Game Gravity

Gravity

To add this functionality to our component constructor, first add a gravity property, which sets the current gravity. Then add a gravitySpeed property, which increases everytime we update the frame:

Example

function component(width, height, color, x, y, type) {
  this.type = type;
  this.width = width;
  this.height = height;
  this.x = x;
  this.y = y;
  this.speedX = 0;
  this.speedY = 0;
  this.gravity = 0.05;
  this.gravitySpeed = 0;
  this.update = function() {
    ctx = myGameArea.context;
    ctx.fillStyle = color;
    ctx.fillRect(this.x, this.y, this.width, this.height);
  }
  this.newPos = function() {
    this.gravitySpeed += this.gravity;
    this.x += this.speedX;
    this.y += this.speedY + this.gravitySpeed;
  }
}


Hit the Bottom

To prevent the red square from falling forever, stop the falling when it hits the bottom of the game area:

Example

this.newPos = function() {
    this.gravitySpeed += this.gravity;
    this.x += this.speedX;
    this.y += this.speedY + this.gravitySpeed;
    this.hitBottom();
  }
  this.hitBottom = function() {
    var rockbottom = myGameArea.canvas.height - this.height;
    if (this.y > rockbottom) {
      this.y = rockbottom;
    }
  }


Accelerate Up

In a game, when you have a force that pulls you down, you should have a method to force the component to accelerate up.

Trigger a function when someone clicks a button, and make the red square fly up in the air:

Example

<script>
function accelerate(n) {
myGamePiece.gravity = n;
}
</script>

<button onmousedown="accelerate(-0.2)" onmouseup="accelerate(0.1)">ACCELERATE</button>
