Présentation de l'éditeur

The Essential Guide to Flash Games: Building Interactive Entertainment with ActionScript, is a unique book for Flash Game Developers. Rather than focusing on a bunch of low-level how-to material, this book dives straight in to building games. The book is divided into specific game-genre projects covering everything from old-classics such as a Missile Command-style game, to hot new genres such as tower defense.

Biographie de l'auteur

Steve Fulton and Jeff Fulton are twin brothers who have worked in the web game industry for the past 10 years. Together they have designed, programmed and developed over 200 Flash games of every imaginable genre for the corporate, indie and viral Flash game markets. The brothers run the popular and influential Flash/Retro game development site 8bitrocket.com. They update the site daily with news, tutorials, games, and musing about Flash and the viral Flash game world.

Excellent Book But VERY Poorly Edited 29 août 2010
Par David Brady - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This book has some excellent educational content. If you can get past a staggering amount of typographical errors (some of them in source code!), it is a fantastic resource. If you are familiar with programming and want to learn how to program Flash and Flex games, I highly recommend these authors.

Their editor, however, needs to be shot. There are words missing from sentences every few pages, typos in the source code, and function names that change each time they are referenced. There's even a paragraph (on page 125) explaining a snippet of source code from the previous section... but the previous section of code has been totally rewritten, so the paragraph is worse than meaningless, it's totally confusing. There is an Errata section on the authors' website, but it doesn't even begin to cover the errors in this book. It is painfully apparent that the code in the book was typed in as text and then tested and debugged later, as many examples are inconsistent or have obvious syntax errors.

If you are just starting out with programming I do NOT recommend this book UNLESS you download the accompanying source code. Otherwise you will spend too much time wondering why your program doesn't work when it's an error in the book itself.

I hate to give this a crappy review. I am learning a lot from this book and I *WANT* this book to be as great as its subject matter could be. If the authors release a Second Edition or even a corrected version, I'll be first in line to pick it up.

All that said, I still recommend this book. Their design principles are sound, and the code examples from their website actually work without any fussing or debugging. (There are some mispelled class names, but they are consistent, so the code DOES work.) If you are an experienced programmer who can spot typos in source code, and are patient with a debugger, the book will teach you exactly what you need to know to get your game off the ground.

In serious need of better proofing. 15 octobre 2010
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
On the positive: I am learning a lot from this book. The authors have an excellent approach to presenting the material, and at least for me, I feel the broad brush concepts they present, especially in organizing game code are very good. What is absolutely mind boggling is the number of typos in the constantly referenced source code. You are supposed to be building your code on previous exercises (good idea), however there are often changes to function and variable names, forcing you to debug code that is presented to you as an example. Perhaps it wouldn't be as glaring if they hadn't preceded every source sample in the book with the phrase 'we have highlighted the code that is different from that game.', when as it turns out there are often dozens of other subtle changes you'll need to catch yourself.

Inconsistent, or inaccurate information presented in source code presented as educational reference is a complete fail.

Highly recomended Guide To Flash Games 19 juillet 2010
Par Przemyslaw - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
First i must admit that I'm huge fan of [...] (Jeff and Steve Fulton's blog). It's great place for flash game developers, full of valuable tutorials and articles.Main goal of this book is to write reusable and professional ActionScript 3.0 game framework. To achieve this authors walk step by step through process of building 11 real-life games (ranging from arcade, puzzle to shooters). All source codes are avaliable for both platforms: Flash IDE and Flex (of course free to download through publisher website). First chapter cover some basic features. Introduce to main game loop (with states) and some game framework foundations. Of course it's based on some standard techniques (movie clips as actors, hitTestObject for collision detection, timeline for animations). Boring? Absolutely no! They develop two playable cool retro games just in 40 pages. Every next chapter brings more and more complex features to learn. To name a few:- tricky implementation of finite state machine pattern ( show how to manage flow of game with this states) - some free tools, that can extremely speeding up prototyping process- optimization by using tile sheets instead of individually bitmaps- sound management- deep description of "blitting" render method (explain when this method is important, and when is not - pages 233 - 238, is must read part). There is even a bit of history about blitting technique on 8-bit computers- xml based level designing- scrolling tile-based screens- pixel-level collision detectionFor those who wants to monetize theirs games there is great example of MochiAds system integration.In my opinion, it is the most valuable book about seriously flash games developing avalaible on the market. The most important thing: authors does not avoid complex techniques, they just explain problems on real-life game examples.Highly recomended!

If you like to code, this is for you! 14 août 2011
Par Shantul Nigam - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
First, I am only half way through this book (page 242) and so far I think this is the best flash game book out there because it covers both Flash and Flex. If you are new to Actionscript, they tell you very early on to get the Flash ActionScript 3.0 book for Flash and Flex (page 6). Basically, you need to be comfortable coding to go through this book. Second, you pretty much HAVE to get the source code. This is true no matter what for ANY code based book. If you don't you are doing yourself a disservice.

The best thing about this book is the source code. Go to the book's page on the publisher's site and download the code. You will refer to this over and over again. There are both code corrections, and versions for of the code for both the Flash and Flex code and yes, there are differences. they even have a specific download which helps you get started with Flex (Chapter 1 code). The way I have been going through this book is to read the chapter, type in the code and then make any corrections you need to make. Usually, I start with the book text and then open the source code for the Flex specific implementation. Also, they talk about FlashDevelop though they don't have a specific version for it.

One thing I did not expect was the tools that they tell you about which are critical for automating tasks like creating a levels or music and sound effect.

The only bad thing is that as you go on in the book, they split the code up into chunks with descriptions in between. Because the code (often for the same class) is fragmented, it can become difficult to follow. Again, with access to the source code, it is pretty easy to follow and review.

The book itself is good and the delivery was fast but. It seems like the book I got is an early edition. there's many mistakes and typos.
