Help with increasing speed with invoke?

So I am trying to build a game where after a collision takes pace with an enemy and an object, a new prefab (which is the same as the enemy destroyed) gets created, however I wan't all the enemies to accelearte by 1f every second so that the game gets progressively harder, however when testing this with invoke , for some reason I get plateus where the speed increases for some time than plateus at around 12f, before inreasing a little more and stopping again( as in the speed stops increasing for some time) why is this?
Thanks in advance!

The code:

    void IncreaseVelocity()
        EnemySpeed += 1;

    void Start()
        EnemyTransform = GetComponent<Transform>();
        EnemyRb = GetComponent<Rigidbody2D>();
        InvokeRepeating("IncreaseVelocity", 1f, 1f);


What have you tried already to fix or diagnose it? You've provided very little to help you.

why is this?

Since you posted essentially no code, here is how you can figure it out yourself!

You must find a way to get the information you need in order to reason about what the problem is.

What is often happening in these cases is one of the following:

  • the code you think is executing is not actually executing at all
  • the code is executing far EARLIER or LATER than you think
  • the code is executing far LESS OFTEN than you think
  • the code is executing far MORE OFTEN than you think
  • the code is executing on another GameObject than you think it is
  • you’re getting an error or warning and you haven’t noticed it in the console window

To help gain more insight into your problem, I recommend liberally sprinkling Debug.Log() statements through your code to display information in realtime.

Doing this should help you answer these types of questions:

  • is this code even running? which parts are running? how often does it run? what order does it run in?
  • what are the values of the variables involved? Are they initialized? Are the values reasonable?
  • are you meeting ALL the requirements to receive callbacks such as triggers / colliders (review the documentation)

Knowing this information will help you reason about the behavior you are seeing.

You can also supply a second argument to Debug.Log() and when you click the message, it will highlight the object in scene, such as Debug.Log("Problem!",this);

If your problem would benefit from in-scene or in-game visualization, Debug.DrawRay() or Debug.DrawLine() can help you visualize things like rays (used in raycasting) or distances.

You can also call Debug.Break() to pause the Editor when certain interesting pieces of code run, and then study the scene manually, looking for all the parts, where they are, what scripts are on them, etc.

You can also call GameObject.CreatePrimitive() to emplace debug-marker-ish objects in the scene at runtime.

You could also just display various important quantities in UI Text elements to watch them change as you play the game.

If you are running a mobile device you can also view the console output. Google for how on your particular mobile target, such as this answer or iOS: or this answer for Android:

Another useful approach is to temporarily strip out everything besides what is necessary to prove your issue. This can simplify and isolate compounding effects of other items in your scene or prefab.

Here’s an example of putting in a laser-focused Debug.Log() and how that can save you a TON of time wallowing around speculating what might be going wrong:
