Scores, Background, and Game Over

I added scoring to the game.  I still need to figure out how the player should get points – right now it is just by eating food, so scores don’t get very big.

Also I added a placeholder background image.  Looks a lot better than the plain gray background.

ALSO I added a “Game Over” screen that shows when the player’s pigeon dies, plus a single-frame death sprite for the player.

I didn’t get sound effects added, so that’ll be on the task-list for next week, along with bonus foods and special waves.  I also want to do some more work on the rendering code, so I may be able to add lighting effects later.
