Balloon popping game

tropictropic Posts: 120New Users @ @
I would like to make a simple balloon popping game, where the balloons will just fly up from the bottom of the screen, and then the player can pop them, basically something like this

If I just want to do it as simple as possible in Xcode (no other frameworks like unity or cocos2d etc.), what animation functions would you suggest, e.g. UIDynamicAnimator or something else?

I imagine some of the events would be
  • Randomly spawn x number of balloons
  • Have them fly upwards, perhaps in a zigzag'ish path
  • They do not have to be able to collide
  • React to touch events
  • and then pop balloon(s) when touched (disappearing with a pop sound)

    That can all be done easily using UIImage Animation, UIImageView, and Touches.

    There were quite a few tutorials back in 2009-10 describing how to do that.

    You don't need anything fancy to create such an app.
