Explore the Game Application Life Cycle

  • Lucas Jordan


There is more to a game than just the fun parts. Almost all of the games on the market, and definitely the big titles, involve multiple views and a reasonably complex life cycle. This chapter explores how to turn a simple game into a complete application. We will look at how a typical game organizes the different views that constitute it, including a Loading view, a Welcome view, a High Score view, and of course the game itself.
