Now, glitch free! Well, I dont know, email me if you spot any glitches. Next, actually decorating the game... There will probably be sections or “gaps” between your platforms. Why not add something there? Such as…hmmm I know, Spikes! It doesn’t have to be spikes, but for now let it be spikes. Give it the instance & MC of spikes. Now give the character the following script:

onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
	if (this.hitTest(_root.spikes)) {
		_root.health -= 1;
Now, create a dynamic text box and give it the variable of health. Also on a new layer called controls give it the frame script: health=100

Now, everything should work fine, Done!

If you want it so the character can’t run / float off screen then check out my tutorial on boundaries. If you want to go to a game over screen when your health = 0 then check out my tutorial on health. What do you mean that’s advertising? No it isn’t… To develop the game more, why don’t you add platforms that re-appear and disappear? It’s easy, just animate a platform so on it’s 50th frame you delete it and wait another 50 frames. I didn’t explain that well, but I have homework to do…Cya for now…
Happy Flash Making -Mike

» 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.
