Create Sling Shot Games with ActionScript 3

This online tutorial series covers every step in programming a sling shot game. Use the mouse (or touch input) to pull down an object into the sling shot and launch it over an obstacle toward a target. After programming the example above, we also look at including code to use with a mobile device’s accelerometer (tested on the Android™ & iPhone® OSs). Once you’ve worked through this series, you should be able to add more levels, add multiple targets, add extra collision objects (like the scout character), as well as change the physics to make the slingshot more bouncy or increase the gravity.
