Adjust delay of depending on score?

Recommended Posts

I have a game where items fall from the top of the screen at intervals. Currently this interval is set using a timing loop (at 5 seconds):

timerPos = * 5, positiveBall);

I would like to change the timing depending on what the score is, e.g. if the score is greater than 20, change the loop to every 4 seconds instead. I tried setting a time in a variable (spawnRate), and using the update function, like so

var spawnRate = 5;

create: function() [
    timerPos = * spawnRate, positiveBall);


update: function() {
        if (score > 20) {
            spawnRate = 4;

This has had no effect though. I assume as the loop is set in the create function, it can't be changed like this? How else could I tackle this?
