I’m new to mobile game developement and also new to Cocos2D-x.
The book from packtpub is what I’m using to learn the ropes and I think it’s a good start.
So far I’ve had a great experience from it. They cover most aspects in detail and explains what is neccesary to understand. The book is split into chapters which often contain a smaller game tied to that chapter. This means there are alot of “practical” examples and not just walls of text and concepts.
The only negative aspect that I have found so far is that the book is executed on a mac with XCode. This is not a big issue as you should be able to follow it fairly well even on a PC.
It’s pretty new which means it should be up to date with all the versions and facts etc.
Hope that makes anything more clear
