I’m still plugging away with the games. I’ve taken a detour to learn how to create games with Flash. I’m reading ActionScript 3.0 Game Programming University by Gary Rosenzweig. I just created my first game – a memory/matching game – just like the first game in my other game programming book. My biggest issue with Flash games has been learning the Flash tool and understanding how what I create in Flash relates to what I program in ActionScript. For example, you can create a Symbol/Movie Clip in Flash which you can then use in your ActionScript. Sometimes I can get the Movie Clip setup correctly and then be able to do something with it in my ActionScript. Then sometimes I can’t, and I’m not sure what I have or haven’t done. Since I’ve been able to successfully create a game, I’m assuming with time the relationships will all become clear.
