LoL... i for one would be happy to work with you on a galaga type of code. Otherwise, asking directly for code around here is like asking the Buddha for infinite wisdom.

You just want to learn how to make and paste sprites, really.
Check the help section in the editor.

the SPRITE command makes them
(HIDE SPRITE will hide the sprite if needed)
PASTE SPRITE will paste a copy of the sprite to the screen

Sprites have their own collision box, but in standard DBPro I think they are limited to a non-rotating box or rectangle.

Actually, years ago I wrote a game called Insectoidz! that was patterned after Galaga. The code is 3300+ lines long. As I remember, I spent quite a bit of time making my own sprites for it. In the attached pic, it shows where the player's ship was captured. Like in Galaga, the captured ship is taken back to the dragonfly's position and brought with it when it attacks again and if you shoot the dragonfly twice it will release the ship to give you a second ship at the same time. The problem is that once you have two ships, you are pretty much invincible, and the game is too easy. I would also be glad to help you develop a game like this, but I don't want to simply post the code.



So many games to code.....so little time.
