The tutorial I created for Ray Wenderlich’s website is now live! Click here to view it.
Here is a snippet of the beginning:
In this tutorial you will learn how to make a simple augmented reality game for the iPhone/iPod touch!
In this game you will utilize the camera, gyroscope, and Cocos2d framework. Sounds exciting right?
It definitely was fun exploring these technologies while writing this article. There is a bit of math and conversions, but don’t worry – it’s nothing too hard!
To use this tutorial, you need an iPhone 4 because the tutorial uses the gyroscope to move your view of the world.
You also need to have at least basic knowledge of Cocos2D and have Cocos2D installed. If you are a complete beginner to Cocos2D, you should go through some of the other Cocos2D tutorials on this site first.
Are you ready to start blasting some virtual aliens? Let’s go!
