There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. This book concentrates on 2D rather then 3D This book’s last chapters contain a small portion of 3D. I was away from it for a while, and got back into creating games. This book and the author is a genius. All the code is very easy to follow, he gives examples of everything you are doing.

So there progeamming none of that “dont worry about that code” he explains it all. After the reading of this book I was able to create the game “deal or proggramming deal”. This book is that good. I used no other references.

The author writes everything to where you can understand proramming and will have no problem at all knowing how and why every line of code works the way it does. Biggest reason why I love this book, and call myself a fan of this author is simple.

You get right to the point of why you purchased this book creating games.

There is no, “this is an rts game, this is an fps abaolute, this is a adventure game”. We go right into the reason you purchased the book, learning a bit about DarkBASIC and then jumping into creating small games, to include Pong.

This book is how authors should write game development books. One person found this helpful.

I am using it to teach my younger brothers how to program games and they are enjoying the book as well. As the title suggests, this is a book for beginners, anyone already familiar with programming will be able to glaze over at least half of the book and solely use the multimedia chapters of the book.

The only down side to the book is that it is a little dated, darkbaisc the coding examples are prorgamming, the chapters on the editor itself is completely inaccurate since the it has been enhanced over the past couple of years. Overall this book is a great buy for anyone interested in learning to program, especially if they are interested in game development. This book spent the majority of its content teaching you to create a worthless application that only displays a single line of text on a black background.


This programming language is capable of so much more. I could have summed up this books teachings into a single chapter leaving the remainder for other tops not touched on such as variables, graphics, file access, string manipulation formulas. This book is great if you want to produce a program with plain text responses on a black screen.

If you want anything more advanced you will need to look elsewhere. A ok book, I found it to be just ok in keeping me interested at times, but a good book for a beginner as a whole. This book helped me greatly in learning about Dark Basic. Trust me, that was my thoughts!

I get this book on DB Pro!
