As you can see, I've gotten the shotgun working. Also, I've added a little weapon selection interface to the life bar.
So what next? Well, I'm planning on creating the boss of the first level next. I've gotten to the point now where I want to get working on more levels and enemies. I have two concrete level ideas that I would like to see running in the game.
Looking at that screenshot, I think the life bar is the best graphic in the whole game[grin]
