We can see that the tasks involved in this particular GameManager class are limited, but as gameplay becomes more complex, the game manager will often grow as it has more info to keep track of. In the first step for this recipe, we're setting up the GameManager class as a singleton. The singleton is a design pattern that is meant to ensure that there is only one static instance of this class that will be instantiated throughout the entire application's life cycle. Being static, this will allow us to make calls to the game manager's methods on a global level, meaning we can reach its methods from any class in our project without having to create a new GameManager class.

How to do it… In this recipe, we're using the ObjectFactory class as a way for us to easily create and return subtypes of the BaseObject class. However, in a real-world project, the factory would not normally contain inner classes. 1. Before we create our object factory, we should create our base class as well as at least a couple subtypes extending the base class: public static class BaseObject { /* The mX and mY variables have no real purpose in this recipe, however in * a real factory class, member variables might be used to define position, * color, scale, and more, of a sprite or other entity.

Using the BitmapTextureAtlasTextureRegionFactory class, we can call the createFromAss et(pBitmapTextureAtlas, pContext, pAssetPath, pTextureX, pTextureY) method, which makes creating the texture region a piece of cake. In the order the parameters are listed from left to right, the pBitmapTextureAtlas parameter specifies the texture atlas which we'd like the ITextureRegion object to be stored in. The pContext parameter allows the class to open the image from the gfx/ folder. png. And the final two parameters, pTextureX and pTextureY, define the location on the texture atlas in which to place the ITextureRegion object.
