Hello and welcome back, in this chapter we are going to continue creating the enemy manager class which will be used to create the enemy in the game.

First of all, we will create the enemy class which has a method to create the body and the speed of that particular enemy.

package com.gamingdirectional.lonemoon;

import com.badlogic.gdx.graphics.g2d.TextureRegion;
import com.badlogic.gdx.math.Vector2;
import com.badlogic.gdx.physics.box2d.Body;
import com.badlogic.gdx.physics.box2d.BodyDef;
import com.badlogic.gdx.physics.box2d.Fixture;
import com.badlogic.gdx.physics.box2d.FixtureDef;
import com.badlogic.gdx.physics.box2d.PolygonShape;
import com.badlogic.gdx.physics.box2d.World;

import java.util.Random;

public class Enemy {

    private Body body;
    final static int BOX2D_TOGAME_SCALE = 1;
    private Random rn = new Random();

    public void createBodyFixture(TextureRegion enemyRegion, World world, Vector2 position) {

        // First we create a body definition
        BodyDef bodyDef = new BodyDef();
        // We set our body to dynamic, for something like ground which doesn't move we would set it to StaticBody
        bodyDef.type = BodyDef.BodyType.DynamicBody;
        // Set our body's starting position in the world
        bodyDef.position.set(position.x, position.y);

        // Create our body in the world using our body definition
        body = world.createBody(bodyDef);

        // Create a box shape and set its radius
        PolygonShape box = new PolygonShape();
        box.setAsBox(enemyRegion.getRegionWidth()/2*BOX2D_TOGAME_SCALE, enemyRegion.getRegionHeight()/2*BOX2D_TOGAME_SCALE);

        // Create a fixture definition to apply our shape to
        FixtureDef fixtureDef = new FixtureDef();
        fixtureDef.shape = box;
        fixtureDef.density = 0.5f;
        fixtureDef.friction = 0.3f;
        fixtureDef.restitution = 0.6f; // Make it bounce a little bit

        // Create our fixture and attach it to the body
        Fixture fixture = body.createFixture(fixtureDef);

        // Remember to dispose of any shapes after you're done with them!
        // BodyDef and FixtureDef don't need disposing, but shapes do.

        // link body to player missile

        // set up the velocity and force of the enemy plane
        body.applyForceToCenter(0, -rn.nextInt(50),  false);
        body.setLinearVelocity(0, -100);


    public Body getEnemyBody() {
        return body;

The next step is to create the enemy factory manager class which will be called from the MainActivity class to create the enemy plane.

package com.gamingdirectional.lonemoon;

import com.badlogic.gdx.graphics.g2d.TextureAtlas;
import com.badlogic.gdx.graphics.g2d.TextureRegion;
import com.badlogic.gdx.math.Vector2;
import com.badlogic.gdx.physics.box2d.World;

import java.util.ArrayList;

public class EnemyFactory {

    private World world;
    private Enemy enemy;
    private TextureAtlas atlas;
    private ArrayList<Enemy> enemy_list = new ArrayList<Enemy>();
    private TextureRegion enemyRegion;

    EnemyFactory(World world, TextureAtlas atlas) {
        this.world = world;
        this.atlas = atlas;
        this.enemyRegion = atlas.findRegion("enemy0");

    public void createEnemy(Vector2 position) {
        enemy = new Enemy();
        enemy.createBodyFixture(enemyRegion, world, position);

    public ArrayList<Enemy> getEnemy_list() {
        return enemy_list;


Finally, we need to edit the MainActivity class to make it creates the enemy plane for every certain period of time.

package com.gamingdirectional.lonemoon;

import com.badlogic.gdx.ApplicationAdapter;
import com.badlogic.gdx.Gdx;
import com.badlogic.gdx.graphics.GL20;
import com.badlogic.gdx.graphics.OrthographicCamera;

import com.badlogic.gdx.graphics.g2d.SpriteBatch;
import com.badlogic.gdx.graphics.g2d.TextureAtlas;
import com.badlogic.gdx.graphics.g2d.TextureRegion;
import com.badlogic.gdx.math.Vector2;
import com.badlogic.gdx.math.Vector3;
import com.badlogic.gdx.physics.box2d.Box2DDebugRenderer;
import com.badlogic.gdx.physics.box2d.World;
import com.badlogic.gdx.scenes.scene2d.Stage;
import com.badlogic.gdx.utils.viewport.FitViewport;

import java.util.Random;

public class MainActivity extends ApplicationAdapter  {

	SpriteBatch batch;
	OrthographicCamera camera;

	float viewportHeight;
	TextureRegion bgRegion;
	TextureRegion planeRegion;

