-- FLASH PLAYER 9 REQUIRED --
If the screen is blinking and saying it's Loading and Paused, that means your browser can't run AS3 and that YOU ARE NOT USING FLASH PLAYER 9. GO GET IT.


Pressing any key will pause/unpause the game
Right-click / Control-click to bring up the context menu for more commands

In addition, when you "rub" the ball, it's actually finding the angle between the mouse and the center of the orb and measuring the change in that, so tiny circles around the center works well (as does "scribbling"). Also, you can charge while the bolt is sailing, so do that.

This is firstly a test for me to code in Actionscript 3, and secondly a mini game, so don't expect like, a full blown set of stuff like options and story and a way to beat the game.

Anyhow, here's the backstory:
Abby Scratch the Third is rummaging through her grandmother's possessions in search of tic tacs when she comes across a crystal ball. She discovers that not only can it open a gate to the netherworld, but more excitingly, it can spark! Putting two and two together, she decides to electrocute ghosts. Naturally.

Okay, so that's it. The point of the game is to rack up as many points as you can before her grandmother realizes what's happening. Bigger ghosts mean more points, but also bigger penalty for letting them by - eventually some'll be instant death for you.

Oh yeah, and not mentioned in the instructions: The alert will slowly drop at a constant rate, the orb will automatically charge itself if it drops below the needed charge for one shot, and a bolt that's been sailing longer will gain a boost in its explosive power. Rubbing left and right will give you better charge than up and down. The dog's name is Charleston.

So, after this experience, some of you aspiring programmers might be asking, "So, what are your thoughts on AS3?" to which I might reply, "It a bitch."

Well, enjoy. Sound effects were made from whistling, snapping, and clapping. Completed in 3 days.

Made in Flash

EDIT: Made the beginning easier and the latter portion harder. They should come at you faster and with more life now. Around 10000 points or so you should notice your charge will start to increase on its own, though slightly. At this point I figure your hand will tire, so I'll help you out a little.
EDIT2: Fixed a line of code so that the enemy will actually have that boosted life I mentioned earlier. Now it won't be possible to play forever.
EDIT3: Added difficulty levels and the option to mute the sounds from the context menu (that is, right click menu)
EDIT4: Fixed the problem where ghosts congregate at the left.

It's fun how much time people spent on this. I must say, this is a fun little game; never would have thought to use static electricity or whatever it is on ghosts.

186060 - easy
for 42:10 minutes.

How 'bout that. I even went away sometimes to put on music on youtube, and still managed to let none through till about after 20 min. Which was mostly because I forgot a while I was playing a game, and the alert was on half, screen filled with them ghosties.

'Tis a fun game ^^

I lasted for 8 minutes, got 13,800 score, then had about 10 huge ones and an endless stream of the fast small ones.
My alert level went dropped like a stone.
