How to Create a Virtual iOS Joystick with Swift and Sprite Kit

Today we added two videos for our subscribers on controlling sprites with a virtual joystick in an iOS or Mac OS app. These two are just the first in a series this week where we’ll explore using the joystick in an overhead racing or flight style game, a top-down RPG type world, or a side scrolling game. As usual these days, this is a Swift 1.2 and Sprite Kit video tutorial. Subscribers can get started here and download the project files for these first two videos here.

For non-subscribers, you can watch the first video in this series for free…
