Atari and Adobe Flash Professional

Important Note: Toolkit for CreateJS has now been replaced with HTML5.

It is highly unlikely that you are reading this blog post and have not played an Atari game ever before. For gamers, passionate or otherwise, casual or obsessive, skilled or talented, Atari games would have been one of the common starting points for developing gaming acumen. Do you know that Atari is taking its historic games to the mobile platform across multiple screens? Empowered by CreateJS libraries, Atari will deliver its games targeting the HTML5 platform to ensure compatibility across multiple mobile platforms and screens. For more information, watch this video.

The project involved creating multitudes of animated assets to create touch-friendly games with rich content. Yes, you guessed it right, Flash Professional CS6 along with the Toolkit for CreateJS extension and some custom JSFL was used to carry out this mammoth task of preparing assets. To know more about Toolkit for CreateJS, see this DevNet article. Also, visit to know more about Grant Skinner, creator of CreateJS and a prime contributor to the Atari HTML5 project.

    I was very excited when I read this somewhere on my twitter feed. I did see GSkinner and was really hopping it was done in Flash. Supper exciting.

    Adobe needs to provide a little more on what is possible via CreateJS… I’ve dabbled around with Flash CS6, though I was a little confused on how to trigger events, since there is no Actionscript conversion…. So I was wondering how that would happen?
