Games on Symbian OS is the only guide to highlight the gaming opportunities presented by the Symbian OS platform, with particular emphasis on the creation of mobile games in C++ using native APIs.
Jo Stichbury leads a field of industry experts to provide the reader with detailed information about the key APIs used to create games. The book includes a broad introduction to games on mobile phones and describes the various ways of creating and playing mobile games. It also provides clear code examples and discussion, with information about how to optimise code for best practice. The authors use standard techniques to relay information (tables, diagrams and code samples) as well as cross-referencing between chapters and, where necessary, to other books in the Symbian Press series and beyond (e.g. to SDK documentation).
