Well, it’s about time I released another application right? If anyone has ever played Bloom on the iphone, I’m sure you’ll recognize my port from iphone to table.

If you’re not familiar with bloom, it’s a very simple music creation application. Press anywhere on the screen to create circles that grow and ‘bloom.’ As they fade out and re-appear, they play a note. The note is based on the x-axis. As you move right, the notes go higher.

How to use:

-Press on screen (mouse, touch, multi-touch)
-Rollover/touch/click already created circles to remove them and their sound
-Press the upper left ‘clear’ button to clear all circles and sounds on screen.

The source folder should include everything you need to run the application. You don’t need to copy anything into your current AS3 directory. I’ve commented the Main.as file very well and it should give a good look into making simple applications with the AS3 Touch API. smile

DOWNLOAD: HERE

Thanks to Christian for the background color tweening effect.

If you are in the business of porting iPhone apps to MT tables, Labyrinth would be a nice app to do. It just need some accelerators but it really would be great to play the game with one person on every corner of the multi touch table wink

Thanks guys smile

lesouvage: I’m not too much in the business of porting iphone apps hehe. I just thought this would be a good/simple one to make. I have labyrinth on my iphone, but it’d be weird to play without the accelerometers I think.

Wow!  I haven’t seen the original iPhone one, but this is really cool!  I could play this for hourssmile

Does it use Pre-Recorded sounds, or does AS3 have some built in mechanism for emitting sounds?

I am more then willing to to test your Multi-Touch programs on Linux, PM me if you have something.  If you’re looking for something faster then AS3 and Easier then C, try Python!

Thanks xelapond smile

It’s using prerecorded sounds. You can see the mp3s in the download package. Flash does have some real-time audio generation now, but haven’t played with that yet.

@ Josue Ibanez: good point. I’ll have to make a resize function so the background resizes. The whole thing should still be clickable, only the colored background will be original size before the fullscreen.

Thanks mattl, jordanh, aidil smile
