Adobe Flash 11 And AIR 3 Will Deliver ‘Console-Quality’ Games
Adobe today expressed details of its upcoming Flash Player 11 and AIR 3 which the software maker has said will offer development of high-end, 3D-intensive games on smartphone and tablet devices alike.
The company’s very latest AIR and Flash Player software will enable developers to unleash their mastery across the likes of OS X, Android, RIM BlackBerry, Windows and connected TVs, to name a few. However, because Flash and Apple famously don’t mix, iOS will be limited only to AIR 3.
Adobe has billed Flash Player 11 and AIR 3 as the “game console for the Web,” as the collaboration will allow 2D and 3D games to be enjoyed across the net on “nearly all PCs and many other devices.”
The duo will bring full hardware-accelerated rendering for 2D and 3D graphics, enabling 1,000 times faster rendering performance over their respective predecessors. Smooth 60 FPS rendering will give developers the capacity to deliver console-quality games surpassing anything currently available on a mobile device.
