Below is my first attempt at using the limited knowledge I have with regards to flash to do something â€œusefulâ€. It quizzes you on the following sounds: à¤•, à¤•à¤¾, à¤•à¤¿, and à¤•à¥€. It starts off by saying on of these sounds. If you didnâ€™t catch it, then click â€œreplayâ€ to hear it again. Press the letter you think it is. If you are right, it will say â€œcorrectâ€ and go to the next one. If you are wrong, then it will display â€œwrongâ€ and go on to the next one. In the upper right side of the screen, it keeps track of the number correct vs the total number.
I want to create some flash games to help people lean Hindi on my www.ISpeakHindi.com site. I got the 30 day try to Adobe Flash, and got the book â€œFoundation Game Design with Flashâ€ by Rex van der Spuy. It is fantastic. I have a programming background, but I think this book starts you off basic enough that I want my 11 year-old and 7 year old to go through it. (They have been wanting to make flash games for a long timeâ€¦ And it isnâ€™t that hard to do something simple.)
Iâ€™m only at the end of chapter 3, and this is what I have been able to create. Note, every single graphic on this was produced by me falling directions in the book. There is no, â€œjust copy this graphic and place it hereâ€, it is literally teaching how to draw all these things and create the scene. Really great!
