5.0 out of 5 stars Concise and child friendly introduction to programming using pygame zero
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 June 2020
Ref the previous reviews saying the code doesn’t work. It’s now June 2020 and perhaps the book has been revised (though not mentioned in the front), but it is clear on page 53 for the first game how to run it. The instructions on pages 24 and 25 are clear. There are no errors with the “shoot the Apple” code given on page 198. The code is written for pygame zero so many packages are pre bundled into that eg Actor. If you are running within the idle editor then yes you will need to add references to packages that don’t need to be mentioned if running via pgzrun command.
This is a very clear and concise introduction to pygame zero and gives opportunity to develop and enhance the games that are included.
Negative is you have to type everything, the source code is not made available for download from DK.com, just the graphic files.
