Tutorial 15 : Adding Health Bars – Extended

Up until now, we use the enemies colour to represent his health, and while this works quite nicely for our little black blob, it doesn’t work so well with more complex sprites.
In this tutorial we are going to add little health bars that will float above our enemies heads. A lot of the code in this tutorial has been inspired from George Clingerman’s amazing tutorial on health bars. So if you are struggling with this tutorial, I would recommend reading his first as he explains it in more depth than I will.
