Advanced Object And Character Control

  • Rex van der Spuy


You now have all the skills you need to build a wide variety of games, but there’s still much more you’ll want to learn. In this chapter, we’ll take a look at the following useful techniques you’ll need to know to get started on your own professional-level game design projects:
  • Using easing for smooth motion

  • Controlling game characters with the mouse

  • Moving objects in the direction of their rotation

  • Firing bullets in all directions

  • Learning basic enemy artificial intelligence (AI): following, running away, and firing bullets in the direction of the player

  • Complex player-controlled objects: a spaceship, a mouse-controlled platform character, a car, and a tank
