    Adobe Flash (formerly called Macromedia Flash and Shockwave Flash) is a multimedia and software platform used for creatingvector graphics, animation, browser games, rich Internet applications, desktop applications, mobile applications and mobile games. Flash displays text, vector and raster graphics to provide animations, video games and applications. It allows streaming of audio and video, and can capture mouse, keyboard, microphone and camera input.
    Flash graphics and animation are designed using the Flash editor, and may be viewed by end-users using Flash Player (for web browsers), AIR (for desktop or mobile apps) or third-party players such as Scaleform GFx (for video games). Adobe Flash Playerenables end-users to view Flash content using web browsers, and is supported on Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. Adobe Flash Lite enabled viewing Flash content on older smartphones, but has been discontinued and superseded by Adobe AIR.
    The ActionScript programming language allows creation of interactive animations, video games, web applications, desktop applications and mobile applications. Flash software can be developed using an IDE such as Adobe Flash Professional, Adobe Flash Builder, FlashDevelop and Powerflasher FDT. Adobe AIR enables full-featured desktop and mobile applications to be developed with Flash, and published for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Google Android, and iOS.

    More on Game Developing

    Before you take your first baby steps into game development,here are some things that you need to know!

    Game development has grown exponentially over the last few years.Large gaming studios are building high budget AAA games while independent game developers are getting recognized for their unique concepts and designs

    *Decide on a game concept
    First choose what type of game you want to develop.Your choice can be like Puzzle games,Jumping games ,Sudoku or adventurous one.
    *Choose Your Game Development Programming Language.
    to start building language ,you might be wondering what the best language to write your game is..The answer is simple ,develop your game in the language you are most familiar with.Let it be Java,C#,C++,Action Script,HTML5 or Java Script.One of the powerful engine for 2D and 3D mobile game creation is Unity.Unity scripting supports C3 ,JavaScript and Boo for development on multiple platform. Its cross platform utility makes it possible to port games for non mobile platform as well.Unity also has Pro version with improvement like refined workflows ,publishing to future platform etc for larger  studios.both version are equally powerful for game development.
    Some of the powerful open source software is Haxe toolkit.It is a high level,strictly typed programming language that uses the Haze compiler to produce cross platform native code. Haxe is easy to adapt to if you familiar with Java ,C++,Action Script 3 or any such similar object oriented programming language.

    *Build The Prototype
    With the concept and tools decided,building a prototype becomes the next highest priority .A prototype is similar version of your idea which will help you test your game mechanics and fun factor.These will form the
    foundation for your game so getting it correct is very important.
    *Design The Game Art
    By the time you you reach the graphic designing stage,you will have a mental image of how you want you game to look  and feel.However there is a probability that not having art skills might make you feel that your game idea will be restricted visually.Some people may lack in art skills .But not having art skill should not stop you.There is a site called Open Game Art which has huge repository of game assets licensed under free licenses.there are also graphic marketplaces such as Game Dev  Market and Game art 2D..
    *Get Musical with Loops and Sound Effects
    Making music for games is much easier than it used to be. Music programs like Garage Band come free with the new Macs and has a complete sound library that includes software instruments,presets for guitar and voice ,and virtual session drummer.this makes it easy to record and create your own music.
