About the Book

Phaser III Game Starter Kit Collection (2nd Edition) is a hands-on guide for making browser games using Phaser versions 3.15+ Gaming Frameworks. This book is the entire collection of single chapters available from Amazon. It delves into the greatest classical game mechanics techniques -- 16+ examples. All written in a fun and friendly style with completed projects and open-ended exercises that encourage you to build and to include your own game assets and features. You’ll also download supporting tools to classify the book’s snippets and add your own modification.


Phaser III Game Starter Kit Collection contains several sections. It start with an Introduction into game perspective, modes, genres, workstation set-up and generation tools. Part I demonstrates basic game mechanisms using Phaser. Each chapter is a separate game mechanic for Phaser III in this volume! This is a reference book; simply turn to the game chapter you'd like to create. In a matter of hours, you will have a working game prototype for that game mechanics using the Game Design System™ -- fully explained in Phaser III Game Design workbook (4th edition). You then add your own artwork and additional game features; over the next few days, you have your own completed game ready to deploy in the "apps" stores. I consider this a joint effort. You might consider this a joint effort: I am your game programmer and you are the game designer, artist and marketer.


Phaser Game Starter Kit Collection (a sister volume to this one) is similar to this book's Part II but all the tutorials in that volume are written in Phaser v2.x.x in a second separate volume. Part IV is a massive collection of 59+ Flash ActionScript games just waiting for you to transpile into Phaser III. Part V is an excerpt from Phaser Multiplayer Gaming Systems; it holds all the starter kits essentials for multiplayer games using web sockets.

You’ll find detailed working examples, with dozens of illustrations and many concepts you can freely apply to your own gaming projects. All the source code annotations enhance the book’s explanation.
