B. Hit test killing

so, to kill a man in the game, it's just as simply simple as simply simple can be, add this code to the enemy, which will be a a movieclip that continuously throws grenades, grenades that stay, so it souldn't be a loop, and give him the instance name of : enemy1 for example, so here is the script to add to the enemy :

if (this.bullet.hitTest(_this.enemy1)) {
    points + 100

Okay, the script is easy, if the bullet hits the man, the man goes to a frame inside himself called "die", which is something like... I don't know, use you imagination, make him jump backwards covered in blood !!!

» 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.
