[FLASH] My first flash
« on: February 21, 2009 »

This is my first attempt at AS3, and so far I really like the language.  It's fairly forgiving of newbie mistakes, and there are lots of tutorials on how to get started.

The development cost is zero, as I'm using FlashDevelop and the flex sdk.

The particle engine is nearly complete, but I'm not sure what type of game I'll make yet.  Idea's are welcome.

As far as flash games are concerned, I think simplicity of controls plays a big part in their success.  Mouse movement and left click, plus maybe a space bar thrown in now and again.

What do you think?

That's very good, Voltage.
Runs smooth here - and looks very good.

About the controls I totally agree with you. Since most of the
flash games are casual games - they have to be easy to under-
stand and easy to play.

I also use the free flex SDK and FlashDevelop and can really
recommend this for the first steps!

Keep it up!

I was thinking of making a toxic waste management game once.

Your particles could be the toxic waste, which leaks out if the landscape is modified in the style of Lemmings or Worms.

If it touches the innocent inhabitants of the game world, you lose points.

Great demo - I'm getting a solid 60 fps here.
