This week we are launching our new “Tutorial Treasury” series.
Here's a link to the first one, http://bit.ly/1HtdCul

Its purpose is to refresh and consolidate instructional material — past tutorials, guides, videos, etc. — around a central theme. Over the next several weeks, we will share various collections of resources, giving you a chance to review topics and tutorials which you may have missed.
Let us know what you think of the idea and what you'd like to see next. #tutorial   #coronasdk

Monday we will learn how to build a motorized wheeled cart using Corona’s built-in physics engine and pivot joints. We’ll also explore ideas for using the cart in a game.

If you missed last week’s Hangout on working with rag doll characters, be sure to watch the code walk through. We talked about using pivot joint and touch joints to create complex structures which other object and our player can interact with.

On Monday we will dig into the code for the rag doll example we discussed last week in part 1 of our physics conversation. We’ll also talk more about using pivot joint and touch joints to create complex structures which other objects and our players can interact with. If you are new to working with a physics engine and applying physics bodies to objects, join the panel and ask questions. Getting involved is a great way to learn.

Replay Last Week’s Corona Geek #146
Learn the concepts behind creating pivot joints to create a rag doll and adding touch joints to move physics objects around. Also learn a few tips on troubleshooting with the physic's hybrid mode.

Let’s Play Alone for June’s Corona Geek Games Challenge
Last month we played Boom Dots for the chance to win a $50 gift card. Jason Schroeder dominated that game with multiple high scores. 

This month we’re playing Alone by Laser Dog Games. ALONE is a handcrafted, intense survival journey through space. Navigate caves, rip through rocky debris, dodge rocks and comets and test your endurance as you pursue ever higher scores in this ultra fast, procedural runner. It’s available on both iOS and Android as a paid app.

If you’d like to participate in June’s challenge with a free game option, play One Dot One Target on iOS or Android. One Dot Impossible Target is a darts like game that is intriguing, mind twisting, and requires lots of concentration. As the dot rotates, your target is to hit the red dot for maximum point while avoiding the crossing bars or obstacles. You will need your full concentration to win each levels as they become more and more challenging.

The original weekly G+ Hangout dedicated to mobile app development using Corona SDK.
Introduction
Tune in every Monday at 12pm Pacific.

Corona Geek is the official weekly Google+ Hangout focused on mobile app development using Corona SDK. 

Each week we discuss topics along side new and veteran Corona Developers and third party Corona tool creators with the goal of helping Corona Developers better understand app creation, app monetization, app marketing, and app analytics. 

As developers ourselves, we know these topics are essential to an app developers success and we believe the Corona SDK is the best app development tool to make it all happen.

Wanna be on the show or get your app reviewed? Hit us up on G+, Twitter, Facebook, or YouTube. Just look for CoronaGeek and tell us what's on your mind.


or email CoronaGeek@CoronaLabs.com
