Tutorial – Creating a LITE Version for your Game

I believe that every time you create a paid app, you should also create a LITE Version which is FREE to download. These reason being, Most people want to see what the app/game is all about before spending any money (even if it is only $0.99). They want to see how game play is, what the graphics are like, if they enjoy the type of game, and many other things they can not get out of a description and some screenshots.

The good news is that you can create your LITE Version very very easily. In fact the initial changes to your existing project will only take a few minutes.

Tutorial – Game Structure – Basic

Well I am very grateful for all of the comments being left on my blog and one of the frequent requests has been for game structure. I will make my disclaimer once again, I am in no way an expert at programming for the Iphone (or anything for that matter), BUT I will try to explain how I managed to do it in my Game “Planet One”.

This tutorial is going to be fairly vague as each games runs a little different and I want to give just some basic information so you can adapt the CONCEPT for the code your are writing.

I will start off by explaining how my game is structured then go into how I accomplished it.
