Have you been too busy to keep up with us at the Amazon Appstore? We've been busy too, from discussing views, the camera system within GameMaker, with guest blogger Nathan Ranney to announcing our Amazon Developer Spotlight winners. Read more to see what you missed!
In this post, guest blogger Nathan Ranney shows you the ropes around views, which is the camera system in GameMaker. Views, like most things in GameMaker, have some tricky to understand variables and functions. Do you want to know how is view_xview different than view_wview and how are both of those different than view_xport and view_wport? If so, then this blog is for you.
The Spotlight showcases exceptional new apps and games from developers in the UK, US, and Germany to Amazon customers across Amazon Fire TV and Fire tablet devices. With hundreds of submissions received, our Amazon Appstore experts had a tough job selecting the winners. Congratulations to these worthy winners of the 2017 Amazon Developer Spotlight!
