Who Is This For?
Whether you're a seasoned programmer or a programming tadpole dipping its tail into the proverbial water, this Bloc Book is for you. It provides a step-by-step process which anyone can follow to create their very first iOS game written in Swift.
Who Are We?
Bloc is the world's largest online bootcamp, with immersive online programs in iOS, Android, Web Development, Frontend, and UX/UI Design, and have helped hundreds of people launch new careers. We believe in learning through building real apps, which is why we created Swiftris.
This tutorial will introduce you to the basics of Swift before acquainting you with some of its more advanced features. After completing this tutorial you will be comfortable enough to write Swift code on your own. This tutorial also covers the fundamentals of SpriteKit, Apple's 2D game engine API.
Here's What You'll Build
You may be familiar with other block-dropping games but don't be fooled, they all tore a page out of our book.
Well, maybe some of the ideas came from a Russian gentleman who wrote the very first iteration of it. Fine, we've built an homage to one of the greatest puzzle games ever made and its name happens to rhyme with Swiftris.
If you like that game , you're going to love the one you build yourself.
