Tutorials: Cocos2D Game Tutorials Converted To Cross Platform C++ Cocos2D-X

In the past I’ve mentioned the Cocos2D-X open source project.  For those unfamiliar with Cocos2D-X, Cocos2D-X is a cross-platfrom C++ implementation of the Cocos2D engine for creation of games that can run on iOS, Android, Windows, and others from a single code base.

One developer has been nice enough to convert several Cocos2D tutorials to Cocos2D-X so that you can take a look at the C++ code on yourself.   They’ve included all the Android build files and Xcode project files so you should be able to get things running quickly on iOS and Android devices.

Here’s a list of the tutorials and the related Cocos2D-X source code on Github:
Simple iPhone Game - SimpleGameCocos2D-x
Simple iPhone Game 2 - SimpleGamePart2Cocos2D-x
Simple iPhone Game 3 - SimpleGamePart3Cocos2D-x
Tile Based Game - TileBasedGameCocos2D-x

On the Cocos2D-X project website they’ve also just posted a couple of videos detailing the process of  setting up Cocos2D-X on the Mac for Android and iOS.

Should make for a good starting point for those looking to create cross-platform games or who would just prefer to use C++ over Objective-C.
