loadLevel()
setupPowers()
_root.onEnterFrame = function(){
	checkForKeys()
	checkForCollisions()
	checkPowerUps()
	checkGame()
	moveBaddys()
}

This code is very simple. First, we load the first level, then we set up the powers. Then, every frame we make it so that the game checks for key presses, collisions, powerUps and everything else. Then we move the baddys. Let's look at the gameOver frame.

_root.attachMovie("gameOver", "gameOverClip", 8000)
_root.onEnterFrame = null

This is REALLY simple. First we attach the gameOver movie clip, then we make it so that the movie doesn't check for anything anymore, so you see a still image on the screen. Finally, there is a button in the gameOver movie clip. Let's look at the script for that.

on(press){
	_root.gotoAndStop("game")
}

Again, the code is very simple. If you press the button, the timeline goes back to the game, and you start all over again! Now, open the swf in the download folder. Now that you understand the game, you can play it, and then make other games just like it! On the next page there are some helpful hints for making games like this one.
