I've seen alot of question about how to start making flash games but the real underlying problem is that people do not know how to program. I believe this stems from a lack of self direction rather then motivation. Thus I will try my best to provide resources for that struggle and you provide the motivation to learn.
Since this guide is intended to lead you to learning how to make flash games I believe it will be the best if we start out with java since the languages are similar.
Are you still practicing you programming in as3 and java? Good, if not then pick up the slack...slacker.
3. Wow you can make programs? No longer is your code cheap scrambled spaghetti and is instead prime untangled strands of delicious linguini? Good we can move on. At this point you have all the tools and knowledge to create a game but not much experience so it will be a struggle as you hit all the bumps every programmer before you has hit. Your job is to work though those bumps and head toward the light. Flash Game University is a decent book on how to make game it assume you can pretty much program and heads into the nitty gritty. I starts out with simple games like matching and then it get more complicated with platformers and more complex games.
The author provide the source files on the game on the website for buyers of the book but there is nothing stopping you from downloading them except your morals. There are tons of other resources for games if you Google them.
