Or you might want to create a duck that can only walk left. Whatever your reasons, you specify things to occur only in specific directions.
I have created a series of intermediate tutorials for PuzzleScript. These tutorials are aimed at someone with no prior knowledge about programming, except that you have read my beginner tutorials for PuzzleScript.
This post contains a bunch of colour palettes you can use in your games and pixel art projects, as well as some resources for helping you to automatically generate or manually create your own palettes, as well as some other resources. Updated periodically as I discover more stuff.
