I dont know whether this is the right place to comment something about gameplay. But since many avid programmers might peer here for game development help they might probably read this.
I so realized that we keep making Flash actionscript games and then start looking at the fps going straight down the bottleneck. Sometimes even as simple as a huge background goes down with utter disgrace. We wonder how come other games can accomplish what Flash is not able to reach up to. Trust me Flash is faster.
Many top notch 3d games go full screen, and sometimes changes the resolution to 640x480 so as to work hassle free.
Secondly they run fullscreen and require that any other apps not run alongside which would otherwise slower the game.
Now flash games run in the teeny weeny browser based plugin whereas 3d games use opengl and directx installed on the computer. Various sites might be open at the same time while you will be playing a flash game.
I think personally we should provide system requirements of the game before game play such as please shutdown all other browser windows, applications before continuing so that we dont have frozen animations during gameplay.
Flash does justice when you find a browser non responsive before gameplay. Probably Adobe air might have something in stock for future in preparing offline games where we could make use of the file system or access hardware in future.
Flash would have been way more ahead if some weirdos wouldnt have made viruses with them.
Unlike other 3d game development software that contains libraries and loads of handlers to manage memory buffers, accessing OpenGL and/or DirectX to trap execution of keys, connect to the graphics card and utilizing them to perfection.
I think Flash would do much better with a more precomposed set of trusted gaming support files that should be installed on a one time basis on a users computer to enable Flash 3D gaming or mega Flash enabled websites.
So for now the perfect game recipe would be a small stage sized game which goes fullscreen to cover up the area and be in control. No hiccups, no more heavy backgrounds required that flash cant handle anymore, no time lapse and better fps. All the best.
