well,i know lots of actionscript...

but as far as tutorials for it...typos don't belong.
Anyone who doesn't know scripts'll see typos &
expect your scripts to be typos too.I did at first,
but it appears you got 'em all straight.That's a +.

Now,as for the graphics score,it really isn't required.
(He's tryin' to teach you AS,not how to draw,folks...)
Style:Well...it's a tutorial,they're VERY common.=5
Sound:I like EON's music...yyyyup:10
Interactivity:Well,the start button had a problem...only one
part of it could be clicked,fix that,and you get a 10 for Interactivity.
Overall:I give you a 4/5 and an 8/10

Helping people always gets high scores from me.
Fix those errors I mentioned and you get 5/5 & 10/10

Well ok...

I didn't really learn anything from this... but it's not horrible either. The little push the button for the keycode number thingy that you had a link to was cool. But it could use a bit more. I don't know what exactly it's missing but it is missing something. 3/10

There are SOOO many tutorials on Newgrounds. There are way more than anyone actually needs! This one was pointless. Sure it actually "teachs" you some AS, but that was so short it was pointless! It was like 6 pages. And, would it kill you to use some kind of backround thats not black or some music thats not ridiculously obnoxious?

thequackattack responds:

and your point is...

OK tut

Theres loads of tuts and I don't pass them unless they have something, which I think this has.

However it could do with tidying up. As you say it has a lot of typos- with tuts its got to be right, to keep peoples confidence. Always get someone to view your work before you post it.
I don't use much AS so I'm not much of a judge, but it looks OK as far as I can see.

If you want people to join your Productions then put in a link where your note is.
