Awesome Game Creation is a book that really lives up to it's name. This book shows step by step how to create games and the software has unique programs like The 3D Gamemaker and Milkshape 3D. It works alongside the programs with ease, and is very easy to understand (due to the fact that am 12 years old with Regular math skills). Another thing I liked was that in certain parts you had to really think outside the box to solve problems. If there's one problem with Awesome Game Creation, it's that the software contains a lot of demo programs, So You'll have to shell out more money to buy full versions of the products. Overall, If you want to learn how to make games, this is a great starter. 5 stars.
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.
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.
You play games? You eat, drink, and sleep games? Now you wanna make your own game? This is the say all be all manual for creating games from a game designer / owner of one kick @ss game company. With this book and a little creativity you will be making your own kick @ss games in no time.
