Because cocos2d supports the TMX file format, you'll take a look at how to create tile-
based games using the Tiled editor.
This is a primer on using the Chipmunk and Box2D physics engines—and the crazy
things you can do with them.
In this chapter you'll create a basic pinball table using the Box2D physics engine. The
collision shapes are created with the help of the PhysicsEditor tool.
Learn how to turn the isometric tilemap game from Chapter 11 into a multiplayer game
for two, complete with leaderboards and achievements.
