This isn't meant for experts in flash, because its very simple. This is meant for people who are just beginning flash that want to create games.

It was originally meant for my friend, but I decided to make it for everyone. It is a little hard to understand once you get to walls, so any comments on how to fix it or questions you have would gladly be appreciated.

Thank you for viewing my tutorial, and enjoy.

P.S. Also, the preloader doesn't have the actual title of the game. That was done on purpose, or I would have changed it.

UPDATE: Code for boundaries fixed. You don't have to worry about it anymore.

Sorry about that!

thanks a ton! this is the only tutorial on making walls that works for me, I can finally finish my platformer, but one thing I still don't understand is why my character seems too sink a little bit into the ground and walls sometimes

candyapplezero responds:

That all depends on the variable of how high or fast the character is jumping or moving. Send me ur code i may be able to fix it

This is awesome

A 'back' button that goes back just one step would be nice though instead of right clicking and pressing 'back' all the time

I forgot to explain it. Sorry. All you have to do is copy and paste it. That was the point. Not many people want to listen to the paragraphs of explanation. If you had trouble understanding where I was pointing at, it might be because you are using a different version of flash then I am. I used Flash 8. Sorry for any inconveniece it caused you to watch.
