Do you have a brilliant idea for a game, but lack the skills and know-how to produce it? Do you want to know the professional techniques used by game developers worldwide? Do you want to be able to create “real” games using game physics and artificial intelligence? If so, this is the book you’ve been waiting for. Join game developer Kevin O’Flaherty as you learn the riveting mechanics of game development with Python. You’ll learn how to create an exciting space action game, with obstacles to avoid and intelligent enemies to fight. Dozens of code samples and engaging lab exercises are provided, specially designed to help you retain everything you learn. This book utilizes the programming language Python, one that has clear coding conventions. However, the language you use doesn’t really matter- you’ll be learning how to develop games, and the concepts this book covers can be further applied to any programming language you desire. If you are serious about learning the techniques pros use to develop games, this book is definitely for you!
Well written, with ease of use and understanding for both the novice programmer and advanced programmer. Step for step guidance through various stages of game development with Chapter review and lab exercises. Practical tips for correct steps and development of the game throughout each chapter and also information on variations and programming tips to make your own games. Great read, well developed some slight errors were found (image numbers in chapter 1 did not match text) Also a few typos were noted, but all in all I recommend this book for all aspiring programmers and programmers who have considered making games with Python and Pygame. Disclaimer (I did receive this as a Beta review) However I have done the exercises and look at the labs and its really good.
