I am trying to write a small game based on the Laser Game tutorial and using hitTest().
There can be any number of instances existing for the 'bullet' and also for the 'target'. Therefore, hard coding the testing by bullet1, bullet2 .... bulletn would be impossible. So, I need to detect a hit from any instance of a MovieClip... is this possible?
My alternative is to keep track of names of all existing instances of each and write a function that constantly loops through each target and hitTests on each exisitng bullet... this would be damned slow
Thanks in advance
