Tutorial: Creating A Candy Crush Style Game In Swift With Sprite Kit

Apple has done an excellent job with the documenting the Swift programming language and I’ve been asked a couple of times about tutorials and so far by the best are on Apple’s own Swift Programming language page.

Here’s a tutorial from Matthijs Hollemans that takes a different approach to teaching the basics of the Swift programming language guiding you through the creation of a Candy Crush style match 3 game using Sprite Kit.

You’ll learn the basics of creating classes and functions, declaring variables, using arrays, dictionaries, conditional statements, and more in a fun by example way.

Here’s an image of the game built from the tutorial in action:


You can find the tutorial in two parts here: Part 1, Part 2.

A nice tutorial for learning the basics of Swift and Sprite Kit.
