Component.GetComponent Trouble

I followed a tutorial the Walkerboys and I got an error:
BCE0019: ‘life’ is not a member of ‘UnityEngine.Component’.

life is my var.
I copied everything from the tutorial and put this to call the variable from my Player Class “sPlayer”: other.GetComponent("sPlayer").life -= 1;

I’m also having the same error, but this time it is calling a function, under the tutorial scene manager.
I couldn’t call the function AddScore() to the bullet function (thats the projectile)


Try without the quotation marks.

Yeah, that worked perfectly. Also your script name shouldnt have any spaces, my was called “script player” and that was giving me problems.
