Description

Have you ever wanted to know how to make your own games for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch? It is easier than you think. Lost in 8bit is a perfect hands-on game example to start beginning game programming.

Defend the ameb station against never ending attacks of angry pixel monster hordes. Shoot your way to freedom and stay alive as long as the amebs are feeding your space station with energy.

This great and thrilling 80ies revival game features harsh 8bit sounds and the wildest pixel mashup ever seen for a while on screen.

The complete source code can be downloaded from the internet - additionally you can find an easy to understand start-up tutorial. By making your way through the code you can learn how to:

* move sprites around the screen

* handle touch events for user interaction

* play polyphone effect sounds

Learn common game development techniques like:

* collison detection

* manage multiple game objects

* state machines

The game is programmed with straight Objective-C using standard API's available in the free iPhone SDK, e.g. AVFoundation, UIKit, Core Graphics / Quartz 2D.

Source code and game play are kept as simple as possible. It will be easy for you to customize Lost in 8bit to your needs: You can exchange the disgusting pure 8bit sound effects by your own high quality music or replace the odd pixel style by smooth up-to-date graphics or adapt the game logic to be easier or harder - just as you like.

Or you can make a complete new game out of it!

Be sure to also check out the Ocea Game Engine - available on App Store! OGE offers more advanced concepts and high performance sound and graphics for professional development!

Every customer will get intense email support!!! (Our servers were shortly down due to a spam attack in the past - this has been fixed. You will get 100% answer on each question!)

Waste of money

:
All this app is info on how to download the source code. It looks like you can edit the game when you open the app but this isn't what they advertise. I've downloaded many apps and I'm a app developer but this is the worst. Save your money. A web page would have more programming info for you. All they website shows is their name. Again save your money.

4/5 stars

Good game for the aspiring programmer..

:
I learned alot from the quick
Tutorial, and I can say that I had fun with the source code. I learned you need a Macintosh to edit xprojectfiles, but I just downloadedthe SDK for Linux and got the same effect. The game itself Is difficult but fun, and I can see myself working with this in the future. It's good for 99€

5/5 stars

Good app

:
Works well and teaches you alot about how to program iPod 8-bit games like brick breaker.
