iOS Game Development Course Testimonials
I love playing Candy Crush Saga! Well having said that, I am a computer programmer and have been planning to explore the Application Gaming market for quite some time. I have recently completed couple of iOS course here namely the basic course and social media integration course, but am more interested in developing games. So when I found this course I decided to do it. To my surprise this course turned out not only about coding but it taught me how to get prepared for making a game and team building and planning the game. In a nut shell it taught me the managerial aspects also of game making. So Now I can comfortably think of developing a Gaming Application and market it by myself.
This course has seriously opened my eyes regarding Game Development for Apple iPhones and iPads. I always wanted to develop a gaming Application but never quite approached the subject holistically. And coding concepts apart I had no clue how to approach a game development project. This tutorial has taught me how to constructively go about making a gaming App for iPhone and iPad. I can think now more holistically than before. The technical concepts too have been outlined clearly and is easy to understand. I will totally recommend this course.
This training can be called a definitive guide to game development for iOS. More than the technicalities I loved the way the instructor has designed this course. Being a layman rather a laywoman! I had no idea about how to go about developing games for any mobile devices. I though am in the IT programming field but I lacked the hands on approach to mobile game making that has been taught here. From concepts regarding Victory Mechanism to Graphics Development and Colour Theories everything has been covered here. This course is not only about coding for games its about how to approach a game making project and execute it.
I am a full-fledged gamer. I just love games. I by profession am a java developer and have developed some games for Android after doing the Android specific courses here. I wanted to move on to iOS so searched and landed on this course. Now what I got here totally opened my eyes and helped me to relook at the world of games development and not iOS in particular. I mean whatever I learnt here has helped me to be a better game developer. And not only for iOS. Now I can think of gaming Apps more efficiently and my approach to how to go about game development has been cleared here. So I am really grateful that I did this course. This course has two interesting case studies on Flappy Birds and Candy Crush Saga and those are very interesting for us to study as it gives us an idea about real games out there. I loved the lectures of character development and gaming environment development, the importance of Graphics and Colours also have been well lectured on here.
