I'm programming a Side-Scroller, and I've reached the point where I need to program the enemy behaviour. I don't know what I should choose between hard-coding the enemy ships' behaviour or using a scripting language.
Going with the hardcoded way, all different kind of enemies would be different classes derived from an abstract
EnemyShip class with a virtual function redefined for each of them. Going with the scripting instead I could do just a base class and a script manager which moves the ships as needed.
What should I do?
