I'm programming 80s style shoot'em up game.
I'd use eight direction excluding upright downright upleft and downleft (like Space Invaders cannon!).
But I prefer bouncing ball movement (only left and right) so I can choose keyobard keys what i want.
But in bouncing ball movement I can use maximum decelleration only, and spaceship remains stop on left and right key pression.
Is there a method to use maximum accelleration and decelleration like eight direction movement?
