Sniper game tutorial

Author Comments

I worked on this for about an hour, a considerably short time for a piece of flash. I did the good old sniper tutorial, but with ammo, hostages and zooming. Didn't do masking though, doesn't really work on my flash, or maybe I did it wrong. This assumes you have a basic knowledge of actionscript 2.0. This tutorial was developed for you by Wolfears2, was made in and is aimed at Flash MX 2004. Tried my best to make it understandable. Thanks to everyone who views and reviews =P.
EDIT: I had to change the .swf, the links to NG and my site weren't working. Sorry if anyone noticed.
Most likely I'm going to do another subject next time, but I MIGHT do another sniper tutorial on the very last details and things. I'd much rather do something like RPGs ore something more challenging, perhaps a racing thing.
EDIT2: I've fixed the watch again button and the cursor. After the example about halfway through, you couldn't see it.
This is being redone, the improved version will be added by saturday 31st October '09.

Kinda Helpful

I am not good at ActionScripting but this did helped on a sniper game. Well the death is not that good and O.o Bad Graphics!


thanks,i really need the action scripts for zooming in and out but after i made it big i can't return it to normal size and i don't know that number stuff(68,63,etc.)can you explain?i really need it

i will leave no critizes,if you want to know what i think about it just PM me


The way you approached the actionscripting was okay, as was the concept, however you really need to fully grasp the game engine before you make a tutorial. There was no sound, terrible death animation which needed a few more frames, difficult ammo system, and your artwork wasn't top notch.

However, it isn't too bad and much better then most I have seen. I suggest you could redo this, adding in a recoil animation the gun, upping your artwork, sounds, maybe add some level designs and take your time making the tutorial.

3/5, keep it up though!


This is awesome ive been looking for sumthing like this for two days and finally i find it good job dude but it you want to get higher ratings then you should make the characters look better.



It's not great. If you wanna see a proper engine download it from my site www.flashchaz.com , I got a sniper game fla there if anyone wants to download it :)
