Learn how to create a Flash game, step by step! Every line of code is explained so when this tutorial is over you've got the knowledge to create a complete game.

Please note that I always recommend buying a book for full instructions on Flash - this is merely a good start.

Great tutorial :P

I have a question though
I tried to follow the tutorial and then start adding things myself (I don't know anything really, just what the tutorial taught me / trial & error) 
One thing that has frustrated me is making an animation for the enemies dying. 

I tried to use a similar code of the AttachMovie(bullet) to create a movieclip of the enemy dying when the bullet hit it, but it would just disappear without adding the animation. I tried a Gotoandplay way..the animation would work but it would keep moving.

Do you have a method for that? :C

This is pretty good, but I'm having some problems with the score.. It doesn't change when I shoot the aliens, and when I get hit once the lives go from 0 to nothing.. The number just disappears

So... I'm hearing I'd be better off using ActionScript 3 since I'm a beginner. Can the same coding demonstrated in the tutorial be used in AS3?

I'm trying to make a large "Mario-style" game, with basic levels and boss battles; stuff like that.

hi i was wondering do you think you could message me about how to make something like upgrades/powers that change the bullet amount or speed and maybe like 2 other enemy types that will randomly appear with the other enemy you showed? this would help alot!

I have a problem. :( I use Flash Professional CS6 and I get everything right until it says in your tutorial "select the spaceship movieclip and hit F9 to open the code panel, then replace the whole code with:"
As soon as I do that, I can't even move my spaceship, and even when I press Ctrl+z, nothing happens...
I'm totally new to flash, so sorry if it's a really stupid mistake.

Hm, that doesn't sound like anything I've encountered before. Flash can be a bit wonky at times though, try creating a completely new document.

I have tried it 3 times, but I will get a book about Flash, and maybe I'll find the solution there. If not, I'll just try it again and ask you then ;)
Thanks for the tutorial though!
