Learn, explore, and create commercially successful mobile games for iOS and Android
Corona is a software development kit to build mobile applications for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices.
This book will take you through the journey of developing games right from installing Corona SDK and creating Hello World as your first app. Going further, you will learn how to script in Lua and learn some techniques to apply this in Corona SDK with demonstration. Towards the end of the book you'll build the final game, which involves physical objects and also uses features such as the accelerometer. Moreover, learn to make your game socially available on Twitter and Facebook.
By the end of the book, you'll learn to deploy your iOS and Android games to the App Store and Google Play Store.
