OO code. You write good clean OO code and are familiar with design patterns, but you're not slavish, and can be creative in organizing your code to achieve your goals.
You know when to use a pre-existing library to accomplish your goals, and when to roll your own. You are also comfortable adhering to coding standards that may not be your personal preference.
Bundling/Loading Assets. You can think intelligently about bundling assets for ad hoc run time loading. You're familiar with all the gotchas associated with instantiating loaded assets (application domains, etc).
You can work with minimal specs. You love to iterate. You know how to make something "just work" quickly, and you know when to refactor to optimize and abstract away redundancies in your code.
