My First Fully Functional Flash Game

I just finished a OOP tutorial for Flash and made my own Ikaruga Clone!

It took me one and a half hours of coding and lots of patience! LOL

I’m happy with how it turned out and might add some more features like boss’s, splash screen and weapon upgrades and more!

Play it here!

Project FBG is now being updated on my progress at

I added Flash Game Dojo to my roadmap to getting a Facebook Game up and running.

The shootorial didn’t cut it so im going to use FlashPunk to make a game and put it on Kongregate.

Then continue with the already set out roadmap. Might Add Changes still 😉

I’m going to be posting regularly on my learning progress with snippets of code that I have written and what I learnt with that snippet in such a way that people can read it and sort-of learn from my progress but not boring!

Learn Flash Gaming the Fun Way! Shootorial – Kongregate


Kongregate (Photo credit: Wikipedia)


Kongregate has designed a lovely entry into flash gaming even though it has some problems in parts explaining what to do I LOVED IT!

It was fresh and had a flair to the graphics that I quite enjoyed. I did this for my FBG Project its step 1 in my roadmap to making a Farmville-a-like Facebook Game. There are 8 shootorials and are available in both CS3 and CS4 (Action Script 2 and 3), which is helpful for people who have the updated flash and the old one…

I think these need a bit of work to polish them up but havn’t found anything better yet?!


It took me around 3 hours to complete and I now have a basic to semi-advanced knowledge of flash and the inner working of the Action Script that goes into making a game.

Somehow I think making a Facebook Social game will be much much more challenging and will contain 10,000 if not 100,000 lines of coding to make work.


Mashroom is a place where you can create new music by mixing sounds and videos. It is a place for music lovers.

On Mashroom, you can mash up and create any kind of music from YouTube videos or videos from other sources. For that you only need to upload your video file. For that you only need to enter the URL of the YouTube page and you are done.

When creating a track, you can choose any sound you like. It can be your favourite artist’s sound, your favorite note, the sound you love. You can mash it up and create new music. You can stretch and shrink any sound, and adjust the volume and timing.

Citizens for Optimism

I Like the First One 😀


How do you inspire happiness? Some find it easy to do so by stringing together beautiful sentences with words that fall into place and fill gaps in our minds. Others create magic by strumming a few notes on their guitar that can instantly lift your spirit. Then there are those who mix the stunning worlds of writing and design to form the best of both worlds.

In this case – Citizens for Optimism; a col­lab­o­ra­tion of 17 design­ers who created posters inspiring optimism.  There are 17 posters in all, inspired by 17 words.

10 Flash Games Worth Checking Out

Power Cords

Being a college student I am getting pretty used to being broke. As much as I would love to go out and buy every new big release it is simply unrealistic on my budget. Because of this I often turn to free content on the web, specifically free flash games. Here is a list of ten of my personal favorites that I have come across browsing free games over the years. While they are nowhere near as impressive as Mass Effect 3 or other big releases of the year they are totally worth spending half an hour to check them out.

Pandemic 2

Let me start with the game I have probably spent the most time with: Pandemic 2. In the Pandemic series you play the role of new-born pathogen trying to eliminate the human race. You start out by choosing whether you would like to play as a bacteria…

Don’t You Hate It When…

Don’t You Hate It When…you go to do something and totally stuff it up,

This is going to be the place where all those stuff ups can be posted for the world to see.

Don’t You Hate It When…

  you get in your car with no keys.

     you go to shower lock the door and get undressed and notice there’s no towel.

     are driving and forget where your going.

I thought people would get a chuckle from looking at people’s mistakes and make them think that they aren’t so bad because they don’t do any of those, and also for people who do the stuff they see here that they aren’t alone and nobody is perfect. +Stay Positive+

15 Iconic TV Shows to Guess

Loving how simple and ingenius they are.


Last time we confessed our love for TV shows and today, celebrating the return of one of our favorites for season two (we won’t say the name not to spoil the riddle but you know which one we mean, of course), a post combining our two loves: shows and icons.

Below a set of 15 shows each presented through three icons for your guessing pleasure. We realize that most of these are ridiculously easy if you’re a TV-maniac (and possibly very difficult if you’re not, who knows) but boy, were they fun to work on. (And yes, we’ve seen all these shows, at least a couple of episodes but often quite a lot of them.)

Under each poster there is an answer in white: you have to highlight it to read.

New! Now we’re selling the posters here.


Mad Men

Game of Thrones (yes, it’s back tomorrow)

Project FBG is a go! Step 1

I had a great idea at work today, I Love programming and making games/websites all sorts of things on a computer.

My partner Loves FB Games, so who better to help me make one than her, hopefully she will be a tough critic and will help make this game successful.

I found some tutorials online, but at I found a roadmap that seems good.

  1. Learn flash, I recommend Kongregates Shootorial, start at step 0.

Wish me good luck ;D

KO’d by Karma

Susie Lindau's Wild Ride

As most people know, karma can be a rude evil witch that blindsides us when we least expect it. To me, karma is the reaction to our actions in the universe. Sometimes it is negative and causes the boomerang to hit us in the face. Recently, I found this to be a fact.

I talked my husband Danny into having some freckles, (skin damage) burned off his face. The dermatologist seemed a little over-zealous and he came home with several dime-sized brown spots where the doctor had frozen them with liquid nitrogen.

“Look at what you did to me!” he said half-joking.
