Description

Finally there is a games book for Director developers! Up until now, Lingo programmers have had to figure it out themselves while Java and C programmers have had dozens of games books to choose from. With Advanced Lingo for Games, the new book by Gary Rosenzweig, Lingo programmers can learn from an expert game developer who has created hundreds of games with Macromedia Director. The book contains more than 20 complete games including the source code. You can read about how each of these games was made, and use the source code to create your own games.
