Demo

QuickStart

Import flixel

#REFLECTION_FILTER="your_app*"

Function Main()
    New HelloWorld()
    Return 0
End Function

'Main class of the game
Class HelloWorld Extends FlxGame

    Method New()
        Super.New(640, 480, GetClass("HelloWorldState"))    
    End Method

    'Optional
    Method OnContentInit:Void()
        #Rem
        Register here all your assets, to use within application
        Example:
        FlxAssetsManager.AddImage("ball", "graphics/ball.png")

        Now you can load an image in the game this way:
        Local sprite:FlxSprite = New FlxSprite(0, 0, "ball")
        #End
    End Method

End Class

'Main game state 
Class HelloWorldState Extends FlxState

    Method Create:Void()        
        Local helloWorld:FlxText = New FlxText(10, 10, 620, "Hello World!") 
        helloWorld.SetFormat(FlxText.SYSTEM_FONT, 16, FlxG.WHITE, FlxText.ALIGN_CENTER) 
        Add(helloWorld)     
    End Method

    Method Update:Void()
        'put your game logic here
        Super.Update()
        '... or here
    End Method

End Class
