Are you more interested in the artistic side of Flash, more motivated to develop your Graphic Design skills than in understanding how ActionScript programs work? That is another side of Flash game development. The following book would be recommended (and on reserve at the library) if you wish to focus on game graphics and specialize in that aspect of Flash games for your projects and assignments.

Macromedia 8 Professional Game Graphics by Robert Firebaugh. The cost of this book is $30.36 at www.amazon.com. List price of the Robert Firebaugh book at amazon.com is $39.95.


This class does NOT require any previous graphics or programming experience.
