See Tomeu's gnash Work:

The EatBoom activity is pretty easy to swap in your own swf content (just make sure it's not built requiring a very recent Flash, eg must work with Gnash). This is a trivial path to activities for any one who has developed in Flash, though it throws up issues of source visibility and localisation (there are some tricks to make this work reasonably well if any one is interested pushing on this path):
