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.

About Dfragmente with 0 comments by hexdie on Dec 1st, 2014

Hello!So, I've added a couple new mechanics to liven up the level design some. Here they are:

Created a new type of door

To change up the level design a bit I created a new type of door which will only open up if the player has a certain number of keys (4 keys specifically at the moment). Here a gif I made while testing it out:

Multi-key door

And here is a larger image of that key:

Big ol' floppy disk

Added moving platforms

In typical platformer fashion, I decided to add moving platforms. This will give me another thing to play around with to build more interesting rooms.

Moving Platforms

Hopefully that's at least a little exciting. I'm happy with these things at least.
