5.0 out of 5 stars Fills a Void, 28 Aug 2012
This review is from: Swipe This!: The Guide to Great Touchscreen Game Design (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A pretty good stab at filling a bit of a void in the indie game developers market. Scott Rogers obviously has good experience and gives some valuable tips with a funny style that can easily be ignored if you are not into the humour*. There are no Earth shattering moments of realisation like in say The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses but the practical examples and real-life interviews do offer something you would struggle to find elsewhere and for this reason should find a place on a developers bookshelf especially if you are developing for the touchscreen market.

* The humour tends to occur in the footnotes which you soon learn to ignore if you're not into the funny stuff.
