SPRITES are the little beasties you see running about in all arcade games. The hero, the ship, the aliens, the bullets, the explosions - these are all SPRITES. Everything that moves is a SPRITE. Everything that is a SPRITE will move.
The SPRITE EDITOR will allow you to colour, twist, turn and generally manipulate all of the 127 sprites you can use in your game however you wish.
Use the joystick to select which sprite you want to abuse next.
Now you can move the flashing square all over the grid and fill in the PIXELS with your present colour by pressing fire.
Modify your present colour using the palette at the bottom of the screen.
Choose which colour to paint with next using this option. You are allowed 3 colours (plus the background colour used for erasing). You'll be lumbered with two of them for all of your sprites so make sure you really want them. The third can be different on every sprite you design.
This allows you to slide your sprite around in its little box.
And this allows you to reflect it in different directions.
Use this option to COPY a SPRITE you have designed to another place. First it will ask you which SPRITE you want to copy from. Then it will want to know where to copy it to. It's as simple as that and incredibly useful when you want to do some animation.
This function comes in handy when you have designed something so appalling that there is no hope for it.
