Beginning ActionScript - Project Booklet

Technical Tutorial Published 6/8/12 Last updated on 5/16/18
This is the tenth and final tutorial in the Beginning ActionScript series. It takes through the whole process of producing a Space Invaders game. Unfortunately the FLA files can't be uploaded here, but they are available on the website: - The website also includes a full set of video tutorials, lesson plan, mark sheet, starter, homework and sample files. All the work has been tested with students aged 11-18 although as the age goes down the amount of support you will need to give increases.

The A5 Booklet provided here is in Black & White as the full colour high resolution one (Of which the first page JPG has been uploaded as the image) is too large. They can be printed though... see the website for more details.

This is a great resource. Thank you.

I did notice that the swf videos on the Wissp website link don't have sound

WOW!! Thank you so much. I thought about using this for my Digital Arts and Animation class, but think instead I will use it as a final project for my computer programmers. This Action Script lesson will tie it all together for them. Thank you again...I have referenced you in my links page of the Digital Arts and Animation classroom website If you find any lessons you want, feel free to use them. Lynn Burleigh
