my character is meant to shoot both left and right. i have successfully created it to shoot right, but even when the character turns left he doesn't shoot left. the bubbles (bullet) keep shooting right, even as he moves left. Pleas help someone.. it for my AP exams and its due very soon.

Because you are not turning the character to face left (you are just changing its image to one that faces left).
