Lets Make a Retro Game: EP 12: Player Lives

In this episode we are going to cover two things, detecting whether any enemy objects hit the player ship as well as display the number of lives the players has remaining.

This will also include detecting when the player is out of lives and ending the game.  We will enhance this some more in a future episode.

The supplied code has two folders, Start, where we start the episode and End the final code and a copy of the ROM file. Download Source Code.
