"....I think adding libpd to pythonista would create a very powerful platform"
Agreed! Please keep us updated on your progress. :)
Sure, glad you found it useful! :) It was a bit of an afterthought tbh, as i created it on the iPad then thought i'd try running the code on the iPod. There wasn't too much wrong with it so I hacked in that screen_factor global for cross platform support. Not sure how scaleable it would be but you could probably get a fair bit of mileage, if you design games from the ground up using it.
I put together a little Space Invaders game, while getting to grips with the Scene module. Thought I'd share it here.
Thanks to Sebastian for sharing his Impossiball clone. I found the MultiScene implementation particularly helpful.
I'm Dave - I work as a software engineer based in UK, primarily iOS development. I have a background in audio and music so particularly interested in DSP, audio processing and effects etc. I've been programming for many years off and on but only recently started doing it professionally.
I'm new to Python - I became interested in Python as a fast prototyping environment and for web things; mainly to supplement my iOS work, learn a different language and to offer a programming environment that i can have fun with, rather than getting bogged down with the complexities of other languages.
Pythonista is excellent. I downloaded the App so that I could learn Python - it's perfect for this. I'm getting to grips with things pretty quickly and enjoying the progress.
