I am looking for some links/algorithms to program some enemy attack waves (80s style shootem up).. For example, enemies coming down in zig-zag patterns, or entering the screen on the left, doing a circular loop and leaving the screen on the right (1942, or Galaxians style)..
Suprisingly, considering the amount of shootemups out there, I can't find a single thing on google. Am considering using Bezier Curves, or Sine Waves unless anyone can provide me with a better tip/method..
(ps. For 4K, so looking for a few simple algorithms only).
Thnx Edit: Happy New Year Everyone!!
