Sample text

If one is in Seattle, and the other in New York, there’s little chance they will collide. A broad phase test gives you a sanity check on the boxes in question. If the absolute value of the distance between the centers of the two boxes is less than the sum of the extents (half the width or height of each box), then there’s a chance they overlap on that axis. If the boxes are colliding, then the broad phase test must be true for both axes. This approach is also called a proximity test, which we’ll go into in more detail later in this chapter.

It’s pretty easy to see why complex games need faster computers and graphics cards when you think about challenges like collision testing. False Y Axis Extent Y Extent Y Extent X X,Y Rectangle 2 X Axis Figure 1-10. Two overlapping boxes Creating Custom Rectangle Objects A simple improvement you can do in the algorithm is to create a custom rectangle object that stores two points of the box, the upper-left corner and the bottom-right one, so you can do the tests directly on the variables without having to perform a sum operation.

North In order to make the method simpler, and to avoid calculating the rotation twice—once to test for empty squares and again to rotate the block—you store the current position, rotate the block, and then test to see if the squares of the new block position are empty. If so, you just draw the block in the new position. If not, you restore the previous position.
