Making Grid-Based Games with Corona SDK

Easy way to make grids for puzzle games, tower defense games, etc.

No matter whether you're making a puzzle game (like Memory Match, Match 3, etc.), a tower defense game, or many other types of casual and hard-core games, you're probably going to need a grid of objects on the screen.

This mini tutorial includes a chunk of Corona SDK code that makes creating grids super easy. Simply by changing a few variables you can make the grid whatever size you want and it will always be centered on the screen.

This is a Beginner-to-Intermediate level course that's focused on the grid code, not on how to create a specific game.

(This course is included in the Beginning Game Development course.)
