Making games can be as fun as playing them, and the key to mastering both is practice. After working through this bundle of lessons, you’ll be ready for the iOS game-making equivalent of Carnegie Hall. Covering the how-tos with over 20 games in four different genres, this package from StackSkills usually goes for over $2,000. But right now the whole thing is just $20 at Cult of Mac Deals.
The first part of the lessons deals with math and word problem games, as much a brain-tease to make as they are to play. Part 2 covers classic games, from Tic-Tac-Toe to Whack-a-Mole, which’ll give you a feel for the mainstay game mechanics that started it all. In the third part, you’ll learn to clone popular sports games for iOS like Swing Copters and Jumpy Skating, while in part 4 you’ll create a set of addictive, action-packed games that involve airborne obstacles, landscapes riddled with hazards and drops, and more. Throughout, you’ll learn to use iOS kits to map out UIs for your games using the included source code, mastering Swift and Xcode, graphics and icons, and lots more in the process. You’ll also get the chance to post your apps on the iTunes store to generate revenue.
