I’ve received a request to teach how to make a health bar in actionscript 3. Health bars can be found in all sorts of games, so I decided not to confine it to a single tutorial series. Instead, I’ve made this the first of a new section of Mini-Lessons on this site, to cover miscellaneous small game mechanics which can be used in a variety of games.
This tutorial is heavily image-based :-)
Here’s the demo of what we are going to create in this tutorial.
Easy to make. Easy to customize.
Pretty cool, huh?
