Ventura, California (PRWEB) December 3, 2007
lynda.com, the leader in self-paced digital media and design training, introduced ActionScript 3.0 Projects: Game Development today.
Adobe Certified Instructor Todd Perkins makes ActionScript fun in ActionScript 3.0 Projects: Game Development. He explains the principles of game design and development, then shows strategies for overcoming game-making challenges to create all kinds of games. Todd teaches developers how to deal with case sensitivity, create dynamically moving enemies, add event listeners, determine a win or loss in a game, and add additional features and artificial intelligence. Each set of tutorials covers how to build a game from scratch. Exercise files accompany the tutorials.
"Game development is an extremely hot career path, and learning it through Flash is a great way to get started with the principles and architecture issues. For existing Flash users, it's excellent for stretching your knowledge in a new direction. Our customers have been asking for this training for some time, so we know this is a resource many have been waiting for," says Lynda Weinman, CEO of lynda.com.
