While looking around for a game engine for iOS development, I found out that Adobe Flash can create games. I hadn't payed much attention to the program since I got it as I've been using Photoshop and Illustrator extensively for freelance work. Knowing that flash can create games, what can I actually do with it? At version CS5, would I still be able to develop for things like iphone 5 and above? For html5? I know that the latest version on Adobe Cloud can do so for html5 and has other advanced features. But can I say, make a game in Fl cs5 with plugins for html5 and later versions of iphone?


My plan is to develop for mobile platforms and possibly web. I want to utilize something like leadbolt to gain revenue from.


I searched around for similar topics, but didn't find my answer.


I have some game making experience and know the process. I want to make a small game and just see how well it does with leadbolt for monetization.

I'm pretty sure it requires CS6 or later. Check the settings for publishing on AIR, the dropdown list should include the mobile platforms.

Ah, I was hoping CS5 could pull it off since it has action script 3.0 on the start menu. Perhaps if AIR is updated to the latest, maybe even CS5 could be used for publishing to iOS 5+?


Thanks for the info.

Yes, you can.


Follow this tutorial on how to do it:



If you are serious about app dev with Adobe Air, I strongly suggest making the splurge to upgrade to cs6. The mobile features they've added are well worth the $200 upgrade price.
