Next block of code :

onClipEvent (enterFrame) { 
if (Key.isDown(Key.RIGHT)) {
this._x += moveSpeed;

This means that when you enter the frame, if the right key is holded down, it will add movespeed (3) to X, making it move to the right, because X is a imaginary vertical line on the left so adding to X will make something move to the right.
Next block of code :

} else if (Key.isDown(Key.UP)) { 
this._y -= moveSpeed;

This means that else if the up key is holded it will substracte movespeed (3) to Y which is another imaginary line, this time on the the top, so you go up.
next block :-) :

} else if (Key.isDown(Key.DOWN)) { 
this._y += moveSpeed;

If you are intelligent, you should undestand this means that you add to Y making the man go down.
Final block of code :

} else if (Key.isDown(Key.LEFT)) { 
this._x -= moveSpeed;

This means you substracte to X making the man go left... Next page is about Variables

» 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.
