Learn how to make 20 iOS games this weekend for 20 bones


99% off sale

Don't waste another weekend watching Rick and Morty reruns with Doritos all over your chest (full disclosure: I may have recently done this). Get inspired and reinvent yourself as a mobile game developer this weekend. Why buy a game for a buck when you can build it yourself?

Check out this deal: 20 different iOS game-building courses for 20 bucks is now on sale at the Destructoid Store. This is a limited-time sale on a bundle that includes four separate lessons in one package, hosted with no time limit on StackCourses. They're basically giving the courses away so you can try them out. We have more courses too if you get hooked. This is a great one to start with and it's almost free.

Can it be even cheaper? Yes, it can. You can also get $10 off your order if you refer a friend, so that's like 50 cents a course. Ridic.

The lessons are aimed at novice programmers who have never built a game in their lives, and start slowly with simple word and math-based games. By the end of the course you'll know how to build action games with stick figures and ninjas and platforms: All of the classes mimic popular best-selling games you're already familiar with, and example source code is also included. Best of all there's no time limit on the classes, so you can study at your own pace. By Lesson 3, you'll be building your own Candy Crush and Flappy Bird clones in no time! FlappyToid? Flappy Chungus? Dare to dream.

Learning game design is hard but building small little game experiments is definitely the best way to go about it. Just ask Sir Churros, I think he'd approve!
