One of the things I’ve always loved about Flash Professional and ActionScript is just how easy it is to knock together a quick web game. Flash’s design-develop workflow always made such things a breeze. But what about HTML5? Could I use Adobe Animate CC (formerly Flash Pro) and JavaScript to create a game just as easily? Well it turns out you can, and the workflow isn’t really that much different. I spent a few weekends building a Flappy Bird clone that you can try below.

If you’d like to know more, I’m currently writing a tutorial series for Adobe’s official Animate CC blog. The first two parts will take you through the steps required to create the game’s artwork, while the remaining parts will show you how to code the game and add the audio. Part one has just gone live so please take a look and let me know what you think.

Also, if you can’t wait, then feel free to head on over to GitHub and grab the game’s source code and .fla file.
