2.0 out of 5 stars Programme examples did not work 16 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Have enjoyed writing simple programms in visual basic.net. Thought that this book would be a good addition so that I could write simple games. The book states that you do not need to understand VB fully as the book will explain during the text. First simple example worked ok the second did not run as there were some problems with the statements.

Sent an email to the website who suggested that I go to their forum page where help
would be found

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good book 27 Sep 2011
By Nightbreed - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is great straight from the beginning. The introduction gets you excited for the rest of the book. Over all the book shows you how to create a fully functional RPG engine for free. None of the tools used in the book require you to purchase them. The author walks you through step by step how to recreate the game. Not everything is covered, but you learn a lot for the size of the book. The engine it self is a pretty advanced 2D engine with plenty of room for customization and expansion. The book also makes a great companion to C# Game Programming for Teens. With the other book you can expand a little on the game adding dungeons with much of the code being similar its not too hard to rewrite it for one or the other. Just like the C# book it comes with many tools that you can use to customize the game without even writing new code. The only flaw I see in this book is it is a little fast paced for someone new to programming. Some sections you might have to reread to understand, but the author tries to make it simple for everyone. I suggest having at least some experience with visual basic to help you out. I have not complete the book but look forward to learning new things and expanding on the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good book, it does teach well 19 Feb 2013
By Angela C. Sherman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a programmer for over 30 years now, got started because my mother would not buy me a Video Game system (Atari 2600) so at the age of 12 I bought a Timex Sinclair and wrote my own games. This was very fun and rewarding even as a kid, now it has turned into a lucrative career. I bought this book so my kids can have the same experience. I have been going thru the book with them and I find the book rather basic (which is good), even thought it is sold as an intermediate book. I guess it is sold that way because it does not completly hold your hand as some basic books do, but I see this as very good because it early on gets the kids using VS's built in error checking to fix mistakes. Thank you Jonathan for making this book, it was just what I needed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Visual Basic Programming 15 Sep 2011
By John - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Seems to be a good book. My son is reading it and using it to write a video game. We had some problems downloading the 'source code' from the book, but I emailed the author and got a quick accurate response. I'm glad he helped us out, otherwise we would not have liked the book much at all. As it stands, it is a very useful book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific! 19 Jun 2013
By JTDk - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great starting point for those in our gaming camp and seems to be easier understood by teens than adults because they don't ask "why", Teens just want to know "how".

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book 15 Feb 2011
By ShaKeyJ100 - Published on Amazon.com

Fun working with designing functional games. Some things don't work right without minor adjustments, but it's better than having it spoon fed to you. We are using it in VB 2 in community college.
