A new Flash game prototype

I played some times ago a game similar to the one I am making the prototype… I think it was a PopCap game, or a game by another casual game developer… anyway it’s a game involving a balance and some spheres.

Just a quick, raw actionscript

field = new Array();
for (x=0; x<10; x++) {
	field[x] = new Array();
	for (y=0; y<6; y++) {
		field[x][y] = 0;
	}
}
attach_sphere = true;
_root.attachMovie("bar", "bar", _root.getNextHighestDepth(), {_x:250, _y:400});
_root.attachMovie("triangle", "triangle", _root.getNextHighestDepth(), {_x:250, _y:400});
_root.onEnterFrame = function() {
	if (attach_sphere) {
		attach_sphere = false;
		sphere = bar.attachMovie("ball", "ball"+bar.getNextHighestDepth(), bar.getNextHighestDepth(), {_x:20,_y:-300});
		sphere.moving = true;
		sphere.onEnterFrame = function() {
			if (this.moving) {
				pos_x = Math.floor(bar._xmouse/40)+5;
				if (pos_x<0) {
					pos_x = 0;
				}
				if (pos_x>9) {
					pos_x = 9;
				}
				this._x = pos_x*40-180;
			}
			if (this.falling) {
				this._y += 20;
				pos_y = Math.floor((this._y+20)/40);
				if ((pos_y == 0)or(field[pos_x][pos_y*(-1)-1]==1)) {
					this.falling = false;
					field[pos_x][pos_y*(-1)] = 1;
					attach_sphere = true;
				}
			}
		};
	}
};
bar.onEnterFrame = function() {
	dir = 0;
	for (x=0; x<10; x++) {
		for (y=0; y<6; y++) {
			if (field[x][y]>0) {
				if (x<5) {
					dir -= (5-x);
				} else {
					dir += (x-4);
				}
			}
		}
	}
	dir *= 0.01;
	this._rotation += dir;
};
_root.onMouseDown = function() {
	if (sphere.moving) {
		sphere.moving = false;
		sphere.falling = true;
	}
};

and the result
