energy = 100
_root.createEmptyMovieClip("world", 10)
_root.attachMovie("character", "char", 2000)
_root.attachMovie("energy", "energyClip", 3000)
_root.attachMovie("bullet", "myBullet", 4000)
_root.attachMovie("helper", "helperClip", 5000)
_root.attachMovie("currentPower", "currentPowerClip", 6000)
_root.attachMovie("powerTimer", "powerUpClip", 7000)
helperClip._y = 175
helperClip._visible = false
myBullet._visible = false
currentPowerClip._x = 250
powerUpClip._x = 300
char.oX = 200
char.oY = 175

OK, that's alot of code! Basically, we just set a variable called energy, then we create a movie clip called world. Then we attach alot of movies(the character, the energy, the bullet, etc.) Then we remove a movie clip called gameOverClip. We do this because in the source file, i created a frame called gameOver, that attaches a movie clip called gameOver. The problem with attaching a movie clip is that it doesn't remove itself automatically. You have to remove it at the frame the timeline goes to after the frame where the movie clip is attached. OK, now let's look at the rest of thge code. Basically we just set alot of properties and then we set two variables that we can use to set the character's x and y positions back to where they used to be. Now that we've set all the variables, let's make the function that loads each level.

» 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.
