5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 23 Dec 2010
This review is from: Level Up!: The Guide to Great Video Game Design (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I got this as my 10 year son has just discovered Scratch.

It is a really really good book. You don't need to be technical or actually be wanting to write video games for this book to be a winner! It is clearly set out, concise, well written and full of explanations, tips and words of wisdom. It is not a technical (programming) book; it doesn't mention software as far as I could see. What it does do is take you through the process of designing a good game and this it does with wisdom and wit. It is very good at setting out that good games are not just about good technology; there are lots of other things to be done to create your game before you even put finger to keyboard. In fact I think it would be a very good book for aspiring writers, film makers and even entrepreneurs to read as much of the common sense practical advice would transfer across to all these areas. This book will not become redundant with the next upgrade to your software or technological innovation, it transcends all theses things. It is a book for Nerds to help them with the bits they find difficult (ie the non tech stuff) and it is a book for NonNerds as it shows you how to create a computer came without getting bogged down ion the tech stuff!! Fantastic
