Flash Tutorial #2 – The Basics of Actionscript 3.0

Hey there. I just finished up another tutorial about the basics of Actionscript 3.0 (AS3). The video is about 36 minutes long and covers a wide range of topics, including: variables, conditionals, operators, functions, events, and other general basic ideas in Actionscript 3.0 (and many other languages). By the way, I talk about all those pretty much in that order, slipping in little bits of data about other things as I progress through the video.

I also finally got around to submitting SpaceFlyer online, so the project page is now updated with a playable link to the game, or you can click here. I’ll be straight about this game, it isn’t really pretty, and it doesn’t exactly have a great story line, BUT there are some sweet mechanics!

Hope you enjoy them both
