Lua programming is basically popular because of its technical features. Ruby languished for a decade , more or less before people noticed it because of Rails. Without WOW’s programming lua is completely meaningless. In short ,we can say that lua is known as gaming language. The actual cream of LUA :- -It is designed in such a way that it can integrated in host applications. -As it is a perfect tool to learn the basics of programming. -We can use the lua.exe interpreter for an immediate and simple command line use.
As we all notice that most of games are build in lua language. So, if you want to pen such a game on your mobile platform than you have to take care of certain points:-
Decide the concept of game :- Before starting up a game one should finalize the concept of game by keeping these concept in mind like what will be the target audience, in which language should the game should build. So, that a lua developers can make his way easily.
Learn Programming :-One should have proper knowledge of programming. If you don’t know how to program , i will like to suggest you please go through Python. I am sure you will love to program in this language. Code the Game :-In this path, you will use an engine created by someone else and use it to make your own game. Usually, engines have bindings in some scripting language (like python, lua or ruby) and thus you can code the actual game in a scripting language. Here you should focus on the game design rather than other low level details.
Focus On Library:- For making any game we have to go through programming certainly if we are well aware by this concept than it defines that you are also aware about the impact and importance of library.To make any mobile game a lua programmers needs libraries for graphics, event handling, networking, etc. Reads the tutorials online and start playing with the library you have chosen. Learn how to make simple stuff like rectangles, circles, load images, etc. Try to make some animations. In this way you are able to create a fine and attractive game application any time.
