Default [AS3] need a Side Scroller Space Shooter tutorial

I want to create a very basic, very simple 2D Space Shooter game by Flash AC3 for my assignment

it will be very simple.
- just an aircraft looking right. and able to fire bullet to the right side.
-randomly generated enemies (all the same image) coming from left to right.
- aircraft and bullet collisions
- an ingame score
- start menu (just a Button which says START, before game starts)

is there any tutorial which I may follow ? (must be in AS3)

thank you.

yes exactly like that !!!

my programming level is zero

I had 3 months of flash classes (once a week), and I couldn't learn enough.
my progession is 3D modeling, but I have a Flash AS lesson as a part of my game design college.

I'm learning very slowly, because I had no coding experience before.
but I believe, eventually I will learn one day, sooner or later.

for now, I need a good tutorial to learn a game like that from skrach.
I will rewrite everything and I will change graphics.
and, I will play with values to see their effects.
and all of those will help me to learn more.

that game which you send is an excellent example of what I'm looking for.

Thank you.

I searched that book all over Toronto, but couldn't find it.
Hopefully, my friend lend his copy to me during my projects.

there are 3 games which may help me for my assignment.

still I really would like to find a game tutorial similar to "Star Raider V3"
because I can prepare very nice rendered 3D graphics for that game and make it a very beatiful game.

but anyway, now I have a source, and If I fail to find a horizontal space shooter tutorial, I can still make one of the ones described in the book.

thank you for your help.

ohh. so that Star Raider is you game.
excellent work.

I hope I will be able to so something like that, even half quality of it may be enough for me.

last 3 night I searched a lot of forums and tutorial databases.
I found vertical figher tutorials and astroids style game tutorials.

if I can understand to flip y exis to x axis maybe I can write my codes to move the ship horizontally instead of vertically.

if I can not. I will do the Air Raid I game for my assignment.

thank you.
