DevBytes: Cartoon Animation Techniques

This time, we wrap up the series on cartoon animation techniques with a demo that shows a few of the techniques in the context of a larger application. Because it's nice to know how to write the code, but you might also be wondering why you might want to.

For some real-world context, you could also check out games such as Candy Crush Saga (a horribly addictive game I've gotten sucked into that's less like casual gaming and more like casual crack). It uses a veritable plethora of cartoon animation techniques to keep the player engaged with the game and disengaged from their life.

This and other cartoon animation techniques were discussed in the talk A Moving Experience at Google I/O 2013
