Sprite Kit provides a graphics rendering and animation infrastructure that you can use to animate arbitrary textured images, or sprites. Sprite Kit uses a traditional rendering loop where the contents of each frame are processed before the frame is rendered. Your game determines the contents of the scene and how those contents change in each frame. Sprite Kit does the work to render frames of animation efficiently using the graphics hardware. Sprite Kit is optimized so that the positions of sprites can be changed arbitrarily in each frame of animation. Sprite Kit also provides other functionality that is useful for games, including basic sound playback support and physics simulation. In addition, Xcode provides built-in support for Sprite Kit so that you can create complex special effects and texture atlases directly in Xcode. This combination of framework and tools makes Sprite Kit a good choice for games and other apps that require similar kinds of animation.

Finally! After 4 years of work, Phobos Children is free to download from the App Stores of U.S.A, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Spain, Mexico and Japan. The game is in three languages, English, Spanish and Japanese.

Phobos Children is a surprising and fresh new entry to the mobile RPG genre, changing the classic turn-based puzzles by an action game that require reflexes and planification, similar to the arcade machines. Still it's a match-3 game, but the orbs falls through the screen, and they will damage the player's team if they hit the lower part. Each orb pattern is hand-made, avoiding randomness and luck. The game rewards the skill and the good planification of each mission.

The RPG part is similar to other Japanese mobile RPGs: character collection, leveling up and evolving, and also gacha. Everything is wrapped inside a sci-fi and fantasy setting, with an easy to follow but compelling storyline.

Please download it and try it! We are looking forward to hearing your feedback.
