Book Description

It has never been a more attractive time to be an app developer. With no signs of stopping, Apple’s iOS devices are dominating the mobile scene and with UDK, the free version of the most popular third-party game engine available, it has never been easier to get into the app business.

"UDK iOS Game Development Beginner’s Guide" takes a clear, step-by-step approach to building a small third-person shooter game using the Unreal Development Kit with plenty of examples on how to create a game that is uniquely your own.

You will begin learning the fundamentals of the Unreal Engine before creating a third-person shooter game in UDK. After the game is created you will learn what can be done with any project to optimize your game for the iOS platform and discover special considerations that need to be made. Finally, you’ll publish your game on the App Store for the world to see and play along, with details on different costs associated with publishing.

If you would like to make iOS games with the Unreal Development Kit or are interested in porting your game from PC to iOS, this book is for you.
