Space Game Starter Kit updated to Cocos2D v 2.X!

This is just a quick note to let you know that the second edition of the Space Game Starter Kit is now available!

This is a massive update to the Starter Kit – I literally went through the entire kit line by line to get everything up-to-date. The biggest change is it’s updated for the latest version of Cocos2D 2.X – cocos2d-iphone-2.1-beta3 at the time of writing.

In addition, I made the following changes:

  • Added support for the iPad retina screen
  • Added support for the iPhone 5’s 4″ screen
  • Used Modern Objective-C syntax where appropriate
  • Tons of other bugfixes and improvements

While other publishers would charge you for massive overhauls like this, we are releasing this as a free update to our existing customers, as a way of thanking you for your support! :]

If you purchased the Space Game Starter Kit, you can find the download link in the Space Game Starter Kit private forums.

I hope you all enjoy the second edition, and I wish you the best of luck in your space adventures!

  • Hey,

    I purchased the Space Game Starter Kit 1st ed. earlier this year. When i clicked on the link and login to update, the page stated that I was not authorized to read this page. I access the page using the same pc as well. How can I resolve this?

  • It would be great if the book "Learning Cocos2D" were updated for the latest version of Cocos2D 2.X because i really want to buy this book :)
