Handles appearing and pickup of PowerUps

Designer and Programmer

Manuel Leuenberger


Every Entity capable of picking up powerups implements Extendable. If it can pick up the given type of powerup it does any modifications needed in pickup() and returns true, otherwise false.
PowerUp handles the way PowerUps appear. The subclasses are responsible for storing the impacts of picking up a powerup.


  • Implemented Extendable and PowerUp base class
  • SpaceShip is a Extendable
  • WeaponPowerUp is the first powerup of the new generation

Next steps

  • make PowerUp store method of reappearing
