|Classic Game Design (Mercury Learning)|
|Friday, 26 July 2019|
In this book you’ll go step by step using modern, free software tools such as Unity to create five games in the classic style, inspired by retro favorites like: Pong, Breakout, Space Invaders, Scramble, and Pac-Man. Author Franz Lanzinger shows how the roots of modern video game design lie in the classics of the ’70s and ’80s. The book shows how to make your own games, putting in your own color graphics, adjusting the scoring, coding the AI, and creating the sound effects.
Author: Franz Lanzinger
