You heard that Flash is no longer being supported on newer Android devices! It is all going to move to HTML5 and flash app development.
That is 100% grade A bullshit.
The flash player is no longer being developed, because Adobe are focusing on AIR, making it so that creating native apps on Android and iOS with Flash easier and better.
In fact, the flash framework is so efficient at making games that a lot of people are using it in non-flash games. A lot of iPhone or just generally games made with C++ and such use Flash for animation. I believe that's how Castle Crashers handled their art and animation. Everything is vector, and the vector data is taken from SWF's and converted to raster data during loading.
Apparently Bioshock also has SWF files in their source, but I'm not 100% sure about that.
