Power up your inner game developer and start building incredible games with Sprite Kit. This book will teach you everything you need to know about Apple's 2D game engine. If you have some programming experience but you're new to game development, you'll hit the ground running, no complex tools required - just the Sprite Kit SDK.
You'll start out fast by building a single-finger infinite runner game, where the goal is to stay alive as long as possible and rack up points. You'll explore the Sprite Kit template, actions, and particle editor and watch your game take shape with an armed player ship, asteroids and enemy ships, explosions, power-ups, and variable difficulty. Then you'll stitch the game together with cutscenes, menus, and scoring.
