Description: Learn how to write a space shooter game by dissecting the fla

This is a script for a basic overhead space shooter game. At the moment there is no sound and only 2 levels. There is a boss at the end of each level. The ship moves using the direction keys and fires using the ctrl key. There are powerups which give an extra life and one which gives a trishot. There are enemies that fire lazers, enemies that fire trishot lazers, enemies that fire at the player's ship, and enemies that zigzag. There is a boss that has multiple segments like a centipede which has multiple hit areas. The first segment is a head. If a segment which is not the head is destroyed, the next segment becomes a head and breaks off as its own centipede. Stars move in the background. A score is kept and each enemy gives different points when shot. The source fla is well documented with line by line comments. Download it below:
