Power-ups, treasure, items, collectibles; Pickups, as they will be referred to in this text, go by a variety of names. In this game, there will be two types: one will simply increase the score while the other will give Vlad a boost in health. These sound like simple uses for pickups, but they can also act as helpful hints to the player, guiding them if they get stuck or helping them remember an area they may have already visited.
The pickups will require two sprite resources, two objects resources, and one script resource. The object resources will have only a Create event. The Collision events will be added to
obj_vlad so it can interact with the pickups.
