Do you have a junior high / high school kid that you want to get interested in programming? Yes? Then stop what you’re doing, download GameMaker (for Windows or Mac), and order this book!My 13 year old son and I have nearly finished working our way through this book over his summer vacation. All of the examples turn into compelling, fully playable games. While the learning curve will appear to stretch to the horizon, it’s a gentle steady slope, with fun and results at each stage. The majority of...
Okay, but it needed some more detail in some areas. A lot of what it was telling me to do got somewhat confusing, especially towards the end. It was helpful overall, though. At least YouTube exists and helped me figure out what dilemmas I had when the book was unclear.
This book is a must if you wish to learn how to use game maker, as well as understanding some basic concepts of game design. The book is organized so that each three chapters you'll learn how to use game maker program, the forth all be a game design lesson based on what you did in the previous chapters. It is cleverly organized to help you grasp how to make games.
This is a good book to read if you want to get into game development. Game maker 7 is a good program to use if you want to start designing. It could get confusing at times, but this book tells you everything you need to get started.Such as basic codes,sprites,rooms,artificial intelligence,etc.If you want to learn how to design games without spending a fortune, get this book!
While this book was written with a previous version of GameMaker in mind (version 6.1 comes on the companion disk), most of it works just fine with GameMaker Studio, and with a little adjustment I was able to get everything working fine.A good introduction text for getting you started with GameMaker.
This is a great book for Game Maker, it is very outdated, but the GML structure and examples are amazing. I wish they would update the references to fit GMS, but it is easy enough to find solutions on the internet.
I give it a big 4 outta 5 stars. It would have got 5 but the program version is out dated so the book doesn't work without a lot of help on the most recent versions of GameMaker.
I loved this!
can i read this book?
Really useful book for those using Game Maker to develop computer games. Lots of script examples that I was able to use in the game development class that I recently completed.
Well, I was able to make a crappy game out of this~! Anyone who wants to program videogames should defiantly take a gander at this descriptive book. It makes making games a walk through the park.
