-A vertical health bar that degenerates health.
-Ways to increase the health bar such as tapping/touching/gliding.

Thanks

    @beckb Google health bar gamesalad and you'll find lots of help with creating health bars.

    To allow the player to increase the bar, you'd need to constrain its height to an attribute (e.g. game.health) plus an additional attribute (e.g. game.playerAdded).

    My jaw dropped @ how easy that looked. Thank you.

    Is it also possible for the health bar to not necessarily be a "bar" but a graphic/sprite that changes appearance upon increasing or decreasing health? Like a balloon that starts off big but gets gradually smaller the more you shoot at it.

    its possible as long as your artwork can handle the shrinking and stretching without looking like crap

    If you want it to change appearance completely and not just shrink/expand, sure you can make a separate image for each "phase" :) should be a safe move if you're only talking about a health bar of considerable size and only a few variants (ie the usual, Green->Yellow->Orange->Red).

    Just change the image every so often (at 100% of max health, 75%, etc).
