EDIT: DAILY 4TH!?!?!?! I LOVE YOU NEWGROUNDS :3 Tutorial collection too! Thanks Tom :D!
Wow. This took a while. You'll see what you mean when you see how much detail i've put into this and how many frames. My proudest work to date. This covers:

Movement
Gravity
Floors
Doors
Walls
Enemy AI
Attacks
Health And Items/Powerups.

Sorry about being weak in enemy AI, i'm not very smart in it :P. Right click for options, and enjoy - I put a lot of work into this :)

EDIT: Added Flash API - be sure to click the ad for me ;D. I like moneh :D.

EDIT 2: I flicked through a few reviews, some recent concerning the music. There is a right click menu with options to turn the music off, to let you know ;).

Won't work with Flash 8

Keep getting errors on the script! PLEASE HELP!



SWEET

Awsome tutorial m8!
I just started with flash and went on to platformers right away.
I have tried tons of tutorials, but this is the only one I rly stuck too,
it kept calling me back... was it the music? or just cuz its a good tutorial? :o

anyway, even though I do exactly what I'm told (even if I just copie it as in the start -> lazy bones here :o) I can't fix walls... I fixed my ground allrdy (although its not completely stable yet -inno... how do I fix That?! an unstable ground :o) but walls is just impossible... any idea what I'm doing wrong?



Fantastic

The code is very well explained and is very noob friendly.
My critisism is that the music stops after a minute or so, and the code looks somewhat messy compared to other platforming engines.

Then again platformers are very messy and you explained the basics.
All in all a very nice tutorial that i strongly recommend to anyone reading this.



best EVER

I created an account just to tell you how asome this is. And by the way this is the only tutorial i found on the internet that talked about using sprites how > I < needed to use them!!
