In Flash Professional CS5: Creating a Simple Game for Android Devices, author Paul Trani shows how to translate existing Flash skills from the web to mobile devices while designing a game in Flash and publishing it as an AIR for Android app. The finished application includes collision detection, random enemy creation and movement, shooting capabilities, multiple levels, and even a high score screen. This course also goes beyond game functionality and shows how to use mobile capabilities such as the accelerometer and gestures to control graphics, use the hardware keys to activate menus, and also how to optimize content so it plays well on mobile devices. Also included are instructions for distributing an app through the Android Market. Exercise files are included with the course.
If you are a Premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library, or if you're watching this tutorial on a disc, you have access to the exercise files to use throughout this title. Here are the exercise files. They are in this folder. And again, you can see that there is Begin and Final files as well, and then there's an Assets folder that includes Code Snippets and some other graphics. If you are a Monthly or Annual subscriber to lynda.com, you actually don't have access to these exercise files, so it might be a little more tricky if you're trying to follow along, but the code snippets will be available to you for free as a free download.
Now, let's dive into creating an app for Android devices.
