Finally got the Mariokart-style pickup manager working, it basically took me all week to get these working with my artist brains.
When you pick up a green powerup box while flying around, you get assigned a random powerup from the arsenal. Individual rarity of the powerups can be changed for balancing purposes.
Currently available powerups are:
- Energy pack: restores 1/4 of your energy meter each. The most common.
- Shield: Generates a shield around the player ship, negating all enemy fire and obstacles.
- shockwave: Creates a shockwave explosion at the location of usage which destroys all obstacles in its radius. (Mostly done by Emilie)
- Full restore: Restores the whole energy meter. All of it.
