depends on what type, if its a pong clone just flash and some time to learn its scripting, if you want a more complex game most devolper use various 3rd party tools for the programming

Like a defense type of game. Where you have a base and people(computers) try attack your base and with greater numbers as the levelz get higher.

where do you stand now, flash's vector art takes some time to get use to but fun to play with, the scripting system will take a while to get the hang of, works a bit like java syntax

unless you have something specil in mind it be easyest to do all the graphics in flash, though if you already have photoshop maby a nice background.
you can find some good tuorials on their site(pre mx is packaged with the tutorials) as for the scripting there are tutorials but you have to know some basic programing concepts to get any uses from them

So what your saying is that you need to know some concept of "programming" in order to make a game in Macromedia Flash?


Lol, that made me laugh. [No offense meant, DarkBlades.]

Yes, you need programming knowledge. If you don't want to write any code whatsoever, maybe check out this free and pretty cool program. It has a lot of cool features, though I guess you now have to make a "donation" of $15 dollars to get them.

if you intend to use plain scripting than yes, there are some tool to help with the flash scripting but iv never used them so you migh want to look into them.
Making a defender type game shouldnt be to hard to program or you could recruit someone if you dont want to learn
