Make Your Own Flash Code With Wonderfl
Have you ever wanted to build, share, and use awesome Flash creations? The Website wonderfl lets you do just that (and unless you speak Japanese, then you may want to check out the fully Google translated version). After a substantially long period of drooling in front of my monitors, I found a couple awesome Flash scripts that you need to check out. If you're sitting at home bored out of your mind, then Wonderfl is definitely a site to check out.
Wonderfl lets you build ActionScripts from scratch, lets you copy and edit scripts from other users, and you can download and save scripts of your choice to your computer. The site also features a flash viewer; on the left-hand side of the screen is the code, and on the right is the preview screen—just hit start and you're ready to go! The site features games, awesome visualizations, and other miscellaneous Flash code tidbits.
The first example that you need to check out is What's this Bit? This Flash gmae displays a number in binary and you have to guess what the number is in decimal before the timer runs out.
If you're into shooting games and you like a challenge then I'd definitely check out WonderShmup. It's your standard space-shooter game, but it's very fast so you might want to keep your finger on the space-bar (the "fire" hotkey).
Another...um...interesting, and weird, game is The Supasupa Sabo. You take a “sword of light” with your mouse and slash apart cactuses as they come flying at you from the distance. I found this game completely pointless, but it easily supplied me with about 10 minutes of entertainment (ahem).
There is also the Spring Ball script which is definitely pretty entertaining. You are given two awkward vibrating balls; you can then grab one ball and throw it at the other ball. The balls can do all kinds of funky things like stick together, crunch into smaller shapes if thrown hard enough, or simply provide you with untold amounts of time consuming bounding off the walls.
Yes, wonderfl is definitely an awesome site to check out and will surely give you endless hours of fun and programming. But no trip to wonderfl is complete without playing with the insanely awesome Stardust. You'll spend hours—heck, you might even lose your job—moving colorful circles around a screen and watching sparkly 'stardust' flow across the screen (Colors--oh, the colors!), but it will be worth it.
