FlashPunk.png FlashPunk is a free ActionScript library, created by Chevy Ray Johnston, designed for developing 2D Flash games. Its goal is to provide a fast, clean framework to prototype and develop games in. This means that most of the dirty work (timestep, animation, input, and collision to name a few) is already coded and ready to go, allowing more time and energy to concentrate on design and testing. FlashGameDojo's wiki provided a set of useful snippets and tutorials for FlashPunk users to browse through.

Features

  • Fixed and variable timestep support.
  • Fast & manageable rectangle, pixel, and grid collision system.
  • Helper classes for animations, tilemaps, text, backdrops, and more.
  • Sound effect support with volume, panning, and fading/crossfading.
  • Powerful motion tweening for linear, curved, and path-based movement.
  • Z-sorted render lists for easy depth management.
  • Simple keyboard and mouse input state checking.
  • Quick & efficent particle effects and emitters.
