This is something i made in just an hour or two out of boredom. It's part 1 of 3 of a series of tutorials teaching the readers how to make a simple space shooter. This is a very basic tutorial, so you won't find too much advanced stuff here. However, an advanced gaming tutorial may be on the way if people seem to like my tutorials. Sorry if i wasn't very specific, i made the biggest chunk of this at 3am. Thanks for viewing!



I think it was a good tutorial that explained things well. But the only problem is, people arent going to wait for you to post 3 parts on newgrounds. I can do a google search for:
"Flash: Space shooter tutorial" and a tutorial will pop up right away, all the parts there (no waiting for part 2, 3, etc.) and i can download the fla file or just follow the tutorial.
Based on the content of your tutorial though, i think it was a higher standard than one you would find from google.

Good luck finding a tutorial that actually explains the code your using on google, friend. Thanks for the comment though.

Very good

It was simple, useful, and it explained the script, which is pretty much all that most people look for in a tutorial, but a few other features would be nice for a later one like if you explained crosshairs to follow the mouse, and fully automatic shooting as well as multiple guns if you already know it yourself. Good luck with your future tutorials and other submissions.

Genocide responds:

All of this will be covered in part 3, which will be misc information.

I donĀ“t know any other AS comand, and i would like to learn some of them, could you PM me with some codes or send me a page where i can find them?

Thanks a lot, great tutorial ^^

Genocide responds:

http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/2 29808/9999 is a good place to start learning AS


Awesome man, a tutorial I can actually understand for a change. This would be great for classic shooter games. Thanks man, I will defiantly use this in the future. Also, I'm recommending this to the tutorial collection.

All in all, excellent job. Keep it up man :)
