Yes PureMVC is viable for developing games. It is viable for almost any large scale project that you will have.
That being said, you might also want to check frameworks like PushButton or Flixel, for rendering complicated graphics and maybe some of the game logic.
PureMVC does not handle the work with complex display list.

eliatlas,

Tnx for the reply. I'll take a look at the frameworks you mentioned and see how I can organize my thoughts for my game.

PureMVC combined with the StateMachine Utility is really awesome for games. I built Dungeon Joe for the Blackberry PlayBook with it and it was quite enjoyable. But that was a strategy game. You might think that for fast action games the framework would be too cumbersome, but it is actually very fast at what it does, and it doesn't matter what the goal of your application is, if it has a model, a view, and business logic MVC is still a valid approach for separation of concerns.

Hi Cliff,

Thanks for the link, I'm impressed by the benchmark results of PureMVC.

I'll be taking on StateMachine Utility this time, as i did for the Pipes. I know its gonna be challenging at first, but fun nevertheless.

Hi,

 pureMVC is good for games.
 I myself made couple of huge projects with it.

The community around it is huge, and you will find support easily with other flash programmers, but... it's not the fastest option, and not the one that produces cleanest code.

 I am currentry investigating mvcExpress framework : http://bit.ly/wis7uO

I wonder how it compares with pureMvc.
