  1. Aweome, clear tutorial.

    Thank You, I already feel confident in making my own games, however, I’m gonna strive to learn more before I begin to create games. Thanks again.

  2. Awesome Basic Course!

    I enjoyed this course very much and I learned a lot of basic concepts quickly and implemented them easily into my games.

  3. Can't be better!

    The lessons were easy to learn, and the course is nicely structured.

  4. Easy to understand

    Its easy to make may first simple game after this course.

  5. This was on Mac - I have a PC :-(

    I did learn a lot during this course but where this course falls WAY SHORT is the fact that it is all done on a Mac. I have a PC. The PC interface is very different. Many of the commands mentioned in this course did not match what you would do on the PC.

    The only reason I was able to get through it was because I had already done a little in GameSalad and knew how to do the basic commands on a PC.

    An “Absolute Beginner” on a PC who had NEVER touched GameSalad before would be totally LOST and frustrated and not know what to do.

    Please create a course for the PC….

  6. Very Helpful.

    This is a great way to get to know most of the terminology and how they work! Thanks.

  10. not very good

    it did not tell me how to do any thing

  11. Absolute beginner indeed

    I actually kind of got bored in some of the parts because it’s is really what it’s said on the tin. For Absolute beginners. He explains everything which was why I had to skip some parts since I was already familiar with the concepts.

  12. Excellent

    Very good instructions on getting started for beginners.

  13. Great Resource

    This is an excellent tutorial for beginners.

  14. clear and edifying

    excellent tutorial! I just have a little question about the class 41 “reset game”: how is the game supposed to know to go to the “game over” scene if we delete the “end game” rule from the background?

  15. Real good introduction.

    Jamie’s course gave me a clear and pleasant overview of the GameSalad interface. Now I know better where to start and see the logic needed for putting my own game Issas into practice. (Watched second half of the course on my phone at the beach with my head unerneath a towel). Thanks Jamie!

  16. Great Introduction

    Has me excited to get started again. Also, I’ve got his book – looks awesome.

  17. great info

    really helping me get started in creating my game, thanks!

  18. Awesome Beginner Tutorial - Thanks

    Tha

  19. This lesson is awesome! Very clear explanations in little chunks so it’s easy to digest. Thank you very much.

  20. Amazing course. A must for all beginners. Broken down into smaller parts for easy review. Many thanks!!

  21. It is the absolute beginner’s guide. Very basic. If you don’t know anything at all of GameSalad or programming in general this is the place to start for sure. Gives a great understanding of the foundation of things. If you know your way around a little already it will be extremely boring and hard to focus and follow along but if you do pay close attention you may pick up a few little things you didn’t already know. In my opinion anyone new to it all or only new to Game Salad should start here.
