I am painfully new to actionscript and have been given an assignment to make my own flash game for college. The game is simple, move a duck through a maze without touching the lava. I got the duck to move and everything else to work but I've hit two snags I was wondering people can help with.
1) When it comes to collision, I can only find tuts that tell me when the collision happens. What I cant get to happen is when my first movieclip (the duck) comes into contact with another movieclip (the lava) the graphic changes from that of a duck to that of fire. I just don't know what to write!
2) Can you link from one flash movie to another? I want to make a splash screen with a play button to pop up when you start the application and when you hit play it will start the game. The only information on linking I've found online is linking from flash to a webpage. Would it be better to use another program?
3) A decent tutorial site for actionscript since I wasn't able to find the answer to any of my questions on my own :P
Thank you for your attention.
