Your First Game
In this chapter you'll build your first complete game. It won't win any awards, but you'll
learn how to get the essential elements of cocos2d to work together, and the game can be
easily adapted. In fact, several variations of this game were released to the App Store by
readers of earlier editions of this topic.
The game is the inversion of the famous Doodle Jump game, aptly named DoodleDrop.
The player's goal is to avoid falling obstacles for as long as possible by rotating the
device to move the player sprite. Take a look at the final version in Figure 4-1 to get an
idea of what you'll be creating in this chapter.
