eBook Description:

Beginning C++ Game Programming, 2nd Edition: Get to grips with programming techniques and game development using C++ libraries and Visual Studio 2019

The Beginning C++ Game Programming, Second Edition is updated and improved to include the latest features of Visual Studio 2019, SFML, and modern C++ programming techniques. With this book, you’ll get a fun introduction to game programming by building five fully playable games of increasing complexity. You’ll learn to build clones of popular games such as Timberman, Pong, a Zombie survival shooter, a coop puzzle platformer and Space Invaders.

The book starts by covering the basics of programming. You’ll study key C++ topics, such as object-oriented programming (OOP) and C++ pointers, and get acquainted with the Standard Template Library (STL). The book helps you learn about collision detection techniques and game physics by building a Pong game. As you build games, you’ll also learn exciting game programming concepts such as particle effects, directional sound (spatialization), OpenGL programmable shaders, spawning objects, and much more. Finally, you’ll explore game design patterns to enhance your C++ game programming skills.

  • Set up your game development project in Visual Studio 2019 and explore C++ libraries such as SFML
  • Explore C++ OOP by building a Pong game
  • Understand core game concepts such as game animation, game physics, collision detection, scorekeeping, and game sound
  • Use classes, inheritance, and references to spawn and control thousands of enemies and shoot rapid-fire machine guns
  • Add advanced features to your game using pointers, references, and the STL
  • Scale and reuse your game code by learning modern game programming design patterns

By the end of the book, you’ll have gained the knowledge you need to build your own games with exciting features from scratch.
