Step 2.

Create a grid of lines covering the whole area of the stage and convert it to an MC. The grid is used to fill with a certain color the areas between the grids, which allows easy drawing of labirynth walls. Later you can just erase the lines, or put their alpha to 0. In order to make the walls convenient for collision detection, one should select separate sections constrained to rectangular shapes, or other wise colision detection won’t work properly since some of the white (non-wall) areas will be considered as walls by the algorithm. These separate shapes should be converted to symbols, and I’ve been naming all of the instances as “part1”, “part2”, “part3”, etc. so that I can loop through them easily by name reference.

» 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.
