Hi All,

I am trying to do a Space Invaders game with my Cert 2 MM students. I have a single alien movieclip that moves across the screen and a bullet movieclip that moves up to the alien. 

I have the hittest code that I am unsuccessfully trying below:

This is in the Bullet MovieClip

if(_root.alien, hitTest(_root.bullet)){
		trace("in hittest");

The two movieclips collide and I get the trace appearing which means the hittest is successful. I have the bullet remove itself with the line : this.removeMovieClip();  My problem is removing the alien movieclip when the hittest is successful.

Could someone please point a novice in the right direction?

Many Thanks,

John Edwards
