Are you interested in expanding your skills with GameSalad?
GameSalad is a fantastic tool to create your smash hit games. Its filled with hidden secrets and tools that can help make your game even better. A lot of these tools seem complicated and intimating. Don't worry.
This course aims to take the basic knowledge of Grids, Tables, the Expression Editor and more, and turn it into an easy step by step course.
The course is separated into 4 different sections, each tackling and introducing new elements.
You will learn the basic use of Tables and how to edit them during gameplay.
You will learn the expression editor, and how to make equations.
Understand the loop behaviour and how it behaves similar to rules.
Some very useful and insightful tips and tricks to help make development faster and easier.
Plus, there are template files for each section and with the final product. This way, if you get lost, or lose your work, you can continue form any section.
Please Note: This course uses the Mac version of GameSalad. It is visually different that the Windows version. Although it runs the same way, you might find it a little confusing.
It is also recommend you have a basic understanding on GameSalad, Navigating and how to place logic and create rules.
You will need a GameSalad membership (Trail, Basic or Pro) to be able to use GameSalad.
Well Done on completing the course. Hopefully by now, you have a greater understanding on how to use grids in your games. This is such a valuable thing to learn as it can be applied into all sorts of games. You can look at my examples on the GS forums or marketplace to get an Idea on how easy it is to expand with the lessons learnt here.
If you had any troubles, or have a great idea on how to improve or expand the course, please get in touch. I would love to continue to make the course more enjoyable.
