Quick iPhone Game Development
An O'Reilly Breakdown
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Released: June 2011
Run time: 1 hour 46 minutes

Creating games for the iPhone might seem daunting, but in reality it can be quick and easy with Interface Builder. We'll build the game of Pong using animation, collision detection, and multitouch--all in just about 20 lines of code! We'll give our game a quick makeover by adding artwork and sound effects. The logic for detecting collisions is surprisingly simple, and once we handle the iPhone's multitouch capabilities you''ll have built a fully functional game.

    Comments about O'Reilly Media Quick iPhone Game Development:

    This video was absolutely awesome. It was exactly what I was looking for... I love the format of watching a professional at work while being interviewed by a inquisitive host. She asks all the right questions that an beginner/intermediate who is hungry to learn would ask. This interviewing style is far superior than just watching someone work alone. Sometimes you need to ask why something was done a certain way, or when should something be done, etc. etc. and that's what the host does extremely well. What a great series... I am thoroughly impressed! Oh, and the other bonus was it covers IOS 4 and Xcode 4 (Xcode 4's interface has changed and a lot of things were moved or integrated).
