[AS1] Tiered Scoring System For Flash Game
I am new here and I have a problem that I have been trying to fix for a good month or so now. I am not overly familiar with ActionScript but I have an average understanding of how it all works. Anyway, here is my problem:
I have created a Flash game based on the kids learning game "Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check" using a quiz template provided by Flash, I don't know if anyone knows the game but what basically happens in the game is the user is given a word, audio plays the word, an animated hand covers it up, the user is then prompted to type in the word, they click a check answer button and that then tells them whether it is spelt correctly or not. This is where the problem occurs, at the current time, the student gets three goes at spelling the word correctly and what I want to do is have a scoring system so if the user gets the word right the first time they get 10 points, second time they get 5 points, third time they get 2 points and then if they get it wrong again the game proceeds onto the next word. Does anyone have any idea how I may be able to implement this kind of scoring system using ActionScript in Flash MX? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
