 /*Basically only keyboard controls are handled in this code, paired with collision
   detection for each movement.*/
  //This code repeates for all for directions of movement.
  //Here you can see that the man and the mask always move together, whereas the big
  //labirynth instance moves in the opposite direction creating a movement effect 
  //combining both regular movement and terrain scrolling. the labirynth being twice 
  //bigger than the stage makes the movement constrained exactly within the stage, since 
  //the man moves twice faster due to this combination of effects.
  _root.man._x -= step;
  _root.mask._x -= step;
  _root.big_lab._x += step;
  //In the following loop, the code checks for collision between the man's mask and 
  //all the parts of the labirynths walls.
  for ( i = 2; i <= 95; i++)
    ok = false;
  //in case of collision the man is moved one step back
   _root.man._x += step;
   _root.mask._x += step;
   _root.big_lab._x -=step;
   ok = true;
  //Of course you should do the same for right, up and down movement by changing the 
  //_x or _y properties with corresponding values.

  //This part of the code moves the white mask which hides the lower labirynth instance
  //to avoid the confusing effect that you get by showing the walls of both labirynth
  _root.white_mask._x = _root.mask._x;
  _root.white_mask._y = _root.mask._y

» 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.
