If you are accustomed with the Internet, Flash games need no introduction. Flash games are interactive media created for online and mobile applications. Flash development has revolutionized the way people develop websites, adding gloss to them. Ranging from small interactive applications to web design, 2D side-scrollers, and puzzle games, Flash developers have done it all over the years.

Adobe Flash (earlier known as Macromedia Flash) is one of the favourite tools for web developers as well as game developers for the development of interactive applications. However, there are few things that separate a good Flash game from an ordinary one. In this article, we shall discuss the important points that a Flash developer should keep in mind while developing games.

Tips for Good Flash Development

Plan Hard Good developers need to be great planners as well. You need to create the game in your mind even before you have made the first click on your mouse. Even a small puzzle game written in Flash is likely to include several main screens or game states, audio files, graphical elements, and action scripts. In Flash development, it isnt uncommon to start with a pen and paper than with a keyboard and mouse.

Design Graphic Elements - Catchy graphics always attract users and so, it is important that the graphics for your Flash Games be designed well. You can create basic graphics within Flash itself or import graphic elements designed in Adobe Photoshop, Corel Draw or any other graphic designing and editing software.

Code Well Once your graphic elements are ready, the next step and the most important one is coding. In this stage, you write the codes to make the game functional. Adobe ActionScript comes in handy while coding and one should proficiently use it. Instead of testing the game on actual graphics, one can opt to use the graphics holder at this stage.

Add Graphics and Audio Once you are sure with the functionality of the game, it is time for you to add graphics and audio to the flash games. Be careful with the integration of graphics and see if every element functions according to the scripts. Check if all the buttons and other interactive elements work accordingly. As far as the audio is concerned, ensure that the background audio blends well with the game and audio clips following the cue from the scripts.

Final Touches In Flash, add the game introduction and end of level screen, at the end. Most Flash developers add credits to their games at this stage. It is also advisable to get this game tested by another developer to ensure its proper functionality.

One of the best means to get Flash games developed is to outsource these to offshore development centers. This guarantees highly functional games built by expert developers at highly competitive prices.
