  Normally it should not be a problem to learn Actionscript 3 if you already know Java and C#.

  Sadly Java and C# will be of little use here. Flash gaƱes require the actionscript language. Like the others said, AS3 is heavily recommended.

  I've learned Java and C# and yes, I have created a program with 2 languages.

  Then it shouldn't be that hard to learn Actionscript 3. Have you ever created a program with the 2 other programming languages? What are the languages? Java?

  I've already learned two object oriented programming languages so I've got that of the list.

  In order to make a flash game you have to learn Actionscript. I advise you to use Actionscript 3 as it is the newest and better. Official AS3 page (start with the fundamentals)
For the programs you need a IDE: an Integrated Development Environment. You have 2 choices:
1) Flash CC (a very expensive program)
2) FlashDevelop (an awesome free program)
There might be more, but they are less known and less documented, so harder to learn to work with it.

When you start making the game you also need images/sprites. So you'll need a graphics editing program. Search the net for good graphics programs. I for instance use Gimp 2.6, but some people use paint.net or others like photoshop. Such programs take some to get used to.

Before you go into all of this, I suggest you read something what programming languages are and how they work, especially object oriented programming.

  Hi, I would just like to know the tools to build a game,
the programming language I need to learn, what I need to have implemented, etc.
