The SWF File

In this tutorial you learn how to create scrolling terrain. The Game Gun you created in Weapon Manufacturing 101 is used as simply one more piece of terrain that can be scrolled. To understand this further have a look at the example below. It is important to note that the collisions are not enabled for this example.

All this was done in a 20K ".swf" file. The final game is much larger -- around 350K. That is only because of all the high quality graphics I introduced instead of flat colors for terrain and game pieces. I purposely got rid of all that so I could see just how small the code was at this point.

Wait 10 seconds for terrain scrolling to start...

» 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.
