5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction to Gamemaker, 11 July 2013
This book is a thorough and carefully written volume on using Gamemaker Studio to create HTML5 2D games. The book is well structured and takes the reader from setting up the workspace, right through to the process of publishing games. The book initially introduces the reader to the modus operandi of Gamemaker before moving onto a series of game projects, which, between them, cover most of the features that Gamemaker offers to its users, including advanced features like particle effects and the physics engine. Each chapter deals with one complete game, each one building on the experience gained from having completed the game in previous chapter. The reader is walked through the process of completing each game project but crucially, includes some explanation about why things are done, which aids true learning. The textual descriptions are supplemented by screenshots in colour. Source code, which includes images and sound files, is also available which can be downloaded from the publisher's website.

This is one of the better books I have seen that deals with the increasingly popular area of 2d game production and I can therefore highly recommend it.

Good, well written book that introduces you easily to GameMaker: Studio, taking you through the problems of creating HTML5 content, and how to implement some analytics and social features. Good read.
