Welcome to Building a Platform Game Part1!

By the end of these 3 tutorials you will have a basic understanding of hittest, and hopefully the beginning to your game!

I expect you to have some form of understanding of flash, but I will try to make it as basic as possible. Also I’d like to say sorry for the format of my last 3 tutorials- I wasn’t used to the system.

Now, you have several choices: 1) To use the one provided in the .zip file provided 2) Draw a circle 3) Have a really silly looking guy…(I’ll explain now) Unfortunately, I don’t have a simple script to make a character jump, so it will float!

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
