HaxeFlixel was created by Alexander Hohlov, also known as Beeblerox who continues to be the project lead. The codebase started largely from a Haxe port of the AS3 version of Flixel written by Adam “Atomic” Saltsman and Richard Davey's Power Tools

Special thanks go to the community contributors Werdn, gamedevsam, impaler, ProG4mr, Gama11, sergey-miryanov and more.

HaxeFlixel presents substantial enhancements from the original Flixel AS3 code:

  • Use of a robust and powerful, open source language
  • Flexible Asset Management System
  • Cross-platform development for Linux, Mac and Windows
  • Texture Atlas and Layer enhancement for cpp targets
  • Integrated and robust Tween System
  • Access to OpenFL native extensions
  • Compile to Mobile and Desktop targets with native code through OpenFL
  • Impressive Native Performance using GPU accelerated drawTiles implementation on cpp targets
  • A powerful debugger with a console as well as an advanced logging system
  • A vibrant community that keeps updating the engine and adding new features to it
