Enemy names

I realized that I'm not all that creative when it comes to enemy names. For my enemy code, each enemy has a textual name that it's referred to in labels, in the map editor, etc.

Here's a handful of the names so far:

  • flapper
  • hopper
  • walker
  • gunner
  • diver
  • zapper
  • spitter
And then some that are even more boring:
  • blob
  • boss1
  • boss2
  • boss3
  • barrier
  • fish
Good thing these names are all secret....
