Breaking Down the Screaming Maze Trick
You’ve probably been pranked by those Flash games that test your coordination by forcing you to spend tedious minutes inching your way through a corkscrewing maze, only to suddenly scare the pants off of you by erupting into loud screaming and grotesque imagery when you’re just pixels away from the finish line.

I’m probably going to regret this, but I’m going to teach you how to set this trick up yourself. It’s actually quite simple, and can be accomplished with only four frames in one scene.

The first frame is going to be an introductory frame; just throw up a title, whatever graphics you want, and the instructions. Make sure to include something to click to start the game, like my Play button in the lower left corner.
