How to make a object move towards a location
I did manage to do this but it doesn't work!
https://microstudio.io/Monkeyy/wires/G4M66353/ - Press q and it should move towards the mouse, but it doesn't.
Here's the code:
if keyboard.Q then
plr.x = plr.x + cosd(angle) * 2
plr.y = plr.y + sind(angle) * 2
--Note press left click to set the location it should move towards

The Y axis is inverted in microStudio (for simplicity).
You need to reverse the direction (angle) returned by getAngle (atan2) by 180 degrees.
screen.setRotation( angle )
- rotates the coordinate axis by a given angle.
this causes if you used
screen.drawSprite( name_sprite, player.x, player.y , 40, 40 )
sprite would be in the wrong place.
You need to use setTranslation.
