Flash is an animation and game-making software program that can be used to create online games. One type of game that it can be used to make are sniper games. Sniper games feature a character hiding out in a safe area, controlling an aiming cursor from a first-person view. The character must shoot enemies on the screen in order to defeat missions. Often, the games emphasise reflexes and careful aiming. Making your own sniper game in Flash requires downloading Flash software, mastering the programming methods and then coming up with your own sniper game.

Skill level:
Moderately Challenging


  1. 1

    Download Flash from the Adobe website and learn how to program with its programming language ActionScript using online tutorials.

  2. 2

    Design your game on paper. Write a short story to go along with your game, as well as designing the visual look, including backgrounds and character sketches. You should also design each mission objective and create several different diverse missions.

  3. 3

    Use ActionScript to program the first level of the game to test your abilities. This should include character design, game control, backgrounds and enemy behaviour. ActionScript uses a "frame by frame" programming method, meaning you have to program and plan each frame of animation.

  4. 4

    Program the rest of your levels using ActionScript. Play-test the game to find any mistakes in programming and animation. Change the code in ActionScript to fix these mistakes.

  5. 5

    Upload your game onto one of the many Flash gaming websites available online. You may have to open a free account to do so, depending on the website. Now people can play your game.
