this.onMouseDown = function(){
	for(a=1; a<=myArray.length; ++a){
		movieToCheck = myArray[a-1]
		if(this[movieToCheck].hitTest(_xmouse, _ymouse, true)){
			character = movieToCheck

First we set it so that something happens when you click the mouse. Then we make a loop that happens for as many times as myArray.length, of course then we have to do something inside the for loop. The next line of code sets a variable called movieToCheck, which is equal to the same thing as movieToAttach, but we're doing something different this time. Then we check for a collision with the mouse. If the mouse collides, then we set a variable called character that we bring into the game frame. Then, we go to the game frame. Let's look at the game frame!

» 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.
