iOS Game Development with Sprite Kit's Full Profile
Games have always been a big deal on iOS, but up to now you needed to use an external framework or library—like Cocos2D—or write your own painstaking game engine code. Now, with iOS 7, Apple has added Sprite Kit, their first-ever game engine, which is officially built into the SDK. Sprite Kit is for creating 2D games, including features for animation, particle systems, and a full physics engine. Here, Simon Allardice shows how to create your own 2D game: building levels (aka scenes) with artwork, animation, and audio. He first explores the core concepts and vocabulary of Sprite Kit and then, by recreating examples of classic 2D games, shows how to create independent game objects with their own animations and behavior, implement collision detection, and work with physics and the powerful particle system. Note: This course concentrates on iOS, although Sprite Kit can also be used to create games for Mac OS X.
