You’ll get professionally drawn sprites and imagery that’ll have you proud to show your learning to friends and family.

The approach in Swift Game Programming for Absolute Beginners follows the structure of a game rather than the syntax of a language.

Along the way you’ll learn the language, but always in the context of fun and games.
