    There's the Newgrounds link, basically it's a platformer - kind of Mario style but a bit more vertical design on the levels.

    I know there are a few game designers/developers on here so I was wondering if there any tips from the programming side anyone had to improve the engine. I know there is occasionally a black screen, not sure why that happens but I have a feeling it's either to do with the ad code or the sound effects - either way I don't know how to fix it.

    So yeah, thanks for playing, give it a go and give me any crits either on here or Newgrounds.

    Looks pretty nice [​IMG]
    I once tried to make a platformer with AS, when I had it at school, but lost interest.

    It's not entirely AS, I'm not quite that brave to do everything through code - I'm half using Flash and half using AS.

    Ideally I'd run everything with code but it's a bit daunting. Maybe next time. It is a nice easy language though, I'd say it's a good beginner one.

    Stay away from AS if you wanna learn programming, it's a filthy language. [​IMG]

    Pretty good very end of level 4 is difficult. Sliding on the ice is almost instant death.

    The ice can be difficult, try and just land straight and you won't slip.

    Believe me - in some of the development builds it used to be a lot harder...
