Building Great Flash MX Games 2.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.

I got this book for advanced students in my multimedia class. The students had the basics of action script down and were looking for something fun to do. Two of the games they tried in the book did not work even though they followed the instructions to the letter. Some of the steps and or scripts were missing and it was confusing to follow.
