Wild Pockets Programming Manual: Introduction

This manual is about making games in Wild Pockets. (If you just want to play games, you don't need a manual. Just read the instructions on the webpage with the game.) To understand this manual, you will need programming skills. It is probably sufficient to have taken a single high-school course in programming. If you are a professional programmer, JavaScript developer, or ActionScript developer, you will have no difficulty. In addition to this manual, you will find several other sources of documentation:

  • The API Reference can be accessed here, or by visiting the Function Documentation window in the builder.
  • The Lua Manual is necessary to learn the Lua language.
  • The Builder Manual provides a comprehensive introduction to the Wild Pockets game builder.
  • My First Game Tutorial is an introductory game building tutorial, that will teach you the ropes of building your first game in Wild Pockets.
  • Sample Programs can also be accessed directly from the Help menu in the development environment.
  • The Version History provides a summary of major features added and bugs fixed in each release.
