I can’t tell you how excited I was when I learned that Corona would support 2.5D or Isometric game development. Now that the new graphics engine is available, I figured I would jump into it and start making games!
Of course there is a learning curve to making games. The first thing I wanted to know was how to make a circle appear as if it were 2.5D. Easier said than done. For my first attempt I wanted to simulate an attack radius. Sounds simple, right? Well after a night of coding, I had learned a great deal, which I have summarized in this 11 minutes tutorial!
Please note that all of the changes to the object are done to the objects path parameter, not the object itself. We are just changing it’s appearance, not the actual object.
