Book Description:

Monkey is a programming language and toolset that allows its user to develop modern 2D games easily for mobile and other platforms like iOS, android, html5, FLASH, OSX, Windows and XNA. With Monkey you can create best selling games in a matter of weeks, instead of months.

Monkey Game Development Beginner’s Guide provides easy-to-follow step by step instructions on how to create eight different 2D games and how to deploy them to various platforms and markets.

Learning about the structure of Monkey and how everything works together you will quickly create eight classical games and publish them to the modern app markets. Throughout the book you will learn important game development techniques like collision detection, handling player input with mouse, keyboard or touch events and creating challenging computer AI. The author explains how to emit particle effects, play sound and music files, use sprite sheets, load or save high-score tables and handle different device resolutions.
