I was recently asked to do a tutorial on how to get the Newgrounds API, allowing you to use Newgrounds Ads, Medals, Leaderboards and other site special stuff, to work with HaxeFlixel using FlashDevelop. Since there isn’t much on the subject, I thought I’ll write a quick one up to get people started.
Hey everyone! Great news, my entry for Ludum Dare 27 is online!
10 Second Paper Flight is a toss game, your aim is to make a paper aeroplane fly for 10 seconds, however it isn’t easy with the wind being powerful, and the things that parks get in the way!
I built the game in Actionscript 3 using Adam Atomic’s Flixel Framework, with artwork in Photoshop, Music using Bu-Autotracker and SoundEffects using Bfxr. Considering it’s my first original game programmed in Flixel (no going through tutorials or dabbling about like I have done in Flixel for the last month), it’s impressive I was able to pull this off in 48 hours, with artwork AND sound done by me as well.
Check out the Ludum Dare page here.
Or play the game directly on Newgrounds!
EDIT: You can now check out a timelapse of the making of 10 Second Paper Flight below!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to vote on several game jam submissions!
