Today we’ll go over how to program a flash game. The first thing you need to know is that adobe runs different than game programming. It is not a requirement to learn C# or C++ or even Java. However, it does use a variation of Java script with the 3rd reincarnation of Action script, which is adobe’s version of programming.
So if you want to program a flash game, you will have to learn Action Script. If you have any of the other programming knowledge like C#, C++, or Java, it could come in handy with this programming software. The action script is an enhanced super-set of the ECMAScript programming language.
If you’re looking to program a flash game, then you need to know coding. There are many sites that offer free courses on how to design a flash game, and how to code and how to program the games. Some of these sites include:
