Im learning actionscript myself now and what you made here is something that someone like me can make with about 3 months of actionscript experience.
but simplicity does not have to be a problem for a game (look at pong it is still popular) but with a few changes this game can be much more fun.
so here is some advice:
1) the block you used as a character is a huge mistake. it looks retarded and the changing of the sqaure was anoying and distracting. next time use a normal square or a real character.
2) the game had only the black walls and the red triangles to make you die.
you could make lots of stuff that makes the game more interesting like floor that turns into a wall after you pass it (Im not gonna explain it in detail but basicly you have to make the floor detect when the player is on and as soon as the player no longer interacts with the floor make a child (of a regular wall) at the location of the floor and after that destroy the floor (remove child).
3) try to make a ending to a game instead of trying to anoy the player when he reaches the last level.
4) practice a lot
5) ask someone with more programming experience to look at your work before posting it. he or she might help you to point out some stuff that doenst feel good and might give you the propper code solution
good luck with future games and keep it up.
wow that needs work
you made a lot of misstakes that were quit uh... stupid.
first: when some one scores the ball just spawns randomly in the direction of the one scored against, no problem with that, but it goes to wide sometimes it goes to the uper limit or the lower limit. never do that because if your at the upper limit and it goes down you can't make it.
second: the point is given to early you should wait untill it is out of the field because sometime you still can hit it but the ball is destroyed and the other gets a point.
third: what the *bleep* the ball gets stuck for a while in my bat.
these and many more are the errors you have made.
work harder and more and ask others for advice and above all KEEP PRACTISING.
action script is hard (I know Im still practicing it) and this is nice affort but not worthy to post yet.
good luck in the future.
btw: most flash games are made in a single frame (games like pong don't need more) unless it has differnt levels those are made with a frame for each level.
this is a great help I always tought my drawing skills were hopeless until I found this. thanks a lot.
btw it has a great interface.
and the personal touch in tekst makes it feel nicer.
we need people like you in the industry
most gamers will agree with more that we need people like you guys in the gameindustry that was realy original (never saw the concept before).
but you should dish the pointless message in the game they were distracting.
funny but distracting.
keep up the great work
We, the people, ARE the industry now :D Viva La Casual Game Revolution!
