    Hello!

    I've been killing myself trying to find an answer for way too long.

    I'm trying to create a simple side scrolling platform game.

    So, my question is, which direction should i go in? Tile based or art based?
    So far i have a jpg that extends far beyond the stage and if i wanted to make a real level then instead of having it 480x2000 i would need to make it more like 480x5000 at the least
    .


    Im interested in tile based but all the guides i've found are rather dated.

    if i could get some insight and maybe pointed in a good direction, i would be very grateful.

    below is a link to what i've made so far. its just to test code that i've learned not to impress anyone so dont hate!! :)
    Sprite Test.swf
    i cant upload the swf here so there it is.

    I don't think anyone is going to take the time to download the .swf file. If you want post a video on youtube. If not take a few screen shots and post them
