Create a Flash game like Metro Siberia Underground – Part 3

Read all posts about "" game

Multipart tutorial: available parts 1, 2, 3, 4 ,5

In the 3rd part I’ll leave the tunnel for a future use and I will introduce some “asteroids”, some “fuel tanks” and the distance traveled so far.

I suggest to read part 1 and 2 before reading this one

It’s not a line-by-line commented tutorial, I am just sharing the source code at the moment, a full explication will come soon

* edit: full explication available

	if ((this._y>400) or (this._y<0) or deadly_movie.hitTest(this._x+28*Math.cos(angle), this._y+28*Math.sin(angle), true) or deadly_movie.hitTest(this._x+8*Math.cos(angle+Math.PI/2), this._y+8*Math.sin(angle+Math.PI/2), true) or deadly_movie.hitTest(this._x+8*Math.cos(angle-Math.PI/2), this._y+8*Math.sin(angle-Math.PI/2), true)) {

_root.onMouseDown = function() {

	smoke_interval = 10;

_root.onMouseUp = function() {

};

And this is the result. White blocks are deadly while blue circles raise your fuel.
