Game Development – Part 1

Basic Movement

Students begin by learning how to use the x and y axis to move objects around on their stage with the keys of the keyboard. In the example below, pressing the left and right arrow keys will cause the character to walk left and right by adding and subtracting from his current position on the x axis. If it’s not working, please click on the stage first to activate the controls.
