This function will load our level once a level is beaten. First, we set the world’s x position to zero. We do this because in this game, the world’s position is constantly changing. Next, we remove all the old movie clips so we can bring in the new ones. Next, we increase the level and change the levelName. We then make sure that everything is back to normal. We also set inPlay to false and make the readyClip play(the movie clip that says READY, SET, GO!) Then, we loop through all the new clips that we need to create, and we attach a movie depending on the type it was given in the makeLevel function. Note that we will use numbers instead of words to attach the movies. We use the clipArray to figure out what clip the number means. Then we set it’s positions to the positions we gave it in the makeLevel function, and we set a variable called type that is also a number, which makes it easier to tell what type it is, without having to go back to the levels object all over again! On the next page, we will check for key presses.

I love making flash games but it's really annoying when Flash doesn't work!

» 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.
