Flash prototype of a game like Balloon Invasion

One of the latest successful games released last week was Balloon Invasion.

Balloon Invasion

It’s a mix between an artillery and a defense game, with a World War II theme.

I made a little prototype of the game, that will be explained another day. It’s nothing so interesting, just a mix between Create a flash artillery game and Managing multiple collision detection with Flash tutorials.

That’s the good point when you write a lot of code: the more you write, the more you can recycle.

The main difference however is the firing system: enemies don’t get hurt by bullets but mby explosions bullets make when they come to the spot you fired on… just like “real” artillery

And here’s the result:

Download the source code and start cloning the game :)

    […] time to show you how can you do this. In this example, I will start from the Flash prototype of a game like Balloon Invasion example but obviously you can apply the same concept to whatever game you […]
