A great start for anyone wanting to do a side scroller without getting their hands too dirty in the code.NN Neil North
Almost ALL the customization of the game can be done in Tiled Map Editor ( http://www.mapeditor.org ). You'll work in this amazingly simple map editing program to save new .tmx files for each level you want to add to the game. This program is where you will draw background and foreground tiles, define collidable areas, and choose where to spawn Entities, Objects or Particles. You'll even set the background image and background music for each level in the Tiled program.
The video documentation spends around 45 minutes building a level from scratch in Tiled and incorporating it into the Xcode project.
