I started playing with Lua today, and decided to dive head first and attempt to make a game. The game will be a clone of an old arcade game called Tapper (has anyone heard of it?)
Basiclly, the game works like this: You are a bartender, and you have to keep the guests happy. You send drinks down the bar to the people who come in, and catch the empties they send back. If you miss an empty, or throw a full one to no body, you loose points.
I need to know how to randomly generate the guests that come in, how to get them out after they drink, and how to make them send back the drinks. That i feel is of the least importance right now.
More importantly, I was hoping someone had a collison and score keeping tutorial, because thats what I will really need help on. Thanks alot!
