DarkBasic Pro Game Progamming

The author is definately a software engineer apparent in his frequent spelling and gramatical errors but nevertheless clear and concise. The examples have a few errors, mostly spelling errors in the code, but are well designed and generally show the current concept clearly.

Reading this book while you work out the examples is kind of like having an extreemely enthusiastic best friend leaning over your shoulder teaching you the material. I’m a professional programmer, and so decided to play with DarkBasic and Blitz3D to tinker at 3D games. Hands down, my preference is Blitz3D, but that does not have anything to do with my review. I purchased this book from Amazon a couple of years ago. They essentially include everything you need, minus the assets to create your own game.

Apparently there have been commercial games produced with both languages. DarkBasic is a large language. The author gives fairly adequate coverage to the basics of what one would need to know to start programming in DB. It’s hard to quantify where this book falls short for me. Some books “have it”, and some don’t.

The book is worth reading, but not for the price. Were I to do it over again, I’d purchase it from one of Amazons affiliates for a couple bucks.

Beginner’s Guide to DarkBASIC Game Programming – PDF Free Download

An invaluable resource for the aspiring game programmer, as a beginner’s reference. This great book explains, simply, the needed utility programs to draw and animate your graphics, PLUS many well-written examples to help you in to right direction.

I found myself refering back to some of the Sprite-related chapters and some of the simple 3D examples for building some games. I really think this book is a great asset for those of you who want to start programming games for the PC, but do not have any darkabsic in programming. This is one awesomely-powerful 2D and 3D game development environment is explained rather quickly, but succintly and never leaves you feeling lost or out-of-the-loop.


I’ve read other books that are supposed to teach you the programming language with examples, but they were filled with unfamiliar computer jargon and the examples were shoehorned into the book in what seemed an afterthought.

I rated this book highly. There were some small ambiguities, but after reading the passage or paragraph over, I actually understood the methodology of the examples and their commands use.

This was a great book for starting game programming with Dark Basic Pro. I use this book all of the time when I am writing games. My only complaint is the programing stuff. I am not confident you could create a 3D game using this book exclusively. I would love to see a second volume to this book that was just 3D programming.

This book is awesome gives good amount of information and examples how to program computer games. This book is ok for people who love to read. If you don’t like reading just use wikipedia. The article in Wiki is short and easy to understand and it covers almost everything in this book.
