Example text

However, games can be very complicated applications, and without an understanding of the theory behind game programming, game development will be a very challenging task. If you are new to game programming, reading the next chapter thoroughly before attempting to create your game will benefit you greatly. 34 | Chapter 1: Introduction to the iPhone CHAPTER 2 Game Engine Anatomy To solve the large problem of how to create a game on the iPhone, we first need to solve a series of smaller problems such as how to display graphics and play sounds.

Let’s say we want to draw an image of a koala (Figure 2-3) on top of a background of eucalyptus trees (Figure 2-4). The image of the koala is stored in a rectangular texture in memory, but we don’t want to draw the whole rectangle; we want to draw only the pixels of the texture that shows the koala. For each pixel in the texture, we need to know whether the pixel should or should not be drawn. Figure 2-3. Koala source texture 42 | Chapter 2: Game Engine Anatomy Figure 2-4. Eucalyptus source texture Some graphical systems accomplish this by adding a mask.

Very complex game engines, such as the ones found in current-generation PC and console platforms, use these to organize multiple tasks that run simultaneously, such as disk access, physics, and graphics routines.
