Those looking for a quick, simple and, more importantly, cheap
route into the world of iOS game development should consider today's Joystiq Deal, the iOS 8 Game Hacker Bundle.
The Bundle includes primers on both Apple's Swift programming language and the ubiquitous Unity 3D game engine, but today's pièce de résistance is the iOS 8 Game Source Code Pack, which features four fully-featured templates based on popular games such as Threes!
and Flappy Bird
. Instead of crafting a game from scratch, users can build on these templates to learn all about the more complex aspects of iOS game creation, including multiplayer functionality, in-game item monetization and Gamecenter support.
Normally priced at $994, the iOS 8 Game Hacker Bundle is currently available
to Joystiq Deals users for $59. This deal is only available for the next three days.
