Prototype of a Flash game like Poux – Part 3

November 28th update: Finished project released

3rd update of the prototype. Remember to read part 1 and 2

It’s beginning to become something like a complete one-day game… let me introduce what I did.

First, I added cute graphics… on zeus box you will find some cute free icons with a completely free license, no matter what are you doing with such icons. I downloaded a Christmas pack so now the game looks like a Christmas game. I called the game “Christmas Couples”.

Then I added a score system, a time bar, some animations when you click on the icons, increasing difficulty, an highscore system, a game over status and a green “X2” bonus bar acting like a 2X bonus if you remove an icon touching the bar.

Obviously, just in a few rows.

About the highscores, I used an ArmorBot account. Installing it is very easy and you can change almost everything in the highscore page. You can even add your own ad.

The page I made sucks a bit but it’s still under development… or maybe not… give it a look. At the moment you can only submit scores under the “triqui” name… but I am going to add a text field in the final version.

Anyway, let’s see the actionscript

and this is the game

At the moment, if you die you have to reload the page. That’s life… play and don’t forget to look at the highscores to see if your score was awesome or you’re just a rookie….

    Good job emanuele. And nice theme! ;)
    Of course it could be better. But anyway, you’re teaching us in a great way :D

  • Ed

    Did you just make it you couldn’t reset because you couldn’t be bothered to make a reset button and get rid of all the complicated annoying variables and duplicated MCs? :P

    Nice tut, and I came 37th (though make it we can submit our scores) :)

  • shiv1411

    hi emnauele,

    whats up?

    I was creating this game with multiple levels and when I published it, I saw one great bug. A player can simply roam through my levels just by right-clicking and then clicking play, he automatically advances to the next frame, or next level.

    Please tell me how can I solve this problem.

  • Ed

    shiv, have a look at this tutorial:

    Take a look at the customizable right click menu.

  • CGR
