6 Ways To Generate Income From Flash Games

0

Flash games have really become popular in the ppast few years. Social gaming is really on the rise, with Nintendo’s Wii console and DS, and social sites like Facebook making games of accessible and appealing to a wider audience than ever before, there is a massive growth in the industry. As a Flash designer you can cash in on this by adding Flash games to your portfolio.

The most obvious way of profiting from Flash games is to develop them for clients. The freelance sites such as Freelancer.com or ScriptLance have daily listings for client requiring Flash game development work. Not only will you earn directly from the project, but by adding that game to your portfolio you’ll attract more clients in the future.

If you don’t want the obligation and deadlines of working for clients, sponsorship mighht suit you better. This allows you to develop a game at your own pace, and once completed your sponsor pays you to embed their branding and links into the game. The amount you’ll earn will vary, depending on the company which is sponsoring you, and the quality of the game.

The next optin is to monetise your games yourself. These days several advertising networks offer the ability to embed adverts directly into your games, earning you money every time they are played. The networks usually have publishers who will distribute your games for a share of the revenue making it easy to get your game noticed.

You can also monetise your games by simply hosting them yourself, and displaying adverts on the same page. Banner adverts, Adsense blocks or affiliate promotions are all viable ways of monetising the traffic that a good Flash game will generate.

Recently several companies have introduced micro-payments and in-game currency. This allows players to buy upgrades and items, and is a new and fast growing way to monetise games. While this method is still in its infancy, I predict we’ll be seeing more and more of this in the near future.

Finally, perhaps the most obvious, and certainly the most glamorous way to capitalize on the success of a good Flash game is to release a commercial version. Whether it’s a downloadable PC game or a port to an entirely new platform, such as the Nintendo DS, the Xbox Live network or the iPhone, a well designed unique game with the right marketing can be a real success, and open the doors into the mainstream gaming industry.

So what are you waiting for? There’s no doubt that developing browser games can be very profitable, and there are some great opportunities right now to enter the industry during its growth phase. If you haven’t done so already, start working through some tutorials, pick apart some existing game source code, and learn to become a successful games developer.

The Versatility of Flash Games

0

Flash games have been around for a long time, essentially ever since the program’s introduction by Macromedia back in 1996. Currently, newer versions of Flash are made under Adobe, which purchased Macromedia in December of 2005. When Flash first came out, it was quite difficult to design games, as the application had not had time to be perfected and still had many bugs and flaws.

In fact, one had to be almost a computer genius just to figure the program out, let alone design a game with it. Over the years, as Flash evolved and was updated, it became progressively easier to manipulate and learn. Nowadays, even a novice can teach himself to develop Flash games in as little as a week, although it takes longer to design advanced games.

Flash has its own unique coding language that programmers use to add interactivity to their creations. The language is known as Actionscript, which along with Flash, was developed by Macromedia. It closely resembles the web language Javascript and is based on ECMAScript. Those who are familiar with Javascript and other dialects of ECMAScript can easily pick up Actionscript. For one to create a game in Flash, it is required that they know Actionscript, as it is impossible to develop any interactive application without utilizing it. Like other programming languages, there are a wide variety of resources and books on the subject, so anybody who is interested in learning it has the freedom to do so.

There are numerous benefits of Flash games over traditional computer software games. First and foremost, they are free, and you will rarely ever find a website that charges you to play Flash games; if paid websites do exist, they probably do not get any business, as it is incredibly easy to find a site that hosts Flash games that anyone can access. Flash applications are inherently unique, and each one has a different and inimitable feel.

Due to this fact, one will never get bored, and being that the games are free, you can play as many games as you want for as long as you want and never have to pay a penny, unlike computer games which can cost fifty dollars and which one tires of relatively quickly. Every day, new Flash creations are added to the Internet. There are even some websites that exist solely for the purpose of receiving Flash submissions, and many of these sites allow users to vote on which games they like best.

Beyond simple entertainment, there are many market applications for Flash games. Businesses can add games to their websites as a means to attract potential customers, retain them, and offer added value besides just their products. Depending on the quality of a game, it can turn out to be viral, and spread around the Internet at a rapid pace. If you can manage to host an exclusive, viral Flash game on your website, the amounts of traffic you receive will be astounding.

However, it takes a long time and a lot of labor to develop an application, meaning that if you cannot do it yourself, you will need to pay thousands of dollars to someone else to make one for you. Like any investment, there is both the potential for profit or loss, so if you choose to take this route, make sure the game designer you go with has a high quality track record and is reliable.

