    It seems like everything works, but you needed to move the AS3 Frame on 233 to 234 to have the actions affect the object (backBtn) its looking for. I would also change the backPressed function to the below:

    function backPressed(evt:MouseEvent): void

    If you are using the same backBtn, i would suggest creating a new layer for it, and using the same button for all three layers (credits, game, options).

    Also in frame 1, you don't need "stage.addChild(pointer);" you should delete that line, because the pointer is already on the stage, and once the backBtn worked it created duplicate pointers.
