Help Hammy: an interactive composition

I just finished making an interactive composition in Flash for my Computing in Design class entitled "Help Hammy." My concept was inspired by the Lucas Arts puzzle adventure games, in which a player explores and interacts with the environment in a spirit of playful discovery. "Help Hammy" was my first serious foray into Actionscript, which happily, has syntax very similar to Java. Learning how to animate in Flash was a bit trickier for me, and as you can see, artwork is not my specialty! However, I learned quite a bit in the process and hope you enjoy the result. original-sketch
