C.Add and substracte a number

Okay, it's relatively simple to add and substract to a variable, simply add this code to it :

on (press) {
the variable -10

This explains itself, if you press a button to purchase an item, you will lose 10 of the variable called money, now, let's change that :

on (press) {
the variable -10
the text box that will display the money you spend = You have spent 10 on a product

Which makes a text box display the money you spent and writes that you spent money, now this is the script for lifes :

onClipEvent (enterframe) {
life variable -1

Which makes that if you enter a certain frame, you will lose 1 life.
Next we are talking about terrain limits so the character can't go out of the screen (which is 100% possible)

» 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.
