Inverting Toony Flash game prototype turning it into a Christmas game

Emanuele Feronato Actionscript 3, Flash, Game design

With a few more than a month to Christmas, it’s time to think about a quick and easy Christmas game, since a lot of portals will distribute Christmas games in a couple of weeks.

Have a look to an old post called About season games to have an idea of what I am talking about.

So I want to share with you a simple prototype made out of Toony Flash game. Basically it’s the same game, but rather than moving targets to match falling stuff, we have to move falling stuff to match targets. Look:

Drag falling balls to match the balls on the Christmas tree.

There is still a lot to do on the gameplay, but maybe you can make some interesting stuff out of it.

This is the source code, no need to comment it as it’s almost the same thing you saw on Toony:

Download the source code and show me your games built upon this prototype.

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.

    Hi Emanuele!

    Congratulations on your great work and blog! I’m seriously interested in studying game development for real and your work really inspires me.

    For quite a long time I worked with Flash and ActionScript, even wrote some books on it and developed a course, etc. Now, with all these technology market changes, with Flash and ActionScript being considered as not so attractive anymore, how do you see future for these technologies. Do you think it is still a good idea, for beginners, to invest time and effort in studying or even developing for Flash Platform?

    I’d really appreciate if you could share any ideas on this subject with us.

    Thank you for your great work!

    Best Regards,

    Marcos, Brazil.
