Well good news – both starter kits are now 100% finished and available for purchase! There are two new starter kits:
- Platformer Game Starter Kit: Here Jake shows you how to make a Mario-like platformer game, complete with a custom physics engine.
- Beat ‘Em Up Game Starter Kit: Here Allen shows you how to make a side-scrolling beat ’em up game, with tons of polish.
We’ve combined these two starter kits with my Space Game Starter Kit to make an epic starter kit bundle that will save you tons of time and money.

About the Starter Kits
First things first, check out the games:
The starter kits include full source code for these games that you can use as starting points for your own projects.
But in our starter kits we believe in giving more than just source code – we also give you full epic-length tutorials on how to build the games yourself from scratch!
The tutorials for all three starter kits include over 650 pages of high quality tutorials. If you like the other game tutorials we have in this site, you will love these starter kits.
