This book should not have been allowed to be published. It should be entered in the annual 'Worse Computer Manual' contest. Some of the written procedures when followed to the letter, do not work on the software. When you go to the software developer's website for answers on how to get things running, you are essentially on your own. Unfortunately I cannot return the book as I had to break the CD seal in order to find out that the software does does work as intended. I wasted my money , don't waste yours on this garbage. I would give it a Zero Star rating with no hesitation.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book explains how to make games with a program called 'The Game Factory'. This program is very buggy, while easy to use, it is not very powerful. The games I wrote, ran very slowly. Visual game design has a long way to go. This book is not woth the price, as there is relativley little useful information.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
