I'm not sure how I did it, but when using mouse controls on the first time you see the circle things, I got hit (on the side, if it matters) and then I became invincible. I see the 'ship exploding' animation repeat, but I can still shoot, get upgrades, get points, etc... as normal. So maybe find a way to fix that?
Due to that glitch/bug thing, I made it to about 125,000 before quiting (around 25,000 of that was acquired while typing the first part).
I understand how you think you can upload it as it's not already here, but the original developer may not want it here. One example is with Kongregate. You get extra % revenue to have it solely on Kongregate, so developers may not upload it to other sites.
The only way you would legally be allowed to upload it is with prior permission from the developer, and you'd have to add that in the game.
I've already done the other tutorials and I'm about 3/4 through this one. I looked at how #8 will look when I'm done and it looks like there will be a lot of work in that one. This is the first set of tutorials that has helped me learn AS3 without quiting.
