plays better than anyone including my kids at DARTHY. Please have a look at his video and like it if you get a chance as I'm sure he will be thrilled.

    And then I realize now that this was made with Buildbox 1. Considering the limitations Buildbox 1 must have had, Darthy is extremely innovative! I liked how you ended the game, the rocket ships crashing into walls part , and the humor too. "laughing in spanish" is a joke I still make until now. Sorry for stealing your joke