	Vector3 cameraposition = new Vector3();
	DetectTouch touchadaptor;
	Player player;
	World world;
	static final float STEP_TIME = 1f/60f;
	float accumulator = 0;

	final static int BOX2D_TOGAME_SCALE = 1;
	private FitViewport viewport;
	private Stage bj;

    private PlaneMissileFactory plane_missile_factory;
	private EnemyFactory enemy_factory;
	private Random rnd;
	private Vector2 enemyPosition = new Vector2();
	private int enemy_creation_count = 0;

	public MainActivity(int width, int height) {
		viewportWidth = width;
		viewportHeight = height;
	public void create () {

	public void render () {
		Gdx.gl.glClearColor(1, 0, 0, 1);

	private void drawGame() {

		batch.draw(bgRegion, 0, 0);
        batch.draw(controllerRegion, viewportWidth/2 - controllerRegion.getRegionWidth()/2, controller_knobRegion.getRegionHeight()/5);
        batch.draw(controller_knobRegion, viewportWidth/2 - controller_knobRegion.getRegionWidth()/2, 0);
		batch.draw((TextureRegion) player.getPlayerBody().getUserData(), player.getPlayerBody().getPosition().x-planeRegion.getRegionWidth()/2, player.getPlayerBody().getPosition().y-planeRegion.getRegionHeight()/2);
		font.draw(batch, score, viewportWidth/6-font.getScaleX()/2, viewportHeight - font.getScaleY()/4);
		debugRenderer.render(world, camera.combined);

	private void drawEnemyPlane() {
		for(Enemy enemy : enemy_factory.getEnemy_list()) {
			if(enemy != null)
				batch.draw((TextureRegion) enemy.getEnemyBody().getUserData(), enemy.getEnemyBody().getPosition().x-((TextureRegion) enemy.getEnemyBody().getUserData()).getRegionWidth()/2, enemy.getEnemyBody().getPosition().y-((TextureRegion) enemy.getEnemyBody().getUserData()).getRegionHeight()/2);

	private void drawPlaneMissile() {
    	for(PlaneMissile planemissile : plane_missile_factory.getPlane_missile_list()) {
    		if(planemissile != null)
				batch.draw((TextureRegion) planemissile.getPlaneMissileBody().getUserData(), planemissile.getPlaneMissileBody().getPosition().x-((TextureRegion) planemissile.getPlaneMissileBody().getUserData()).getRegionWidth()/2, planemissile.getPlaneMissileBody().getPosition().y-((TextureRegion) planemissile.getPlaneMissileBody().getUserData()).getRegionHeight()/2);

	private void updateCamera() {
		cameraposition.set(player.getPlayerBody().getPosition().x, player.getPlayerBody().getPosition().y,0);

	private void updateGame() {

	// create latest enemy
	private void updateEnemy() {
		if(enemy_creation_count > 300) {
			enemy_factory.createEnemy(enemyPosition.set(rnd.nextFloat()*viewportWidth, viewportHeight));
			enemy_creation_count = 0;

	// step time control
	private void updatePosition() {

		float delta = Gdx.graphics.getDeltaTime();

		accumulator += Math.min(delta, 0.25f);

		if (accumulator >= STEP_TIME) {
			accumulator -= STEP_TIME;
			world.step(STEP_TIME, 6, 2);

	private void updateScore() {
		//Float f = player.getPlayerBody().getPosition().x;
		//score.replace(0, 1, f.toString());

	/* resetting game objects, background, font, camera, and create sprite batch object */

	private void resetGame() {
		batch = new SpriteBatch();
		atlas = new TextureAtlas(Gdx.files.internal("lonemoon.txt"));
		debugRenderer = new Box2DDebugRenderer();

	private void resetRandomFenerator() {
		rnd = new Random();

	private void resetEnemyFactory() {
		enemy_factory = new EnemyFactory(world, atlas);

	private void resetPlaneMissileFactory() {
        plane_missile_factory = new PlaneMissileFactory(world, atlas);

    private void resetPysWorld() {
		world = new World(new Vector2(0, 0), false);

	private void resetScore() {
		point = 0;

	private void resetFont() {

		font = new BitmapFont(Gdx.files.internal("freefont.fnt"),
				Gdx.files.internal("freefont.png"), false);

	private void resetCamera() {
		camera = new OrthographicCamera();
		camera.setToOrtho(false, viewportWidth, viewportHeight);
		viewport = new FitViewport(viewportWidth, viewportHeight, camera);

	private void resetPlane() {
		planeRegion = atlas.findRegion("plane");//new TextureRegion(plane, plane.getWidth(), plane.getHeight());
		planePosition= new Vector2();
		touchPosition=new Vector2();
		planePosition.set((viewportWidth/2-planeRegion.getRegionWidth()/2)/BOX2D_TOGAME_SCALE, (viewportHeight/2 - planeRegion.getRegionHeight()/2)/BOX2D_TOGAME_SCALE);
		player = new Player(planePosition, world, planeRegion);
		touchadaptor = new DetectTouch(player, viewportHeight, viewportWidth, controller_knobRegion, this, plane_missile_factory);

	private void resetBackground() {
		bgRegion = atlas.findRegion("background0");//new TextureRegion(background, background.getWidth(), background.getHeight());

	private void resetGameController() {
	    controllerRegion = atlas.findRegion("controller");
        controller_knobRegion = atlas.findRegion("controller_knob");

	public void dispose () {


The final outcome is as below, the MainActivity class will count through a certain number before creating a new enemy plane on this game scene.
