I've been putting together a new game and the prototype can be viewed here:

It's still really rough. Trust me, it will look better when it's done.

I've been wanting to post tutes as I learn more AS3 myself, but I have to admit that I still don't feel confident enough. Before AS3 came out, I thought I had mastered AS2, but AS3 is a real shock.

If anyone has no idea what I'm talking about, flash games are programmed in Actionscript 3. And it's a bugger for even the most simple things. The payoff should be better performance. I've always wanted to program a 'bullet hell' genre game, but AS2 couldn't handle it in terms of performance.

Back to Voxx, my new game. The original concept was to have a cross between a block puzzler and a shooter. That didn't quite work out, so it's going to be a good old-fashioned space shooter, top scrolling. Fun!
