Game Design using Flash CS5

January 8, 2012 at 6:36 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

First week back was good.  I talked to the students about problem solving and its importance. I asked if they would like for me to sprinkle logic puzzles throughout the semester. The interest level was good.

Flash is a really good tool to introduce students to some serious scripting. The visual appeal is great and it has some simple scripting that introduces students to typing code.
With the course of course being a Game design course Flash as a programming tool fits in very well.

I asked students to follow a tutorial:

And design the game. As a next step I asked them to ask one new feature to the game.

The feature they add should satisfy two conditions:

  1. The feature should make some simple modifications to the script
  2. The feature should make use of a feature of Flash CS5 that has not been used before.
