Final Touches

A little bit of code is needed to put the finishing touches on your game. Click on the hit area button and, in every keyframe, add this code:

on(release) { score=score+1; }

This makes it so that when you click on the button area the score is incremented by one. Also, not done by this code, when you click on the button area the picture you drew for when he gets hit will appear, if you chose to do that. Next, in one of the final frames of the enemy movie clip, it doesn't matter which layer since they all end at the same frame, insert the following code:


This will send the movie clip back to frame 2 when it reaches the end. If you didn't have this it would go back to frame 1 and then set score to zero every time. Now all you need to do is drag the enemy movie clip onto the stage in its own layer and you're done! You will have an animated sprite moving around the screen and whenever you shoot him you get plus 1 to your score. Of course, you can make this very complex with more guys, levels, and a nice background, but I'll leave that up to you. Hope that you have found this tutorial helpful!

» 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.
