Game Development Series Highlights – Creating Walls
Recently on Corona Geek, we started a game development series that’s recreating an existing endless runner game using Corona. So far we’ve defined the elements of the game, identified the required assets, and discussed the organization of our project.
During Hangout 131 we started writing code to create walls that spawn at 45 degree angles. The process involved some 2D math, but you don’t have to understand all the details to follow along.
We have also split the Hangouts into clips that can be easily consumed in snack size pieces. You can either watch the entire Hangout, or just the pieces that interest you.

Here are the Hangout snippets. Download links for all samples and code snippets can be found in the show notes for each of the Hangouts. Enjoy!

During the Hangout we also talked with Walter Luh about the recent Corona Free announcement and Corona support for desktop apps. Walter shared some great insights into creating Win32 apps and publishing to Steam. Here are some clips from the conversation.
