Cocos2D SpriteBuilder

Cocos2D-SpriteBuilder is a framework for building 2D games, demos, and other graphical/interactive applications for iOS, Mac and Android. It is based on the Cocos2D design, but instead of using Python it uses Swift or Objective-C.

Cocos2D SpriteBuilder is:

  • Fast
  • Free
  • Easy to use
  • Community Supported

Creating New Projects

New Cocos2D projects are created with SpriteBuilder. SpriteBuilder is, just like Cocos2D, free and open source. You can get SpriteBuilder from or from the Mac App Store. Projects created using SpriteBuilder contains the complete Cocos2D source code, and after the project has been created using SpriteBuilder is optional.

SpriteBuilder also allows you to update the Cocos2D version in your project, to newest version, making it trivial to always keep you project updated to latest Cocos2D version.

You can find the full Cocos2D documentation and user guide at our documentation page.
