About this video
Cocos2d-x is a suite of open source, cross-platform game-development tools used by thousands of developers all over the world. Cocos2d-x is a game framework written in C++, with a thin platform-dependent layer. Completely written in C++, the core engine has the smallest footprint and the fastest speed of any other game engine, and is optimized to be run on all kinds of devices.
You will begin with the initial setup and installation of Cocos2d before moving on to the fundamentals needed to create a new project.

Next, you will look at strings and create labels, including a label with True Type Font (TTF) font support.
Later, you will learn about layer and scene creation and transition. Then you will create the GUI parts essential for a game, such as buttons and switches. After that, you will breathe life into the game with background music and sound effects using the all new Cocos2d-x audio engine. You will then discover how to manage resource files and implement processes that depend on the operating system.
Finally, you will learn about tools that will help you make games more robust and stable, and get to know best practices to improve the game you have developed.
