Flash® Game Design

Flash® is a highly flexible tool and it's no secret that one of its most popular implementations is for making online games. As Flash® games span dozens of genres, from platform to puzzle, tower defense to strategy, and sniper to racing, creating Flash® games can be just as fun as playing them! Flash® has long been a driving force in the independent game developer community, as few other tools allow a solo developer (or a small team), to quickly create a game and then monetize it on the web. You know you've spent dozens of hours playing addicting Flash® games online -- now it is your turn to make the Flash® game of your dreams! What will it be?
