"Guide Topher's head to avoid the dangerous dangers of the Forest of Doom (and beyond!). Collect the magic pizzas in order to grow a majestic beardly beard that may or may not protect you from harm."
As some of you may have guessed, this is my first attempt to create a flash game, and I'm brand new to actionscript (literally began learning it a month ago).
There are diagonal controls, so you're not limited to just up/down/left/right, if you hit both two arrow keys at a time, but yes, the controls are definitely on the sluggish side, and some physics would be a good addition. If there are any good tutorials to adjust that, please let me know. Thanks.
Also, as far as trigger area goes for the objects, if you know how to adjust that, I would much appreciate it. I'm just using a "hittestobject" code in actionscript 3.0 for it, and so the trigger area is set automatically. I have no idea how to go about adjusting it, because yes, it is very annoying how large the area is.
Mapping Topher to the mouse I feel would make the game far too easy, and thus I wanted to do something with the directional arrows instead, to give it a bizarre/frustrating challenge.
