Yup it's kinda 3D ain't it
For all of you out there who know actionscript, maybe I should explain a bit about how i made it. All the stuff on the island is actually inside the rotating surface symbol, but then I've made it so that they always get the negative rotation and height relative to the outer symbol. And then there's some local to global to get their actual y positions to give them the right depths. And then of course there's other stuff too, but anyway, hope you like it.
