1. Designing Games
Write a basic description. Enter the features and what you want the player to accomplish. It’s great to have a baseline of what you want to do with your game in writing so you can see it while you’re working on it.
2. Images of some sketches.
Draw the basic design of the screen just the way you want it. It does not have to be so detailed, but you at least have an idea of where the various elements will be placed on the screen. This will be very useful later on when you start building the interface for your game.
3. Choose a method to create your game.
Initially, you need to learn the code for ActiopnScript3 to create Flash games. Although you can still do that, there are programs available that can make game creation easier to learn and do not require coding experience.
Some popular choices for creating games include:
1. Stencyl : This is a newer tool that lets you build games using object and logic scripts. This game can then be converted into a Flash project and uploaded to any website that supports Flash games.
2. Construct 2 : As Flash gets older, it has to start being replaced by other ways of making games. One of the latest ways to create online games is to use HTML5. Usually this requires a lot of coding knowledge, but Construct 2 lets you create games using objects and scripting, like Stencyl.
3. Flash Builder :This is a traditional method for creating Flash games. It requires quite a lot of ActionScript knowledge, but it is one of the easiest languages to learn. Flash Builder requires a fee, but you can use FlashDevelop open program to get many uses the same.
