Elementary Game Programming & Simulators Using Jamagic provides a comprehensive guide to using the Jamagic scripting language to program a complete 3D game. Using a step-by-step approach, you can learn how to program professional flight simulation and ship simulation games with realistic physics, movements, collisions, sound, and music. The book also teaches you how to import numerous 3D objects and models into your games, allowing for more time on the programming aspects of game development, rather than the details of artwork.


  • Teaches elementary game programming without assuming knowledge of any other language
  • Provides users with a complete guide on how to build a 3D game from the ground up
  • Opens the door to more complicated languages by teaching common programming concepts
