Overview

Tired of searching for memory leaks? Bored with tracking down pointers that point to nothing? Here's the book that brings the fun back to writing Macintosh programs. Sex, Lies, and Video Games exposes you to the techniques of producing games on the Macintosh - games with captivating animation and objectionable sounds. You don't need any previous game programming experience, or an extensive background in graphics or sound programming, just an ability to write a simple program that involves windows, menus, and other interface elements. In a light-hearted, unintimidating style, Bill Hensler explores the ins and outs of arcade-style programming in C and C++, introducing basic game theory, animation, sound, and interaction techniques. Along the way you'll learn the arcane lore of game programming, including sprite blitting, off-screen and on-screen animation, sprite cels and directing sprite movement, and ins and outs of producing sounds within your games. You'll also learn how to put it all together in the full-blown arcade game that's included on the enclosed disk. Now all Macintosh programmers can satisfy their secret desire to become game programming mavens.
