My first game for the Windows Phone is nearing completion. It’s based off of a home made dice game with flip down tiles inside of a wooden container that I played when I was younger. I looked through a lot of code teaching myself techniques that made dealing with animations a little easier. There was one class in particular that I learned a lot from in a Silverlight extensions project over at http://www.codeplex.com. The idea of this removes some of the bulk from creating basic animations like fade in’s or fade out’s. I’ll soon be learning the in’s and out’s of the WP7 marketplace. Particularly note the AnimateDouble methods.
