Learn Game Development with Cocos2D
The Cocos2D for iPhone game engine is the premier 2D game engine for iOS and Mac OS X 2D game developers. It’s no secret that sometimes it can be a tough nut to crack. I’m Steffen, book author, blogger, game developer and nutcracker.
What is it that you want to know?
- Could Cocos2D be any easier?
It certainly can be, with Kobold2D and KoboldTouch! Without it, you’re hardcore.
- Where can I find more advanced Cocos2D tutorials?
Read my iDevBlogADay articles, most of them Cocos2D tutorials on advanced subjects.
- Is there source code for that?
Of course, it’s all in the LearnCocos2D github repository.
- What if I like to hear your voice?
Uhm, if you don’t mind broken accents and the occasional incoherent rambling then listen to the Cocos2D Podcast with me and Mohammad Azam. (iTunes)
- Where can I watch and learn about Cocos2D?
Check out the featured channels on the LearnCocos2D Youtube Channel and view my LearnCocosTV Show & Tell progress reports.
- Can I get an answer from you personally?
Certainly! But due to the amount of questions I get I’m limiting it to the KoboldTouch member helpdesk and Cocos2D related questions on Stackoverflow.com.
- Where can I find more tutorializing Cocos2D devs like you?
Here’s a quick list: Ray Wenderlich, Mohammad Azam, Alex Curylo, Johann Döwa, Bucky Roberts, iPhoneGameTutorials and many more.
- I wouldn’t mind spending a few $$$ for code and education, but where?
Try my Line-Drawing Starterkit source code, my Learn Cocos2D book, the various Affiliate Products I help to sell and of course KoboldTouch with the Essential Cocos2D reference documentation.
- What’s your affiliation with Cocos2D?
Other than being an avid Cocos2D user, fan and critic: none.
- Can I hire you?
Nope, sorry. I have my hands full working full time on my own projects (see above). I’m still waiting for that clone I ordered …
