Remember, you will need to do some of that ''programming'' stuff.

Too many people assume that because flash is a reasonably accessible point-and-click animation tool, that somehow you can make games with it the same way.

Programming a decent game in flash requires all of the same theory, principles and methods that have always gone into game programming, albeit that quite a few(almost all) graphics routines are built into the player.

I have to say, though, that it''s built-in scripting language (actionscript) is far easier than C++, Java or Lingo. It''s based on the ECMA standard, so it''s very similar to java-script.

Try www.flashkit.com or www.were-here.com for tutorials. Both sites have excellent forums dedicated to flash games, folk in those forums are happy to help you when you get stuck at specific points, but don''t go asking for a complete set of step-by-step instructions, as you''ll just get flamed.

There''s also a flash-games mailing list I''ve recently set up on yahoo groups. email flashgameslist-subscribe@yahoogroups.com to subscribe.
