Hello everyone, Names Brigadier and I've had the urge to start a flash game. I've seen several good ones and several terrible ones and I want to take a shot at this.

I am an excessive gamer and know what makes most games good but I don't know a thing about action script.

Using Ruby with RMXP was difficult for me and I can't make heads or tails of action script.

I'm looking for either :

A. A Mentor who can help me along the way with making a basic game or...

B. A very good Tutorial to help get me started...

At the moment all I have is 20 days left on Adobe Flash CS3 Trial and I would like to learn before I commit to buying any Flash Programs.

Any help is welcome, Thanks in advance to you kind souls who help the poor noob. :D

Newgrounds is good, but also FlashKit.com has some valuable resources.

I`d say 4 weeks of intensive training will get you making good games.As for a mentor well there are nice people out there but really if you want a mentor I doubt someone will waste a load of free time to do it without payment.
