With this update, we can finally say farewell to the venerable Adobe Flash Player as it is no longer a requirement to play. Everything you need is a modern web browser. Play on Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, or iOS with no need for plugins or installers.
Continuing with the restoration of existing Flash content, this time I recovered the Game Engine Test experiment.
It not only demonstrated a 2D game engine. This experiment also used to showcase Flash Player 8’s filter and bitmap capabilities. These latter features are not supported by Ruffle right now. So, to make it somewhat interesting, I added a virtual gamepad to facilitate its accessibility on touch screens.
The Vile Demo is a small demonstration of a 2D game engine I published many years ago. It has neither an actual end nor game objectives. When the most popular web browsers dropped support for the Flash Player earlier this year, it was rendered unplayable. Now, thanks to Ruffle and some code maintenance, you can play it again.
There are some other game updates after the break.
