This review is from: Programming 2D Games (Hardcover)
This book is good for beginners and intermmediate programmers and allows you to start creating a game very quickly. This being because programming 2D games is less challenging than 3D, and in my opinion a better place to start. Other books tend to focus on 3D programming which requires a lot more knowledge and can be a bit overwhelming for beginners. Whereas programming in 2D allows you to be more focused on creativity. I like this book and I like 2D games and once you've got to a good level understanding the mechanics of a 2D game I think the transition to 3D should be less daunting.
