Build a Canabalt-Style Infinite Runner From Scratch

Read Time:1 minLanguages:

With this screencast tutorial, you'll create an infinitely scrolling, Canabalt-style platformer, from start to finish. The final game has randomly generated levels, player movement, death conditions and basic scoring. No previous programming or game development experience is required and graphics are provided for you, so all you need is a copy of Multimedia Fusion 2 (which has a free demo).

Note: Although this tutorial is aimed at beginners using MMF2, you should still find it useful if you're a more experienced game developer using another platform; you can take the basic process and techniques and apply them to your own toolset.
