Corona GeekDuring this week’s Corona Geek Ed Maurina, developer of Corona SDK game templates at Roaming Gamer, walked us through a Corona SDK code snippet that makes your game characters jump. Using Corona’s built in physics engine, we applied force to a single character and then added a second character to show how easy it is to handle touch events for multiple objects using the same function. Next week we’ll be looking at code to make it rain and flash lighting. In the meantime, check out Dr. Burton’s brand new book, Learning Mobile App & Game Dev with Corona for more tips on how to use Corona’s physics engine in your games.

Congratulations to Robert Araho for winning this week’s Corona Labs’ t-shirt. For your chance to win, follow Corona Geek on Twitter and Facebook, and complete the Corona Geek giveaway form.
