Game Programming Algorithms and Techniques: A Platform-Agnostic Approach (Game Design)

By Sanjay Madhav

Game Programming Algorithms and methods is a close evaluation of a few of the vital algorithms and methods utilized in online game programming this present day. Designed for programmers who're acquainted with object-oriented programming and uncomplicated facts constructions, this ebook specializes in sensible suggestions that see genuine use within the online game industry.


Sanjay Madhav takes a special platform- and framework-agnostic procedure that might aid increase nearly any video game, in any style, with any language or framework. He offers the basic thoughts for operating with second and 3D photos, physics, synthetic intelligence, cameras, and masses more.


Each notion is illuminated with pseudocode that may be intuitive to any C#, Java, or C++ programmer, and has been subtle and confirmed in Madhav’s video game programming classes on the collage of Southern California. overview questions after each one bankruptcy aid solidify crucial thoughts ahead of relocating on.


Madhav concludes with an in depth research of 2 entire video games: a second iOS side-scroller (written in Objective-Cusing cocos2d) and a 3D PC/Mac/Linux tower security video game (written in C# utilizing XNA/ MonoGame). those video games illustrate a number of the algorithms and methods coated within the prior chapters, and the complete resource code is on the market at
