I build a 2D game a few years back using SpriteKit. Back then SpriteKit was just released and not very stable. I plan to rebuild the game towards the end of the year and wonder if I should stick with spritekit. Does anyone have recent experience with the framework? Highly appreciate any kind of discussion.
Cheers

I kinda wonder the same thing. I just recently started to look into SpriteKit. While it seems pretty stable, I wonder if SpriteKit really is a good choice if you want to make full fledged 2D games (for Apple devices), or if I’m better of using some other engine? 🤷‍♂️

 

Yes, especially as there hasnt been a single WWDC session on SpriteKit in recent years. Who knows, they might just deprecate it. I guess Im looking for some kind of insurance that they are still serious about it...

 

That is insane. Last one I could find was from 2016(!). You might be right...

Do you have any experience with other game engines?

Unfortunately, no. This is my first attempt at game dev. Have you?

No, Ill do some more research and either go with something well established or take my chances with sprite kit again
