Flash Forward Game Jam

Hey guys, the Newgrounds Flash Forward Game Jam is over, so I’m making this post to feature some of my favourite games from it. This jam was all about making browser Flash games that work in Ruffle – no Flashplayer plugin required. Ruffle is an open-source Flashplayer that works natively in browsers, mobile, and desktop, and currently runs ActionScript 2 games, with ActionScript 3 being worked on now.

One of the coolest features of Ruffle so far is that Flash games now run very well in fullscreen – just right click to go into fullscreen mode in any of these games!

You can play more games from the Game Jam here on Newgrounds.

Bullet Heaven 3 [Prototype]
Throw Rocks at Shit
AshBelt
Brain Toasting Dungeon
Spot & Click
Drop Cannon

BH3: Medals

Achievements and leaderboards are done! Bullet Heaven 3 [Prototype] should be finished in a day or two. I’ll put it up on my website first, and then on Newgrounds a day or two later, which is where the leaderboards will be viewable.

The game will be playable on mobile if you have a stylus, but will probably be quite laggy. You definitely want to play this on a PC with a mouse for the best experience.

Bunch of Browser Games

Hey guys, in case you didn’t notice yet, I’m gradually adding more and more Flash games to the browser games section of this website.

I’m collecting classic Flash games by various developers that were somewhat influential either to me or in general. Currently only ActionScript 2 games work in browsers through Ruffle, but gradually more and more games will be compatible and I will be able to host more of my favourites.

I strongly recommend playing Drop Cannon – as that’s a brand new Flash game created in 2021, which shows off what Ruffle can do.
