Don’t We Need the Original Flash Source Files and Code?
We don’t usually need to original source files to convert your Flash game to HTML5. Just a playable build of the old Flash game.
Budget permitting, we usually recommend revisiting game assets and ideally recreating artwork/animations and sound from scratch anyway. This can give your new HTML5 game conversion a more polished, modern look, especially if your games are getting a bit long in the tooth and looking a bit dated.
Because mobile compatibility means catering for touch screens, in many case some rethinking on the gameplay design/controls will be necessary when converting your Flash game.

What is the Process for Converting Flash Games to HTML5?
The Flash to HTML5 game conversion process starts by taking a look at the existing Flash version of your game. From here we can produce a spec and plan for the new HTML5 conversion of your game.
Doing a direct 1:1 conversion of your Flash game isn’t usually a good idea. So we do everything by hand. We don’t use any automated scripts or code translation tools, but rewrite code from scratch.
We can also produce new assets where necessary as part of the converiosn process, including artwork, animation and sound. This ensures you get the best possible end product. In most cases the new HTML5 version of your game will be significantly better than the original Flash game.
One of the main reasons for converting a Flash game to HTML5 is bring to it up-to-date by making it compatible with mobile devices. This usually requires a rethink on controls and possibly game mechanics. Otherwise your new HTML5 game won’t work well (if at all) on mobile touch screens. So we can advise you on that and do any game redesign work as part of the game conversion process too.
Then there’s the different screen sizes you’re going to want to support for cross-device compatibility. We can update game designs and layouts to use responsive design. This will make the new HTML5 conversion of your game work well and look great across different screen sizes and aspect ratios.
Once we’ve nailed all of that down we’ll be able to get to work. You’ll also get to see work we’ve done as we progress.
