Introduction

There’s never been a better time to bring your creative ideas to life by programming a game for iOS. The Apple App Store gives you a huge opportunity to get your game in front of millions of potential customers; game distribution has never been easier or so far-reaching.

Not only do you have access to millions of potential customers, you also have access to cutting edge development tools and hardware. The iPhone and iPod Touch are effectively computers with power that outpaces the desktop computers of just a few years ago. They allow you to create some fantastic games with few of the hardware and software limitations of earlier handheld devices.

This book will introduce you to the world of game design and programming for iOS 5.
