Create a multi-plaform cocos2d-x 3.0 project

Step 1 - Download cocos2d-x

Download your cocos2d-x directory
As a pre step 1 I would uninstall some of the previous version of the cocos2d Xcode templates by following this stackoverflow post.

Step 2 - Download & Install Python

Since the script "cocos2d-x/" is a python script. You will need to download and install Python 2.7. Skip to Step 3 if you have already downloaded and installed Python. After you've downloaded your python-2.7-macosx10.6.dmg. Open it up and double click on "Python.mpkg". I use Pacifist to install the multiple package file. Python will be installed at the "/usr/local/bin" directory by default. Be sure that directory is in your environment search PATH.

Step 3 - Run the Cocos2d-x create script

Go into your Cocos2d-x directory and run the script below. Be sure to replace the project name and your project identifier to your own. I'm assuming that you are creating a C++ project, thus "cpp".

cd cocos2d-x
python ./ -p [ProjectName] -k [com.project.myproject] -l cpp

Step 4 - Open up your project

Your iOS Xcode project is now located at "cocos2d-x/projects/[ProjectName]/proj.ios"

Learn Shapes by Emplementation

This app was inspired by my nieces, nephews, friends and families who recently became parents. I’ve tried ALL of the shape learning apps available in the Apple App Store. None of them impressed me at all. With close to one billion apps in the app store today, I was ashamed as an app developer that the quality in the kids and education section in basic shapes and colors learning. 

Throughout the development of this game, I’ve worked with many of my champ toddler testers and tried to come up with the best experience for them.

Learn Shapes is made with your child in mind. Therefore, I've paid special attention on child privacy. There a child lock in placed for the parent to unlock in order to access social capabilities, other than that the entire app is child proof. No ads, No user behavior tracking, no in app purchases. This give you a peace of mind knowing it is safe and secure.
