Untitled. Swiftris: Build Your First iOS Game with Swift. We'll need to create a new project to build Swiftris in.

Swiftris: Build Your First iOS Game with Swift

An Xcode project organizes everything your app needs into one convenient place. Let's begin by creating a brand new game project in Xcode by doing either of these two things: Click Create a new Xcode project from the Welcome screen: Or Select File > New > Project… from the file menu: When the new project window appears, choose Game from under the iOS > Application category and press Next. The next window beckons you to customize options for your project. Press Next and Xcode will ask where to place your new project. After saving it should open Xcode to your brand new Swiftris project, specifically to the project properties screen. Result Run the default game project by pressing on your keyboard or by clicking the little play button in the top left corner.

Congratulations, you're infinitely closer to a completed Swiftris game than you were 10 minutes ago. Cordova - Xamarin 2.0 vs Appcelerator Titanium vs PhoneGap.

In any cases, chances are low that we can avoid buying a Mac for the compilation/packaging and a Developer program ticket – but that’s a small tax compared to the potential.
