Community fork of Adam “Atomic” Saltsman's popular game engine Flixel. Distilled from a variety of Flash games he worked on over the last couple years, including Gravity Hook, Fathom and Canabalt, its primary function is to provide some useful base classes that you can extend to make your own game objects.

About Flixel and Flixel Community##

Flixel is a well known open source and free game engine created by Adam “Atomic” Saltsman. Flixel has been used in hundreds of games, including IGF nominees, Adult Swim games, and avant-garde experiments. Many Flixel users make their first game ever in Flixel.

Flixel Community was born as a healthy fork of Flixel. It is not supposed to replace Flixel or to compete with it, but to co-exist. Adam (Flixel's author) encouraged us to grow a community version and maintain it to our heart's content, even offering it as an alternative to Flixel.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
