    That's pretty good. Add a few scrolling levels and enemies to avoid, it could be a winner - and a good start for making a Thing on a Spring engine (a classic 8 bit game by Gremlin graphics).

    I'll give the above a try. If I can't get it to work, then I'll stick with the fastloop until I come across an example. Thanks Corlen.

    I've used the layer object before, but never for making objects appear in front or behind each other based on their y positions.

    How do I use the layer object to do the above fastloop equivalent?
