Is there any sense in creating a 2D game in 2019 using Animate and AS3?  Or maybe I'd better use a different 2D game engine.

I mean 'top view' game for PC desktop and mobile device, with a lot of 2d graphics.

A few years ago I did a lot of flash games and I like Flash technology.

Lately I've done performance tests at Animate, and there was a big FPS loss when I scrolled screen with graphics.

if you already know animate and as3 and no other languages, maybe.

if you don't know animate and as3, no.

but fps problems aren't animate/as3 problem especially for air if correctly handled.

As I mentioned, a few years ago I did a lot of Flash games and I know other languages,

I wanted to use AS3 knowledge to make a 'top view' tactic game but now

there is a FPS loss when I scrolled screen (world map) with PNG graphics.

Of course, there are no problems when it will be very simple graphics.

the fps problem can usually be mitigate by enabling cacheAsBitmap for movieclips/graphics that don't undergo bitmap changes.

Unity. C# is pretty easy to pickup if you're good with AS3 and Unity is so much more performant than Flash is.
