This tutorial should be fairly simple and self explanatory for all the experienced Flash users out there. If you're not one of them you can still learn alot from this tutorial, so read it and download the files.

In this tutorial you will learn how to construct a simple movie in which you will have a sprite that moves up, down, left, and right. Hopefully I will post more tutorials that teach you how to make different components, procedures, and actions that today's games all have.

Movement is the most important component in a game because that is essentially how you get around the world found in an rpg or top-view game (whatever you want to call it). The code I used to move the sprite around is just one of many different ways to make a sprite move.

If you're familiar with programming you should know this, and if you don't, well there you go. The method I used is personally my favorite because the code is all on one frame (which is how it should be), but if you know about OOP and .as files then you know that its best to put the code in Class files or something like that. Anyways, lets move away from this boring introduction and lets get started.

» 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.
