HaxeFlixel is an open source 2D game library written for use with the Open Flash Library and the Haxe Toolkit, it is completely free for personal or commercial use. This game library enables multi platform development for native targets on mobile and desktop as well as flash and experimental html5 support on web platforms.

This project was founded by Alexander Hohlov, also known on Beeblerox on GitHub, who continues to be the project lead for the HaxeFlixel Organisation group. The project itself also has an active community with contributions from highly valued developers (by github names) crazysam, impaler, Werdn, ProG4mr, Gama11, sergey-miryanov and more.

HaxeFlixel is largely based on the AS3 version of Flixel written by Adam “Atomic” Saltsman. One of the major motivations for creating HaxeFlixel is overcoming the limitations of the Actionscript 3 language and the Adobe Flash and Air runtime targets. HaxeFlixel has been able to incorporate and continues to add new language features of Haxe and incorporate exciting new runtime targets through OpenFL.

The day is here, Magnet Man Adventures is finally out for your purchasing pleasure! Or maybe I should say acquisitioning pleasure, as the game is pay-what-you-want.

I will be writing a post-mortem once things have calmed down somewhat, as I've actually learned a lot during this project. I've already got some other things in the pipeline, so you'll probably get a sneak peek sooner rather than later! Finally I'm of course already busy supporting the game, fixing bugs that users discover etc. so if there's any feedback you'd like to give, I'm all ears!

Now I'm not gonna waste any more of your time by blathering on; instead I'll leave you with a link to the game, a few screenshots and an expression of thanks for following me on this journey and for checking out the game!
