Flex Builder 3 First Impression

If you read my previous article Flex 3 Released you’d know that I was lucky enough to win a free copy of Flex Builder 3 at the February CPAUG meeting. I’m not sure why, but Adobe chose to send a boxed version of Flex Builder to all of the winners rather than e-mailing them a key-code for a downloaded copy. Oh well, that’s okay by me, I’m not really in a rush to try Flex and I wouldn’t mind having an installation disc around ‘just in case’ I ever need it.

After a couple weeks, my prize from Adobe finally arrived via Fed-Ex. I promptly stripped it from it’s bubble-wrapped confines and marveled at its splendor. Safely nestled within the Fed-Ex package was a shiny white box which contained another more cleverly shaped box which held yet another plastic box. Ooooo (pronounced the way you’d say it if you were watching a fireworks display) this was SO worth the wait!

Eels to Urchins Updated

My Eels to Urchins Flash game has been updated. Changes include the following:

  • Instead of rolling over the Eels, you guide a white Urchin to them.
  • Scoring has been added with ‘Best’ and ‘Average’ statistics.
  • Statistics and audio preferences are stored in a local SharedObject.
  • The game now has an end. You can restart once all of the levels have been cleared.
  • Level variables are now stored in an easy to edit XML file.

Leave a comment to let me know what you think of the game.

Contact me if you’re interested in trying your hand at designing custom levels, its sort of fun. 😉

Eels to Urchins Flash Game

Here’s a Flash game that I’ve been playing with, I call it “Eels to Urchins” for fairly obvious reasons. I still need to develop the levels a little further but it’s at a point where you can give it a try and tell me what you think.

Beating the Chat Noir Kitty

The game called Chat Noir, which can be found in my Ten Fun Flash Games article, was driving Wilhelm crazy so I thought I’d show him that the “frickin cat” can indeed be boxed.

What does this mean to you?

Ten Fun Flash Games

These are the best Flash games from They’re easy to learn, easy to play, and each one is guaranteed to provide at least 1 solid minute of entertainment. Enjoy!


Chat Noir#10) Chat Noir

Kitty! This cute little kitten is probably smarter than you. Try to box him in with dark circles before he bounds off-screen.

Shuffle#9) Shuffle

A super simple billiards type game. Knock all of the other balls off the table to win.

Spin Black Circle#8) Spin the Black Circle

This game turns the world around… and around and around. Spin the big black circle clockwise or counterclockwise to let gravity guide a ball to its goal. This simple and unique concept offers fun gameplay (to a point). Some mazes can be maddeningly frustrating and I would have liked this game much more if there was a way to save my position midway through a level. Restarting from the beginning after getting SO CLOSE was only fun the first 800 times.
