Hi, I am trying to make a 2d game but I want to know, how do I do sprite animation(The animation of something exploding or someone walking.)

Thanks

Being so new to iPhone development myself I can't answer your specific question, but have you checked out the sample code at Apple's iPhone Dev Center (http://developer.apple.com/iphone/) site?

There are several ways to do it... and it partly depends on how you've designed the app so far... definitely check out Apple's docs though.

That kind of 2d animation is usually done by presenting a series of images in order - check out this sheet to see the kinds of images a game artist would provide:

You usually do *not* have separate sprites for arms, legs, head, etc, as you you would in 3d work.

You can display those images in order using something like UIImageView.animationImages, like so:
