So now we have instances of the ball and box movieclips placed in the appropriate locations on screen. Next let's start adding the code to make them move.

for (i in ballsOnScreen) {   				
	this[ballsOnScreen[i]]._y += 7;     		
	if(this[ballsOnScreen[i]]._y > 400) {  		
		ballsOnScreen.splice(i, 1);   		

Code Explanation loop cycles through the ballsOnScreen array, each ball instance in the array is moved 7 pixels down the y coordinate. Then an if statement checks to see if any of the ball instances have gone off the screen, and removes instances that have by removeMovieClip(), and we also remove that instance name from the ballsOnScreen array so it is kept up to date one what ball instances are currently on screen.

The flash's horizontal road drive was done in CS4 and was upgraded to CS6. The car responds to right/ left key and flash will auto-generate the movement of roads from left-right or right-left based on random number. Have fun driving in this virtual environment and avoid other cars... :) If you are creative, a road driving game can be created from it.
