Halloween Games For All.

Well I figured it was about time I got into the spirit of Halloween and what better way to do that than to slap together a quick flash game that lets you throw Butterfingers at Jackolanterns?

I certainly hope your up to the task. Can you feed the infinite wave 900 Butterfingers to complete the game? Just in case you do. Let me know and I'll update the game with a new level, and some more creatures of the night. I must warn you that you have no lives in this Halloween game. If you are shot it resets immediately, so don't go getting yourself killed!

Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it. Flash CS5 makes Flash programming a breeze less then 24 hours and I'm already getting the hang of it.

If you want a quick start to programming Flash you should check out this Game Innovator blog post, using the source found there, I quickly had this small project done. This post is a bit old and targetted at CS4. However, the scripts still function in CS5 very well.  Happy Halloween!

Don't forget to drop by my article Halloween is Here on AC for some tips on keeping safe and finding great local attractions.

Update : I've decide to write an article detailing the process of creating this game using CS5 since GameInnovators post appears to be dead. You can find the details below.

How to Make a Flash Game

If you've been wondering how to get started with flash game development, then wonder no more. To get started all you need to do is download the latest flash development tool, Flash CS5 from Adobe. Don't worry, I know $250 seems steep, but you can quickly get up and running with the 30 day trial. If that's not long enough to get you started you might want to try something a bit easier fist. (Casual gamesCultureDevIndustry)

Is Clear Internet Service Any Good?

Clear Went by the Name of Clear-Wire Prior to a Lawsuit Involving Unfair Lease Contracts

Many people these days seek an on the go internet provider, and Clear can certainly fill that need. The unfortunate problem lies in their inherent inability, to provide wireless access to every region, due to the fact that Clear is based on 2.6Ghz wireless signals. (CultureGadgetsIndustryServicesWeb)

What Energy Is, Where it Comes From

The actual definition of energy leaves it very open to interpretation, energy is any force that compels a change in its environment, words with similar meanings include go, pep, zip, elan, zeal, zest, drive, force, power, and vitality. Since energy has such a broad description, it's a very hard thing to measure, when a person says he has lots of energy, it is left to the person being spoken to for interpretation. (CultureIndustry)

Best Web Design Software Programs

These 5 Web Development Software Programs Will Satisfy Your Need for Web Content with Ease

When you need to build a webpage right away, and don't know anything about HTML, you often turn to web design software programs as a solution. Even people who before would have written their code out in pure HTML, may be interested in using some web development software programs to "spruce up" their webpages, or learn to use more advanced features of web design, like XHTML or PHP scripting. Where to turn for the best web development software programs currently on the market though? (CultureIndustrySoftwareWeb)

Top 5 All in One PCs

The PCs You Can Put in Your Living or Bedroom Without Getting Crowded.

The term PC was coined by IBM in the early eighties to mean Personal Computer, the first in their line was the 8088 and was about the size of a large suitcase weighing at least 35 lbs. Because most people don't have a lot of space for a computer and recent technology has allowed us to manufacture smaller and smaller electronics, the all in one PC has been created. iMacs can't really be called PCs and so they won't be included in this list of the top 5 all in one PC. However, you should know that they were the original all in one computer. Now let's take a look at those top 5 all in one PCs. (AudioCultureGadgetsGamingHi-techPCPC hardwareVideo)

Most Anticipated RPG Games of Fall/Winter 2010/2011

Each year a new line of RPG comes out, and each year we get to live a new adventure. The greatest RPG games will take you through an epic storyline, unmatched by any other, and the worst will do little more than entertain the weak minded of us. (CultureNintendo DSPCPSPXbox 360)

Most Anticipated FPS Games of Fall/Winter 2010/2011

One of the most interesting trends in the history of gaming is the FPS trend. Over the years this trend has grown from the original Wolfenstein 3D into a compendium of titles ranging from ID software's Doom to the more recent Modern Warfare line. One of the most compelling and interesting facades of this genre of video games, is the evolution from simple demon based single player games like Doom and Wolfenstein into games like Call of Duty and Modern Warfare. With each year bringing even more new technology, designs, and ideas to this genre, what are these gamers looking forward to the most this year? (Call of DutyCulturePCPS3Xbox 360)

Most Anticipated MMORPG Games of Fall/Winter 2010/2011

The MMORPG crowd is typically more loyal then the average consumer. When a person picks an MMO to play and invests a lot of time into it, it can become very difficult to pry them away from it for the next best thing. I for one have reached high levels in several MMORPGS and found myself having a lot a trouble quitting due to the sheer amount of time that I had invested into them, but these 5 MMO games of 2010 have me chomping at the bit to make the change even with the knowledge that I will have to start all over again. (Casual gamesCulture,Next-GenPC)
The greatest games of this year have yet to be realized, but they are coming very soon. Some are to be released this month, and some are to be released next month. Of all of these games the ones that I am anticipating the most are the RPG title Final Fantasy Four Heroes, Rage for the PS3, and Halo Reach which was released just a few days ago now!.

The most anticipated games can sometimes be a bust, but in the case of Halo Reach it has scored a 93 out of 100 for gamers interest of those who attended it's unveiling in Seattle Washington just the other day.If you want to get your hands on these titles odds are you are going to have to stand in a long line, I hope you have these most anticipated games of fall/winter 2010/2011 on pre-order.
