A couple of quick updates about the simple “shoot ’em up” game tutorial app written in Swift with Sprite Kit that I posted a little while back:
- I’ve updated the code so that it works with the version of Swift compiled in Xcode 6.0 (and any Xcode 6 beta from 7 and later). The original code worked until Xcode 6 beta 7, when Apple made the Sprite Kit APIs optional-conformant. You can find an explanation of what that’s all about in my article Why your Swift apps broke in Xcode 6 beta 7 and the GM versions, and how to fix them.
- I’ve posted it to GitHub in a repo name SimpleSwiftShootEmUp. Grab and enjoy!
