People still seem to use this tutorial, better check out _ULTIMATE TUTORIAL 2_, it also covers this subject.

My second tutorial. It's how to make a simple game. It's only for beginners (but you already have to know a little bit about flash)
Please put it in the review if you found something in the tutorial thats not correct. And review if you have any tips for me. Note: The may be a few grammar/spelling foults in this tutorial, but thats because i'm not english. Hope you like my new tutorial!



Only helped me with the spaceship part! The scoreboard thing didn't work! Well at least there's sound, but the graphics are crappy. Meh...


Lets just put it this way, its a nice effort and the animations are okay. Things that bothered me though:
- The text to explain things is mostly hard to read (way too small).
- The actionscript is absolutelly horible!
Generally you should never use more then 1 onEnterFrame event per movieclip. And what you did is an absolute mess. You used an onEnterFrame event for every single line of code! What the hell?? That would slow down any bigger game as hell...

Well next time it might be better to actually learn actionscript before making tutorials about it. Rather stick to animation tutorials for now.


I understand that its a tutorial but what I cant understand is anything else. I could not read anything that you were doing! This flash should be updated so The newest additions of flash could still use. I was looking for half the shortcuts you did and had no Idea where you were finding these script shortcuts. Not sure if its me because im a beginner using CS4 or the flash tutorial.

But some good critizism.... I liked the stick guy running and putting up the objects.
Oh and Plz update. I really want to learn scripts so thank you for posting. Kept me busyish. Thank you :)

Worst Tutorial Yet

By far the worst tutorial i have ever followed. Config was wrong and the coding worked by was explained and represented in such a way that it was hard to follow. Resulting in a failure due to sucky ass instructions

IM HAVINg problems

i am using flash mx 2004, and your script doesn't work with it.
it will work all the way up to the exploding player thing, also the is no panel option on mx 2004.

other than that, it was easy to understand
