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.
