Well, last night, I went back to work on the lettuce game again. I fixed a whole bunch of stuff. Like I discovered that if you have the lettuce and ship overlap and press fire then the lettuce disappeared. Fixed. I made the lettuce speed random. I also fixed the shooting problems. Like when you hold down fire, the ship kept shooting. This has been fixed. I also made the missile disappear when the game ends, you lose a life, or you hit the lettuce. A few days ago, I made the ship's vertical movements faster.
I don't know how much room I have left for improvements. But judging from the amount of code I have in the game now, probably not very much, just a few hundred bytes or so. I'm just glad I was able to get all the fixes in and still have the rom be 2k. The Kevin Vs. Tomatoes manual will be a fold-out 6 page manual. I tried to make it 8 pages, but there wasn't enough stuff I wanted to put in it to do so.
I don't know what to do next for Killer Heads of Lettuce. Is the game finished? What do I need to do with it? If someone could download it and play it on MESS and give feedback, it would be really helpful. The link to download the latest version is in my signature. And when I was done, I slept for 13 hours. And I'm still sleepy. I just woke up about an hour ago, at 2PM.
