Need help for Side Scroller in Flash ActionScript 3

Postby jzak » Tue Jun 29, 2010 11:24 pm

Hello everyone,

I'm looking to find some good tutorials in ActionScript 3 for Flash to code a side scroller game/platformer. I've been searching the internet and only found some out dated tutorials. I managed to get my character to move left and right with the arrow keys, which is a start considering I am new to coding. Someone from another forum suggested that I check out this forum. I'm not sure what Edward platform is but if it is pre-assembled code for a platformer / side scroller game then this artist can definitely use the help.

Here is a list of some actions I would like the game to be able to do:
Movement for the player with the arrow keys (Left, Right, Up for Jump & Down for Duck)
A key for sword attack
S key for throwing ninja stars
When the player moves the screen to scroll with parallax. (foreground elements move faster and background elements to move by slower.)
Enemies to cause damage/kill player
Player to cause damage/kill enemies
Health Meter to react to damage
Timer
Score board points for killing enemies, getting to the end of the level in best time.

Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

Here is a link to what I'm working on:

Wow, I found the Edward engine and launched myself much farther than I expected with the platformer! Thanks for the framework!
