    First of all, learn C. I suggest you to read a book called The C Programming Language. Then learn Objective-C. The best Objective-C book I know is called Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X. Then read a book about creating game engines. I suggest Pangea Software’s Ultimate Game Programming Guide for Mac OS X.

    They can be bought on Amazon, except by Pangea Software’s Ultimate Game Programming Guide for Mac OS X that can be downloaded for free from the author's website.
