If you think about it, it works on a biological level. Two parents create a child. David Reichelt: We had a neighbor who lived a couple of streets down the road, when I was about five years old. It was something with floppy discs. I was too young to recall. This is about , My dad got us a Nintendo when I was nine, so that would have been about I grew up playing Nintendo games.
To this day Nintendo is still my favorite platform. I have all their systems. In between, I went into the military. I was a music major. I was a theater major. I worked as a professional magician for a couple of years. I like performing, but just for fun. I went through life trying a lot of different things. I was always curious. In a friend of mine that I met through the theater program in Cal State Northridge, she moved out of her apartment. I remember she had a Facebook posting asking if someone wanted to take over her lease.
I was in Simi Valley at the time, my hometown, which is where I live now. I have a house out here. At the time I was working on my magic career, and she was only five minutes from Hollywood, so I decided to move out there. It was the best decision ever, because her roommate, who was still there—the first day I came out of my room he was sitting there at his computer making a video game.
As curious as I usually am, I went up and asked what he was doing. I outsource some of the development and the artwork and tell people how to make this. I sold all of that to finance my first game, which came out in early I had all these games on the Nook app store, the Barnes and Noble app store, and then their app store closed and all my games went down with the Titanic. Reichelt: I literally stopped having a social life.
I stopped doing everything so I could focus on this. The first game, I outsourced the development and it took about six months to make a game that, with my knowledge now, would only have to take a week or two. They fleeced me pretty good on that one. Not too bad of an ROI. You could make a really simple game a lot quicker than learning how to program. I spent about a month learning Game Salad, and then over the next six months I made 40 games. I would spend, on average, 15 hours on my computer each day building games, real simple games.
My day job was cleaning swimming pools. My last job I was a valet and I could make my own schedule, so it was the same thing. I could make enough money to pay my rent, and then just spend the rest of my time at home making video games. Reichelt: No. In fact, the exact opposite. My credit was not very good at the time. I was under a lot of financial pressure, but I was determined. I felt I had found something I could excel at. As frustrating as it was a lot of the time in the first two years—I had all these bouts of depression and whatnot, but I stuck to this plan of learning and applying everything I could for game design until I made something that enabled me to do it full time.
Reichelt: Right. I was a music major at the time. I was in Bakersfield, California. We had moved out there from Simi Valley when I was I joined as a combat medic. I went to Iraq in But that was a great experience. I learned a lot from having that job, having to treat people. I was in the military officially from to In Iraq there was no front line. You get trained to look for things that could be IEDs, improvised explosive devices, along the road. The training basically tells you anything can be a bomb — a crater, a dead cow, a can, anything.
We got blown up a couple of times. Fortunately, I never got injured, but we had some people injured. I was the medic, so I was the one treating people when things would happen. I spent a year over there. When the screen is tapped, you want the player to jump up, and then start to fall back down due to gravity. Physics bodies already have gravity by default, but the current value is a bit weak for this object and gameplay. Make it stronger by adding this line at the bottom of didMove to: :.
The player node happens to pass harmlessly through the obstacle node. You only want the player to pass through if its color matches the section of the obstacle it crosses. This is a different type of interaction than collisions, which SpriteKit calls contact. To make this work, you first need to add physics bodies to the circle sections.
This creates a physics body with the same shape as the section node, reusing the same path. The categoryBitMask defines this is as a different type of object from the other physics bodies in the game. The collisionBitMask set to 0 means this body should not collide with any other bodies, since you want the player to be able to pass through. The main new part here is the contactTestBitMask , which says that you want to be notified when an object with category PhysicsCategory.
Player is in contact with this section of the obstacle. SpriteKit allows you to set a delegate that will receive these notifications. The if let line checks to make sure both physics bodies have an attached SKShapeNode. You then check the fillColor of the two nodes.
Note that when the game restarts, the circle obstacle does not get removed and a new one is stacked on top. There are a couple of changes needed to make this happen. Add two more properties to the top of GameScene. Next, find the line in addCircleObstacle that sets the position of the obstacle node and replace it with:. Here you add the newly created obstacle node to the obstacles tracking array, and use the count of obstacles to set the position of the container for the new obstacle.
Removing the nodes from their parent — the scene — clears them from the screen. There should now be three calls to addObstacle. Build and run the project. Even though there are three obstacles, you can only see two of them on the screen. Adjusting the view as the player moves up the screen is your next task. By setting the position of the camera, the other nodes in the scene are moved automatically.
Add a property to the top of GameScene. This creates an instance of SKCameraNode , positions it in the center of the screen, and sets it as the camera property for the scene. Now, changing the position of the camera will move everything else in the opposite direction.
In this case, there are three things you are looking for. First, if the player advances past an obstacle, you need to add a new obstacle to the scene. You check against obstacles. Each time the player passes an obstacle, a new one will be created, so there will always be three obstacles already added to the scene above the player.
The extra obstacle offscreen is so that the new obstacle does not suddenly appear when the camera position changes. The second condition is to see if the player node is in the top half of the screen. You convert the player position into the coordinates of the camera node, and the zero point of a node is in its center. When the player moves into the top half of the screen, you move the camera up.
Finally, the player dies if they drop the screen on the bottom. This can't happen at the beginning because of the ledge you added, but can happen once you start scrolling up. It would be a more interesting game with more than one type of obstacle. There are many different things you can add, but a square is simple to build.
Building the square obstacle is very similar to building the circle. You create a path for the bottom section of the square, then rotate it around to create the other three sections. Note that this shape copies around counterclockwise, and rotates at a different speed so that its behavior is different than the circle obstacle. Here, you generate a random integer that is either 0 or 1, and use that result to decide which obstacle to build.
You may have to pass several obstacles, or die a few times, to see both types due to the nature of random numbers. A game is much more fun when you can brag to your friends about beating their high scores. To add scores to your game, start by adding properties to the top of GameScene. Note that you add the label to cameraNode , not the scene itself, so that the label doesn't scroll off the screen when the player moves up. With these pieces of code, you update the score each time the player passes an obstacle, and reset it to 0 when the player dies.
Sometimes simple mechanics can make for fun little games. You can download the completed project here. Now that you've got a complete game, you may want to spruce it up a bit. One thing you could add is more randomness.
For example, the player could start as a random color, and the obstacles could rotate in a random direction, at random speeds. There are also many different obstacles you could add, such as circles inside circles or plus signs.

Color Switch Trivia sounds fun! Email us at support colorswitch. This game is absolutely amazing, it keeps my busy during long car rides and long plane rides for quite a while.
But overall this is a must try game! Thank you so much for taking the time to read my feedback I hope you have an incredible day! The new modes are cool, one of my favorite modes brick got a sequel brick 2 , and the music is a bop! However, i noticed a lack of something. If you tapped the screen, the ball would go downwards quickly, no matter if it was going up or not. But the main focus would be the holes in the ground, because when you got your circle into one, the gravity would shift and your circle would be bouncing on the underside of the platform, going down and then up instead of up and then down, and tapping the screen would make the circle go up quickly instead of down, and going into another hole in the ground would shift the gravity back to normal.
The mode also had an endless mode. Thanks for the review. We didn't remove Swoop from Color Switch. A situation beyond our control required that we rebuild Color Switch in this new version. The old is gone but we will continue to work on this new version and hopefully get you some new favorites.
