Video Game Programming Level 2

Building on the Java programming skills gained in Level 1 of this series, you will focus on understanding the crucial computer science, computer graphics, and mathematical concepts of how 2D game engines are created. This challenging course pushes you beyond being simply a user of technology and puts you on the path toward creating it.

You will learn:

  • Object-oriented programming concepts such as classes, inheritance, composition, and encapsulation
  • Programming skills to detect and code character interactions and form connections between objects
  • Implementation of algebra and trigonometry in game development
