Pretty easy, we're going to do the same thing for the boxesOnScreen array, but we'll also add our collision detection to this for loop.

for (j in boxesOnScreen) {				
	this[boxesOnScreen[j]]._y -= 7;
	if(this[boxesOnScreen[j]]._y < 0) {
		boxesOnScreen.splice(j, 1);

	for(k in ballsOnScreen) {			
		if (this[boxesOnScreen[j]].hitTest(this[ballsOnScreen[k]])) {	
			boxesOnScreen.splice(j, 1);
			ballsOnScreen.splice(k, 1);

Code Explanation

Up to the second for..loop everything is the same as the last code snippet that made the ball move, here we are just making the box move and checking if it has gone off the screen. In the second for..loop we'll run our hitTests between each box instance in the boxesOnScreen array and each ball instance in the ballsOnScreen array. If any of the instances collide we remove that instance using removeMovieClip, and we update the arrays.

» 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.
