Dan Nelson has worked on his Cocos2D based game BATAK Duel (view it on iTunes) for 5 months. He received dozens of requests from fellow developers to share his source code. About 3 weeks ago he made the game’s source code available for purchase, for $297.

The feature list is quite impressive:

– A Complete iPhone Game Framework, can easily be customised for your next game!
– Seamless OpenFeint integration
– Learn how to set up OpenFeint achievements
– How to set up a menu system with multiple sections
– How to save and restore user settings
– How to implement a Singleton object for global variable support
– Discover how to create Fire and Smoke Effects
– How to set up a visually impressive ‘opponent ladder‘
– See how to use Particle systems to create superb visual effects (for example, a huge storm with torrential rain!)
– How to detect when a fast moving object has been touched by the player
– How to play multiple sound effects simultaneously
– How to play and pause music
– How to pause and resume the game
– How to handle the input of player ‘unlock codes‘ using a UITextField control
and a super cool transparent pop up keyboard!
– How to set up a smooth scrolling ‘Credits‘ section

Do you have something to share with the Cocos2D community? I haven’t received enough submissions to fill all the days until Xmas, although I do have enough links to post one each day, I’d rather post a link to your website or blog post.

I very much enjoy the learning process, the pushing of boundaries (mine and yours and that of technology), having the freedom to pursue whatever is on my mind, to boldly program what no one has programmed before, and to write about what I've learned. Help me help you by browsing the products in the Learn Cocos2D Store.
