In this first video we’ll crack open the Empty iOS and tvOS Starter Kit to begin making a retro Donkey Kong style game. This “emptied out” kit has very few graphics imported to it, but contains the Swift and Sprite Kit code to start with a home screen, advance to your main game (your game engine), pause the game (with options to restart the game or go back to the home menu), and most importantly, it supports external game controllers right away, for both iOS or tvOS. So whatever dream game you plan on making, you’ll have a huge leg up with all the enhanced functionality in place.
This series of lessons will start you at the jumping off point where you’ve already got the kit, and now want to add assets and begin programming.
Never lose your place.
