ActionScript can perform a hit test operation to determine whether two objects have collided on the Stage. You can either test for an object hitting another object or an object hitting a point on the Stage. This functionality is used often in games to evaluate collision of players and obstacles.

This sample demonstrates a maze game where the player icon navigates through the maze pattern. Press the up, down, left, and right arrow keys on the keyboard to navigate to the finish line.
