It has been difficult for developers new to cocos2d-x to learn this game framework but a new book just released will make it much easier.

The book, “Cocos2d-X By Example Beginner’s Guide”, provides an entertaining way of learning to develop cross platform games using cocos2d-x. 

There are several game examples, Air Hockey, Sky Defense, Rocket Through, Victorian Rush Hour, and Eskimo to demonstrate all the capabilities of cocos2d-x with special attention to the physics engine Box2D.  The Appendix provides additional reference information on Vector calculations that help in rotating objects and controlling angular base speeds.
