Here's a simple game code, open a new vb project and copy paste this code and hit run.
the game contains 3 levels, all you have to do is to shoot the smiley faces to earn money using mouse clicks, also there's a boss enemy on level 3.
I didn't have much time to add more levels to the game (actually i only tried to play it once :p), here's my point of this code "Just for fun" try to import some enemy characters(in a picturebox) and add more levels and add some sound effects to the shooting or when the enemies get hurt or whatever you would like to do.

First off, nice article.

Second off, Bug report. If you do not purchase and damage upgrades, but die on the boss. You will still have the option to buy the damage upgrade before starting the next round. This will allow you to buy (in my case) up to 6 upgrades. This subtracts from your credits as usual, but will allow for negative credits.

This is with no modifications to the code posted above.

You might want to add a couple lines in the Timer2_Tick method that will dispose the button and reset the credit count.

Me.Controls("btnNote").Dispose
Me.rewards = 0

Thank you for your notes.

As a game concept:
i didn't work that much on that part but still everything is editable
(variables, level etc..) and yes you are right i should remove the
upgrade button when the second round starts :D.

As for the bug
now let's talk coding, the upgrade button should be clicked once
(money issue resolved) and then disposed by the clear methode

 Private Sub clear(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs)
For XX = 0 To 10
On Error Resume Next
Me.Controls("BtnNote").Dispose()
Next
End Sub

yet for some reason i cant dispose this button as easily, that's why i
put a loop on the dispose part because at the first couple times it
will throw this error "object is not set to an instance of a object"
(i handled it by on error resume next) it's like the control "BtnNote"
never existed! But eventually it'll get disposed(according to my run
test), but not according to you..so damn :p i thought i did handle
this bug :D.
again thanks for your notes.

Line 302 has:
control.text = String.Concat("Level ", levelNum.ToString, " Lives ", lives.ToString, " Money: ", rewards.ToString)
This would do the same thing in a shorter format:
control.text = String.Format("Level {0} Lives {1} Money: {2}", levelNum, lives, rewards)

I have a suggestion for maybe stage 4 but I don't know how I can do it because I'm not a master in game development and math. I was thinking it would be nice if you can add stage 4 and the and the current stage 3 be stage 4 and stage 3 be a smile face that will bounce randomly left and right while moving down, the bounce can be random so that a user won't be able to track the loop meaning to guess the next bounce position like if it had moved 3 times left it my move maybe 4 times to the right and 3 times to the left, center, left, far right as it makes it move down.

This was just an idea I had when I played this game but then I'm not a game master.

Thank you.

Line 302 has: control.text = String.Concat("Level ", levelNum.ToString, " Lives ", lives.ToString, " Money: ", rewards.ToString) This would do the same thing in a shorter format: control.text = String.Format("Level {0} Lives {1} Money: {2}", levelNum, lives, rewards)

Yes you are right, and there's a lot of other ways to do it, but as long as it doesn't affect the performance or say the memory then there's no need to change it.

@ Mr.M

I have a suggestion...

This is a very simple code, i didn't use the math class or physics or any engine. As for your suggestion, i like the idea, you can add a level in the levels method and call it later, read through the code and you can figure it out easily (i know it a lot to read :D), but here's a sample on changing the position randomly on level 2 try it
add this to Private Sub Timer_Tick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)

        If levelNum = 2 Then
            Dim Rand = New Random()
            Dim Pos = Rand.Next(-50, 51)
            Dim Smiley = Rand.Next(i + 1)
            If Not IsNothing(Me.Controls("enemy" + Smiley.ToString)) Then
                If Not Me.Controls("enemy" + Smiley.ToString).Location.X + Pos > 250 Then
                    If Not Me.Controls("enemy" + Smiley.ToString).Location.X + Pos < 20 Then
                        Me.Controls("enemy" + Smiley.ToString).Location = New Point(Me.Controls("enemy" + Smiley.ToString).Location.X + Pos, Me.Controls("enemy" + Smiley.ToString).Location.Y)
                        Me.Controls("blood" + Smiley.ToString).Location = New Point(Me.Controls("blood" + Smiley.ToString).Location.X + Pos, Me.Controls("blood" + Smiley.ToString).Location.Y)
                    End If
                End If
            End If

        End If

@Mr.M Ok the full code is in the attached text file. what i did is that i added the above code(randomize) to line 207.
but i have to warn you, i gets pretty hard on level 2 :D
