Overall approval rating: 97.78%

“The course was awesome, it was fun and informative. I found the actual code easy enough to understand and all the explanations were in simple plain terms and I left feeling like I learned a lot. Thank you!”

“Seb is a great teacher and somehow has the ability to make complex concepts seemingly simple and easy to understand. The course is presented in a sociable and relaxed manner and covers a range of classic arcade game examples.”

“I really enjoyed it, the best bit being that it reinvigorated my initial interest in Flash as a platform – it’s great fun.”

“The course was a huge confidence builder. I now feel fully equipped to start creating my own games… you’ve taken away all the stumbling blocks… now I can concentrate on the creative side of games programming.” – Nicola Birtwhistle, attendee from Brighton workshops
