Create Games with a Click of the Mouse!!! April 10 2006
By Paul Boland - Published on
Format: Paperback
I bought this book because I am interested in game development. This book looks at creating games with Clickteams fortcoming software development tool, The Games Factory 2 and MultiMedia Fusion 2. There is a demo of the software supplied on the CD that comes with the book so you don't have to wait for the software to ship (which it will soon) before you can follow the demos.

The book takes you through the creation of a number of games, from simple space invaders to complex platform games, all with a click of the mouse. Yes, you read that right, TGF 2 allows you to create any game in any genre using nothing but the mouse!! There is no complex code to write, no variables to set up, no arrays to initialise... If you can pick an option from a popup menu, you can create any games and applications you want.

The book takes you through the creation of these games in an easy to follow step by step format and the chapters cover everything from a look at TGF 2's interface to how to code your first game. There is also a discussion on gaming in general which will point you in the right direction and show you the Do's and Don't's.

A very easy to read book which is packed to bursting with information on game creation. And not a single line of coding in sight (as long as you don't count the expressions for performing maths ;) ).

Want to make games?

Excellent instruction book for beginning game makers April 15 2010

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a very informative book on the inside workings of how to use ClickTeam's programming products. It is a must read for anyone interested in creating click and drag programming for creating casual games. After reading this book I have much better knowledge of the inside workings of both The Game Factory and Multimedia Fusion the two progrmming products offered by ClickTeam. The author is a member of the ClickTeam development staff and provides useful insights for the novice as well as intermediate programmer. This is definitely a must read book for anyone using thes two products.

didn't get much use July 20 2008

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Unfortunately, I don't really know if this book is a good book or not. My son went off to tech camp last year to learn how to make video games. He came back all excited about his new found skills and continued to make games at home,so I bought him this book for Christmas. I don't even think he did more than scan through it and decide it was just too busy to take the time to read (he is a male and it was instructions). I definitely think it would be geared for a much older crowd (he was a very advanced 12yr old). Sorry I can't be more helpful than that.
