Share your SpriteKit experiences...

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 Iā€™m better of using some other engine? šŸ¤·ā€ā™‚ļø

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...

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