1.1 Introduction

In this course, you’ll learn how to create a simple side-scrolling game using Swift 3 and SpriteKit. Along the way, you’ll learn some common skills that you can use in many other types of games. Let’s get started!

The source code for this course is adapted from Kevin Pham’s Simple Sprite Kit tutorial. The original source code is available from Kevin’s GitHub repo.

1.1 Introduction

Hey there, Tuts fans, Derek Jensen here again and I've recently gone back to playing games. Every once in a while I like to go back to what originally got me into computers in the first place and that's games. So when I start to dive into these things I like to get my hands dirty and I like to play with stuff. And when I do that I typically uncover something that I wanna share with you guys. So today we're gonna be talking about creating a very basic SpriteKit game, but this time we're gonna start to dig into side scrolling, infinite runner, parallax background style games. Now while that may sound a little bit complicated, it really isn't. If you can handle some basic math, have a decent understanding of the Swift programming language and have maybe dabbled a little bit with the SpriteKit built into iOS, then this course is for you. So hold on to your hats. It's time to get into game mode.
