    Whenever you have a graph search problem, A* is generally the best solution. As well as always producing an optimal path, it is very efficient compared to other methods.

    I am mainly against object pooling as a matter of principle because it has become a net performance loss in almost all other languages and instantiation is rarely even a minor bottleneck.

    Memory allocation and deallocation will always be slow processes, however in flash it won't be as much of an issue because it is both slow to begin with and has garbage collection.
