The paper reviews some of the existing design patterns and available algorithms used in iPhone games development. The accompannying application is a template project for a 2D iPhone game. Issues including efficient rendering, extendibility and objects persistence are discussed and algorithms for dealing with these issues are devised.

The core ideas are based on the Model-View-Controller design pattern and the subsumption architecture which are combined together to provide behaviour-based modules that form game world objects.

Stardust Colonies

Stardust Colonies is a strategy game in which player-controlled units are aware of and affected by both their own memory and preferences, as well as by their colony's well-being.

Creeper

Creeper is a Java MVC framework for those who want to create multi-agent simulations (or games) and need something to build on. Creeper takes care of effective updating and rendering. You only need to specify the world objects and how they should look like.

Alien Strike

Alien Strike was an addictive copter shooter game sold on iTunes during 2009 and 2010, where you flew a UFO and fought against the futuristic Earth. The movement was controlled by holding a finger on the screen in order to go up, while the default UFO movement was to fall down. Player had the ability to shoot and drop bombs to watch the earthlings explode.

pyCreeper

The main purpose of pyCreeper is to wrap tens of lines of python code, required to produce graphs that look good for a publication, into functions. It takes away your need to understand various quirks of matplotlib and gives you back ready-to-use and well-documented code.
