Everything began when I decided to make a small flash shooter. That was why I constructed a weapon whose shots had to be duplicated. Although a lot of problems arose, after working hard and somewhat by accident, I put together the first version of Sulaa. It was a “form duplicator” and consisted of a simple point. Soon this point was being pursued by several duplicated points which were constantly getting bigger and smaller. Sulaa had been born. Unfortunately, I was then forced to put the project on ice for a year. A few months ago, I began working on the project again. I wanted to use the possibilities provided by Flash and add diverse functions which I would program myself. All in all, it was a huge but quite enjoyable task. I added functions, then the pursuit of the mouse and different forms, etc. What made it such a huge job were the many complications that arose. For instance, the third item on the menu could not be finished and is now in beta status. Sulaa is for me a successful project and inviting further expansion.
