Resumo do curso

'2D Game Development with libGDX' explored the basics of the libGDX game framework, from simple drawing to user input. This course will use those skills to create a much more sophisticated platforming game called GigaGal. In creating GigaGal, you'll learn about sprite drawing, keeping track of complex game state, controlling interactions between game entities, and also how to load and manage level data.

Create GigaGal and give her the ability to move and jump. You’ll add separate sprites for facing left, facing right, standing, and jumping. Then, you will add an animation for GigaGal’s walk.

Level 2-3: The Platforms

Add the platforms to GigaGal and allow GigaGal to jump on them and fall off again.

Level 2-4: The Camera

Set up the camera to follow GigaGal around the level.

Level 2-5: The Enemies

Add GigaGal’s evil robot adversaries.

Level 2-6: The Bullets

Let GigaGal fight back with her arm cannon and create awesome explosions when she scores a hit.

Level 2-7: Level Loading

With the gameplay complete, add the ability to load level data created in an external tool.
