AppGameKit Games Pack 1 updated

Today we've added two new projects with complete source code to the AppGameKit Games Pack #1 DLC.
https://store.steampowered.com/app/468510/AppGameKit__Games_Pack_1/


Galazians


This game is a take on the classic Galaxians retro arcade game. Blast your way through waves of aliens using lazaers and an energy shield. The game features enemies that flock down and attack you. There's plenty to learn from the code of this game.

 

WiFi Mouse & Keyboard


This project is not a game but we felt it was well worth adding to the pack because it's very unique and interesting to learn from. We asked the author, Conor Byrne, to explain his inspiration for the app and how he used it:

I started the project by quickly sketching out the user interface on paper. I then created a more polished interface for each screen as vector graphics, which I could then reference as I was programming it. I also used the buttons from the designs for the finished app.
 
The client is written in AppGameKit Tier 1 BASIC, which runs on Android. This automatically connects to the host app (written in AppGameKit Tier 2 C++) if both are on the same network connection. When I finished the project I used the export functions in AppGameKit to create a package for the Google Play store and Amazon App Store. It's free to download now on the Google Play store with over 100 downloads at the moment.
 
I've used it for browsing the internet and watching Netflix on a laptop I have hooked it up to an external monitor, since I didn't have a wireless mouse or keyboard for it. It can be handy for small things such as just turning up the volume on a computer playing music.
 
The full source code for both the Tier 1 and Tier2 projects is supplied for you to learn from.
 
These projects are now available to existing users and new users should consider packing the pack up while it's on offer:

About This Software

AppGameKit is a powerful game development engine, ideal for Beginners, Hobbyists & Indie developers. Now anyone can quickly code and build apps for multiple platforms using AppGameKit's BASIC scripting system. With just a few commands you can have demos/games up and running on mobile devices. Bob Duffy, Developer Relations Intel Corporation, said “AppGameKit is a great cross platform development tool. It allows developers to quickly optimize and compile apps.”

Games can be developed and deployed to your chosen mobile devices for rapid prototyping. AppGameKit does all the heavy lifting for you - making it easy to code, compile and then export apps to each platform. All you need to focus on is your game/app idea. It's that simple!
