iPhone App of the Week – Sketch Nation Studio

noredink0058-2012-04-19-14-29.png

Ever wanted to build your own iOS game? Ever wanted to sell that game? Ever wanted to be rich and famous for making and selling your iOS game? Have you wanted to do these things, but you don’t have the coding knowledge of an Omar Ghosn?

Well fear not, now there is Sketch Nation Studio. The free app for iPhone, iPod Touch and the iPad. You can make an either vertical jumping game or a side scrolling game. You get to create the characters, create the enemies, create the background, chose the music and much more. It’s a lot of fun and to make a good and entertaining game takes a bit more thought than one might think. This is a great idea for students to get them to create something, try it out, edit it, try it again.

The games can be uploaded and Studio Nation and if it is selected they will get it on the iTunes store. You, as the game creator, will make 35 cents out of every dollar. Not bad for not having the coding skills of one Omar Ghosn. You can get it free from the iTunes store here.

  1. Hi Omar / Patrick,

    I would also like to echo Linden’s comment – something else related to his post is http://www.reportcommentbank.co.uk – this is a school report writer for teachers and has the largest collection of teacher comments in the world – over 70,000 to date. Also would love to have it added to your site.

    Best wishes

    Duncan

    • Duncan,

      Thanks for the comment. I’ll take a look at it. You submitted a second comment and I deleted that since it was nearly identical to this one.

      Thanks for stopping by,

      Patrick

    Hi Patrick and Omar,

    re. http://www.schoolreportwriter.com

    (you said it’s ok to just post an unrelated comment!).
    I’ve developed a new online, free-to-use school report writer. As well as all the usual statement bank storing, his/her, she/he, name replacing it has a neat feture where you can create drop-down lists and use them in your statements. Easiest if you have a quick look at http://www.schoolreportwriter.com. Any feedback would be great! And if you feel like adding it to your site, even better!
    BTW which screen-recording software did you use to make the report writing video you put on you tube – I’d like to make a vid about my site!
    All the best and hope you like my free site,
    Linden
