WatchKit extension also added for devs building games for Apple Watch
Marmalade Technologies has snuck a couple of handy new features into the latest update to its streamlined Platform.
Released just before Christmas, Marmalade Platform is a one-stop shop that gives developers access to all of the company’s key tools and services.
The new maintenance release – v8.2.1 – fixes a number of bugs and makes minor improvements, but it also adds support for iOS’ 3D Touch feature. Introduced with the iPhone 6S last year, this allows devs to detect how hard players are pressing their touch screen and create different in-game responses.
Marmalade Platform 8.2.1 also adds support for the WatchKit extension, which helps developers build games for Apple’s smartwatch.
