Description de l'ouvrage

3 septembre 2010

Get Started Fast with iOS Game Programming

 

Since the launch of the App Store, games have been the hottest category of apps for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. That means your best chance of tapping into the iPhone/iPad “Gold Rush” is to put out a killer game that everyone wants to play (and talk about). While many people think games are hard to build, they can actually be quite easy, and Learning iOS Game Programming is your perfect beginner’s guide. Michael Daley walks you through every step as you build a killer 2D game for the iPhone.

 

In Learning iOS Game Programming, you’ll learn how to build a 2D tile map game, Sir Lamorak’s Quest: The Spell of Release (which is free in the App Store). You can download and play the game you’re going to build while you learn about the code and everything behind the scenes. Daley identifies the key characteristics of a successful iPhone game and introduces the technologies, terminology, and tools you will use. Then, he carefully guides you through the whole development process: from planning storylines and game play all the way through testing and tuning.

 

Download the free version of Sir Lamorak’s Quest from the App Store today, while you learn how to build the game in this book.

  

Coverage includes 

  • Planning high-level game design, components, and difficulty levels
  • Using game loops to make sure the right events happen at the right time
  • Rendering images, creating sprite sheets, and building basic animations
  • Using tile maps to build large game worlds from small reusable images
  • Creating fire, explosions, smoke, sparks, and other organic effects
  • Delivering great sound via OpenAL and the iPhone’s media player
  • Providing game control via iPhone’s touch and accelerometer features
  • Crafting an effective, intuitive game interface
  • Building game objects and entities and making them work properly
  • Detecting collisions and ensuring the right response to them
  • Polishing, testing, debugging, and performance-tuning your game 

Learning iOS Game Programming focuses on the features, concepts, and techniques you’ll use most often—and helps you master them in a real-world context. This book is 100% useful and 100% practical; there’s never been an iPhone game development book like it!

 

Praise for Learning iOS Game Programming

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A great book for learning about games programming 21 septembre 2010
Par Gavin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Having nearly finished the book I thought it would be a good idea to write a review.

Reading the last review I felt even more compelled to write my own. The last reviewer really hasn't got a clue about what this book is about! He tries to pitch it as a book that covers many different technologies in great detail and fails. There is a note on the first page of chapter 2 that tells that totally contradicts what he says.

Note
It is not intended that this book will teach you how to develop in Objective-C or C or teach you everything you need to know about the other technologies in their own right; there are many excellent books and online resources that cover OpenGL and OpenAL in greater detail. We will however cover these topics in enough detail to allow you to understand why we are using them and how.

Thats what I love about this book! It tells you how to write an entire game from start to finish and doesn't bore you with incredibly complex algorithms or low level code or the ins and outs of every technology.

As for the game engine you write, it's very modular so you can include only the bits you need in your game. I wanted to recreate the JetPack game I played when I was younger. With this book I'm well on the way. It's saved me a huge amount of time trying to learn from other resources on the net.

Their forum and blog is quite active too, I've posted a few questions and they've answered promptly.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 This is why computer books used to come with CDs 23 novembre 2010
Par Brian Connors - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
One thing to be very clear about: this book is largely about tile and sprite-based games, a la Legend of Zelda. It includes a fair bit of information about optimization and the like (the messaging overhead involved in the Objective-C runtime can slow you down, so dropping to straight C is not a bad idea sometimes). The instructions are reasonably clear, although the selection of development tools required is rather extensive. This is part of the problem -- with the increased amount of broadband internet access out there, computer book publishers have come to the conclusion that they don't need to include software with the books. A lot of the software in this book is already obsolete and not supported by its original authors, and some of it is Web-only, making them rather poor choices for any kind of professional development.

However, the book does as advertised -- walks you through the steps of creating a basic game, while giving you enough background to understand what's going on along the way. And that, really, is all you need. Just beware that it might not be very useful a year or two from now.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Lots of errors 2 février 2011
Par James M. Hunter, Jr. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat authentifié par Amazon
Poorly edited. Many of the text references to the code use the wrong method names or quote the wrong lines of code altogether. It is absolutely essential to download the source code; there were many occasions where I found it necessary to look at more of the source than was printed in the book to understand what the text was saying. If you are willing to spend the time to sort out these problems, the book is otherwise not bad. The design of the game engine seems solid. The reader definitely needs to have at least a passing acquaintance with Objective C to understand the book. I am revising my previous 2-star review to 3 stars since the book is definitely useful in spite of its flaws. This review is based on the Kindle edition.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Get the source 27 mars 2011
Par J. Wiest - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
I can't believe some recent reviews don't mention it, but if you are using the most recent version of XCode the OpenGL template is completely different from the one described in the book. If you're new to it, you'll be lost immediately. The solution is to download the source code and start from Chapter 3, after that it should be good. It does make me wonder though whether I've learned an obsolete way of doing things that won't be supported going forward...

All that aside, it's a good book. I learn best by doing, and this book covers all the doing you'll need, including things you need to know but aren't necessarily related to IOS or programming, such as sprite maps, fonts, etc.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 great guide for experienced programmers interested in game development 29 octobre 2010
Par audrey - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
This is a well-organized, well thought out guide to writing game apps for the iPhone. It's a "beginner" 's guide to writing computer games for those who already know Objective-C, C, Xcode and Interface Builder and have programming experience; so it's more for someone who is already writing iPhone apps but hasn't ever done a game before; it's not for true beginners. That said, the author presents a personal and personable introduction to game design. This part could be read by anybody interested in game design, even beginners. It's a good intro to concepts such as lives, health, storyline, etc. Further chapters are:

Terminology, Technology, and Tools
(Xcode and OpenGL)
The Game Loop
Image Rendering
Sprite Sheets
Animation
Bitmap Fonts
Tile Maps
The Particle Emitter
Sound
User Input
The Game Interface
Game Objects and Entities
Collision Detection
Putting It All Together

In addition, there's a free RPG called Sir Lamorak's Quest that you download and play, and as the book progresses, you are analyzing and building this very game.

This is incredibly well done, and you have to give the author credit for going the extra mile to include a game and letting you look under the hood. This is a complete project with a friendly manual.

Personally, I don't have enough programming to actually write the code, but I've still enjoyed the book immensely. As a longtime gamer, I learned a lot about game design. Great job!
