Flash prototype of a game like Balloon Invasion

Emanuele Feronato Flash, Game design

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 :)

From null to full HTML5 cross platform game

I will take you by hand from the bare bones of JavaScript programming through the creation of a full cross platform HTML5 game, with detailed explainations and source code.

If you don't know where to start, then From null to full HTML5 cross platform game is the book for you.
