About the Book
This workbook is the new edition 4 -- a hands-on tutorial guide for Game Prototype creations using component object programming with an emphasis on Phaser v3.16+. The reason we delayed this book's publication was due to the massive rewrites coming in v3.15+ OCT 2018 and 100% features final made availability in v3.14.0 release scheduled for mid-October, 2018.
As of February 2017, this book was the first and only available tutorial for Phaser III and will continue to supplement version 3 as more framework features become available in v3.16+. Therefore, if you purchased this book from LeanPub.com, you will have a continually updated version on the latest Phaser III features.
Phaser v3.15+ examples will use our unique component object programming. This book delves into many of the great classic game mechanisms and design mechanics techniques. All written in a fun and friendly style with completed projects and open-ended exercises that encourage you to build your own game projects. You'll also download supporting tools to classify the book’s snippets and add your own modification.
You’ll find detailed working examples on the book's website 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. You can begin your current Phaser v2.x.x game conversions and upgrade them into Phaser 3 now. I show you how I upgrading my product line from Adobe Flash & Phaser v2.x.x.
