Some time ago I mentioned a tutorial on creating a Candy Crush style game with Swift and Sprite Kit.
Here’s an in-depth step by step tutorial with source code submitted by Stefan that shows step-by-step how to create a simple shooter game using SpriteKit and Swift. The tutorial goes beyond creating the game and also shows how to implement iAd and Game Center.
You can find the tutorial in 7 parts:
Part 1 – Project setup, sprite basics and movement basics
Part 2 – Enemies, bullets and shooting
Part 3 – Adding the game overlay HUD
Part 4 – Game logic and collisions
Part 5 – Sound and particle effects
Part 6 – Integrating with iOS Game Center
Part 7 – Adding iAds
You can find the code repository for the tutorial on Github here.
This video shows the created game in action:
A nice tutorial series for those developing games with SpriteKit and Swift.
