How can I keep my player accelerating down while moving left or right?
I have my game setup that if you touch one side of the screen the player moves that way. I have the player accelerating downwards so it gets harder to dodge obstacles as you go. But when my player moves, it stops going down and moves in a direction. Then when I stop touching, it restarts the acceleration process. How can I get the player to keep accelerating down while it moves?
