Role Playing Games with Sprite Kit – Subscriber Access

Role Playing Games with Sprite Kit and Objective C - Subscription Access
In this series of lessons on Sprite Kit, we will create a physics-based world with a roaming hero that can collide with other heroes (and make them follow the leader). Nearly everything will be property-list driven and adjustable by changing text in a plist file. We will program an option for each character to include / exclude front animations, side animations or back animations. We will also make each character attack, emit particles, receive damage, have a health meter, advance levels, restart levels and much, much more! All using Xcode and Sprite Kit.
