My name is Yohann, I will be your instructor.
I want to thank you for your interest in this course.
This course comes with the Super Zombie Juggle source code. Now I’m sure you’ve heard about the Flappy Bird game, haven’t you?.
The source code we give you is a clone of the flappy bird’s owner second best selling game called Super Ball Juggling.
Many of my students have been riding the Flappy Bird trends and made tons of money with it, and I’ve got to admit I did too!
If you’ve ever tried to make a mobile app, you know how hard it can be especially if you’re missing a step, you could get stuck for hours or even days, and would end up giving up.
Now you’ve come to the right place. In this course I show you every single step you need to get the game published in the app store,
This game will bring you passive income because we’ve integrated advertising banners and in-app purchases right out of the box.
Now the game Super Ball Juggling is gaining popularity and you don’t want to be late to the party,
So don’t wait for another opportunity and come ride the wave with us
See you in the classroom.
In this lesson, we're going through the Apple developer license registration process.
Learn what XCode is used for, how to find it, install it, open it and yourself.
IMPORTANT: the source code is in the download tab of this lecture!
UPDATE: Since the new XCode with iOS 7.1, some of you are getting an error building the app. Please check the next lecture on how to solve this (remove 64-bit architecture, just armv7 and armv7s)

Going through the creation and install of the iPhone Distribution Certificate.
Creating Identifiers and provisioning profiles
We need to setup an AppLovin advertising account to use it in our game, and also get paid.
UPDATE: The name of the game in the advertising account does not have to match the name of the game in the app store. Here, we are using "Pinball" game because this section is taken from another course. Feel free to name it at your will.
Here, we're going through the process of deciding what theme to use and how we will get graphical images.
part 2 - We're creating game graphics on our own. The easy way it to just get already made packages from https://www.AppFresh.us/graphics/
part 3 - We're creating game graphics on our own for the main characters. The easy way it to just get already made packages from https://www.AppFresh.us/graphics/
part 4 - We've created the graphics for the main characters ans are now testing them out in the iOS simulator
Here, we're creating the graphics for the main level background image
We're creating the graphics for the backgroundimage of the main menu.
We're changing the ball graphics from a zombie brain to an abused teddy bear's head!
We're customizing the 4 medals (bronze, gold, silver, and platinum), instead of having the symbol of a brain, they will have the symbol of a teddy bear's head.
We're going through the customization of the menu items, such as the "game Over" label, the "score" board, and we're discussing the ones that are optional to change.
Showing you how to create your own game icon using Adobe Photoshop CS suite or just its open source equivalent, named GIMP (gimp.org)
We're modifying the images that are displayed when the game loads. We call them launch images (or splash screens)
We've made a lot of modifications so far. It is good habit to take a break and test how things are doing.
If you don’t feel like creating the graphics on your own or you don’t want to hire a graphic designer, or waste time waiting for the graphics. Get the graphic packs from https://www.AppFresh.us
