I recently “finished” my first flash game as part of Kongregate.com’s new developer contest. They provided a tutorial and source code to make a simple side-scrolling shooter, and tasked interested parties in taking those guides, and using them to learn how to make a game. Since I’ve been wanting to learn flash for some time now, I jumped at the opportunity, and crafted a Space Invaders style game. There are a few features, as of this post, that I have not yet had time to incorporate, but hopefully I will be able to implement them before the deadline of the contest. As with most online contests of this natrue, it’s a popularity contest. The winners will be selected based on the highest user rating. So, if you play the game, and have a Kongregate account, feel free to rate my game, along with the other entrants. I hope you enjoy it, and let me know of any comments you have (or bugs you encounter). Hopefully, I will be able to create more games after this (though Flash is an expensive program) and be able to couple it eventually with my novel.
