The book begins with some tips from the author to design a game that everyone
will want to play and how to plan for it. Then we move on to setting up
GameSalad and building projects in it. Once the tool is set up, the book moves
on to creating and working with sprites.
The next section of the book includes building a whole ball drop game including gravity, touch controls, triggers and particle effects. The second game that the book builds is the space defender. It includes building an interesting user interface, enemies, explosions, space ship movements and testing this game on iDevices.
The third game is Metal Mech. This chapter includes sound effects, particle explosions, and numerous enemies, setting up Game Center Leader boards, and getting ready for App store. The last section of the book discusses how to get started with developing for iDevices.
