This is a great tutorial showing Win Dink Edit in motion and how to script on the fly. I loved it.

Redink1 walks the viewer through how to do some mapping with tiles, then placing static sprites, and then sprites with scripts and shows you how to create bombs and blow up other rock sprites based on the graphic sequence/frames.

I loved how things didn't work all perfectly the first time and Redink1 goes and trouble shoots. Ah, this is so often what I have experienced, although I probably don't solve my own problems in such a speedy manner.

The pictures were very readable, the audio pretty good.

The only detraction I guess is that those first starting out might get a little lost as at times Redink moves pretty fast. But I still thought it was great.

Overall 9.0 out of 10.
