Space Viking is the demo game that you learn how to create in the
Learning Cocos2D book by Rod Strougo and Ray Wenderlich, published by
You play as Ole the Viking, frozen in time, and awaken in an Alien
planet. You must fight off the alien hordes and find a way back to
your native land and time.
The book shows you how to build this game step-by-step, which
demonstrates how to program the following features:
* Moving a character with joystick controls
* Animating characters
* Enemies and basic AI
* Making side-scrolling levels
* Making a cart racing game with realistic game physics
* Making a platformer jumping game
* And much more!
This game is meant for people who are interested in learning game
programming on the iPhone, at this time
only sample levels are included.
Awesome companion app for the book!
This app is an excellent way to demonstrate the power of Cocos2D along with the accompanying libraries such as Box2D and Chipmunk. So far I've been loving the book and about to start part 4-> Physics Engines which I'm really excited about!
Amazing app and game! Thanks Rod and Ray! For those of you who think this game is bad is because this app wasn't meant to be the next top downloaded app; it was made to teach Cocos2D!
Thanks again Rod and Ray,
This book is fantastic!
The people rating this as 1 star obviously haven't read the book, and probably aren't programmers. The book is an excellent guide for helping you learn the cocos2d framework.
If you complain about the game itself being bad, then you are completely missing the point. It's like complaining that your first driving lesson isn't teaching you how to do doughnuts, drifting and 2-wheel driving.
This is a development book project...
For people that don't understand this game, it's the companion project for an iOS game development book. So yes, the game itself is kind of lame; which makes it the perfect match for a beginner's project. So while this may stink out loud to someone looking for a game, it's a pretty cool goal to build for yourself if you've gotten the development book.