Simple, Fun Children’s Gymnastic Games

0

In a system of gymnastics, games may be used for hygienic, developmental and educational purposes. For general hygienic ends their value is great, if for no other reason, than that it usually requires a large air space, often outdoors, to play them. On the other hand, the hygienic value of games is a doubtful one, because the movements occurring in games can only be predetermined in general. That means that they cannot be graded as to quantity or quality with exactness.

Exactness, however, in these two things, is an absolute necessity where gymnastics are given for hygienic ends. Such exactness being possible with formal gymnastic exercises, these therefore must always be given a preference where exactness in quantity and quality of exercise is desirable or necessary.

The same may be said to be true of the developmental effect of exercises occurring in games. If it be difficult to trace the effect, formal gymnastic movements have upon the development of this tissue or that organ, it is certainly impossible to exactly predict the effect which the unpredetermined movements in games might have. Formal gymnastics will always be far superior in this respect to games.

To turn to the educational purposes of games. They are mental and moral ones. Among the mental ones co-ordination should be separately considered. As far as some of the mental processes (to be mentioned hereafter) are serviceable to establish coordination, games may be said to help coordination. Games can, however not be arranged methodically for coordination purposes, for the simple reason that the movements occurring in them cannot be predetermined. The development of coordination power must, therefore, also be the domain of formal gymnastics.

What use games are in the moral training of children and youth has been enlarged upon by many authors in many places. Even that teaching has to be incidental, as the occasion for pointing a moral offers in the course of a game. The great value of games in this direction lies in the fact that most of the moral teaching reward for proper punishment for improper actions is self administered or then applied by pupil-companions and playmates, not by the teacher.

In any attempt to classify games for teaching purposes one should arrange them as to their difficulty. The movements not being predetermined, classification according to mechanical, physiological or moral principles will be impossible. Classification according to the apparatus the game is played with, as for instance, ball games, or according to the exercise most conspicuous within the games (as running games), is arbitrary, and for teaching purposes useless, for it classes together games of the most different grades of difficulty.

The mechanical difficulty might be approximately foreseen and games classified accordingly. Yet if we look closely, we find that most bodily movements occurring in games are in themselves extremely simple and easy of execution. What is it then that makes games differently difficult of execution? For that they do differ in difficulty, is at once clear. Little children do not attempt competitive games. Youth will not play complicated games, as baseball or football well. They are too difficult for them. If, then, the difficulty be not mechanical, it must be mental.

Before undertaking the task of classifying games according to mental difficulty for teaching purposes, we should ask, is it necessary to teach games? May not games be left to the play instinct of children?

Some examples of childrens gymnastic games:
i. HIPPITY HOP: The pupils form in line, one behind the other. At the word, to start, all follow the leader around the room, hopping on the left and right foot alternately.

2. SERPENTINE MAZE: The girls grasp hands firmly, then follow the leader or head of the line easily, without pulling or jerking. The leader, who should be the strongest and most skilful of the girls, leads her line about the playground, through many turns and windings, in the opposite direction to her column, forms a loop by passing through under the upraised arms of two of the players, then remains standing while her column forms a spiral around her.

This spiral is unwound by the last of the column starting and the others following her, or by the leader starting out from the center and leading her column back and forth through under the upraised arms of the followers.

3. SISTER PHOEBE: One impersonating the dame sits in a chair, the others, joining hands, form a ring and move around her slowly, chanting : “Old Sister Phoebe, how happy was she When she sat under the juniper tree.”

At the end of every chant a pause is made to allow one from those behind the sitter to withdraw and hide herself. This is repeated until the last has withdrawn. Sister Phoebe, whose sleeping had been soothed by the singing, awakens by the silence, rises, and looking anxiously around, calls loudly for her charge. At the call, all come running back with the joyous cry, “Heigh-ho! says Rollo.”

II. GENERAL IMITATION.
4. PLAYING CARS: Each player is given some part of a train to represent (the engine, whistle, passengers, conductor, etc.). Being arranged in order, the engine leading, they march or run around, each imitating the part he represents, stopping at stations, etc.

5. PLAYING HORSE: Several players represent horses and move around in imitation of them, while others, as drivers, have ropes attached to the horses or catch hold of some part of their clothing and drive them, imitating the various motions of a driver.
