Adobe Flash is a program used to create animated website content. It utilises a custom programming language called ActionScript. ActionScript is used to control animations and process user input such as keystrokes. These features allow games to be made that can be placed directly on websites without needing any downloads or installation files. Flash shooter games typically involve a first-person view with moving targets. Players are graded on their shooting performance such as accuracy and will often have weapon upgrades available.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open Adobe Flash CS4. Click on the “File” menu and select “New” to begin a new project.

  2. 2

    Import images or create them using the provided drawing tools for the graphics. Images should include your weapons, the scenery and targets.

  3. 3

    Insert text to display any relevant information, including the player’s accuracy, score and health.

  4. 4

    Program the desired actions using ActionScript. The programming should include image movement, shooting animations and keeping track of the player’s status.

  5. 5

    Select the “Publish” option in the “File” menu to compile your game into a publishable format.
