Dude don't be afraid to ask questions. I'm an IT student so you'd expect me to be able to code and do some amazing programming stuff, but the truth of the matter is I don't know it all. I never understood Java until this semester in my university (which is like 2 - 3 years late).
There are no dumb questions (unless you go into a programming forum and ask them what is the square root of carrots - that's a whole different level). I'm not even that good at HaxeFlixel yet (just picked the language up a week ago) and already I asked what I consider a basic question if your a HaxeFlixel pro.
tl:dr - Don't be afraid to ask questions, it's what keeps us learning. I suggest experimenting
EDIT: By experimenting, I mean try to think of the simplest game concept (like moving from x to y) then build up from there.
