There’s been quite some time since my last collection of flash related links, and I’ve got some good ones for you.

Badim wrote an article for MochiLand on his way of developing flash games, but it was soon taken down from their site due to anger over copyright infringement tactics mentioned in the article. He tries to make it right in this article about copyrights.

CheezeWorld is back and posting again with their Bitmap Animation API and article on Finite State Machines. This guy really knows his code.

Emanuele Feronoto has been teaching us how to create a Flash Artillery Game in Box2d and how to use flixel. I don’t know how he finds time to publish all these great tutorials.

Freelance Flash Games has created some excellent articles on rewarding players, doing cutscenes, and different enemy types for your games. In my professional opinion, they’re some of the best posts on this list ;)

Joseph Burchett, besides tweeting all the new and best flash links on twitter, has some great articles on technical debt in game development and his gaming habits. Go give his blog a look.

LostGarden published his second flash love letter. Words cannot describe the greatness, as this is a must read.

PhotonStorm has been keeping updated on the latest flash tools, and reviewed a 3d pixel art creator and a nifty sound package/mixer called FlodPro. I’m not quite sure how to describe it, so I’ll have to let you check it out for yourself. It even has teh codes; source codes at least ;)

IqAndreas wrote up a good post on using tweening functions. Move your movieclips around the stage with ease.

Prince Porter has some great motivation for you lazy game developers and has  new series on becoming a game developer and part 2. So keep playing, designing, coding, and developing games and you’ll be well on your way to becoming a great game developer. Oh, and try to stay away from the police, they can really take away from your precious development time.

Trent Pollack finished his new game Magnetic Butterfly and released it from it’s virtual cocoon.
