If you want to start making flash games but do not know how to, this is the article for you. This is a short article with guidelines to help you on the process on making a game.
First of all you need to have the right software, which is Adobe Flash. It does cost quite a lot but it worth every penny if you know how to maximize it to its full extent. Once you have that, you are ready!
You now need to get used the program so play around on it for a bit. Now, comes a hard bit for people with less creativity, planning the game. First you need a storyline for it something brief like: a boy has to rescue princess from evil villain. Then, draw the characters out on a piece of paper and background for the game. After that, draw them on Flash and add colors, make them look how you want them to.
This is the most challenging part of making the game, the code! Code is called actionscript in Flash. To learn code and other stuff, go on websites like Flashkit, which has many tutorials on how to make sure games, coding, drawing etc. Also, my website has some tutorials on specific areas of flash such as buttons, so check that out. For beginners, this could take very long, do not get disheartened, just keep trying and do not give up and once you finish this, you will feel ecstatic.
After this, you have pretty much made your game, all you need now is menu, which is basically a play button, links to other places if you want to put them in and credits. Now, just distribute and let people play your game.
