Create an animated viral game

Flash games are easy to build and are particularly effective as pieces of viral marketing. A good interactive game with a high-score board will spread round an office quickly, before being emailed to groups of friends or highlighted on social networking sites such as Facebook.

In the following project we show you how to create a Flash game, called Cover Creator, where you can create a fantasy Computer Arts Projects cover using a number of different graphical elements. Simply select icons and drag and drop them around the canvas. The game also includes a dynamic text generator, allowing user-specified text to be dragged and dropped.

You will need a Flash creator such as Macromedia Flash MX Professional in order to work along with this project.
