Help creating array of picture elements

Hello, I have copied the code from Game Tutorial and I have modified it to produce the bellow code. It works but I have many more images to load from each reel. How would I make an array of the variable element myGamePiece instead of calling each one by its name?

    myGamePiece1  = new component(500, 200, "Image5.jpg", 0, -200,    "image", 5);


function component(width, height, color, x, y, type) {
    this.type = type;
    if (type == "image") {
        this.image = new Image();
        this.image.src = color;
    }
    this.width = width;
    this.height = height;
    this.speedX = 0;
    this.speedY = 0;    
    this.x = x;
    this.y = y;    
    this.update = function() {
        ctx = myGameArea.context;
        if (type == "image") {
            ctx.drawImage(this.image, 
                this.x, 
                this.y,
                this.width, this.height);
        } else {
            ctx.fillStyle = color;
            ctx.fillRect(this.x, this.y, this.width, this.height);
        }
    }
    this.newPos = function() {
        this.x += this.speedX;
        this.y += this.speedY;        
    }
}

…did you try making an array and adding the different elements to it?
I don’t understand the question. Did you try that and encounter an error or what’s the problem?

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).

I need to load at least 25 images . Tried with array but code never works. No errors, just does not work.

Trying to upload the whole code so you can see what I am trying to do…
