I had to buy this for my class (so i was learning through my professor then the book)
if that's that case for you buy it lol
if not, its still a good book to have (i still have mine from a year ago)
Especially if your interested in teaching yourself how to use gamemaker
-lots of diagrams and pictures to help visually (not just text)
nothing special really its just a book
If i forget or need help using gamemaker i use forms, youtube, and the book
in that order
The explanation is Too much basic for who knows the Game Maker IDE. And the examples included in the book are poor.
Maybe The author should have included games most exciting the to capture to the reader.
Perhaps this book will serve to who has not yet investigated the Game Maker environment.
For the person who takes time researching how to develop games in this IDE, this book will be useful.
La explicación es demasiado básica para quien conoce el Entorno de desarrollo de Game Maker. Los ejemplos incluidos son demasiado pobres.
Quizás el autor debería haber incluido juegos más excitantes o atrapantes que capturen al lector para continuar leyendo la obra hasta el final.
Puede que el libro sirva para alguien que aún no probó Game Maker, pero para quien tiene algunos meses investigando el entorno, no sirve.
And this is not all: The more complicated games are full of mistakes (especially the last) so that it is impossible to create the game when the reader didn't download the example before. And downloading all you need to create the games takes some time: to find the download site!
As an introduction to Game Maker I would remommend the Waller book: MUCH better and more helpful and without mistakes.
