We are making a brick-breaking game, so enter the name IVBricker and save it where you prefer (I saved the project in my user's Desktop folder). Xcode creates a folder named IVBricker where you specified, and then creates the project, as shown in Figure 3–3. 33 34 CHAPTER 3: Moving Images on a Small Screen—UIKit Controls Figure 3–3.

The icon named IVBricker, highlighted in Figure 3–3, represents your project.
The label components and their position in the view 39 40 CHAPTER 3: Moving Images on a Small Screen—UIKit Controls Now that we have added these labels, what’s next? The score label with the zeros is going to be where the code displays the game's score. In our game code, every time the score changes, we will need to update the value displayed in the score label. To update the score label from our game code, we first need to add a property to the view controller. We will name this new property scoreLabel.
When you set the center property, the view uses the size element of the frame property to reset the frame's origin element. center = CGPointMake(15,25); There are many other properties of UIView that can be useful in games programming, as you will see as we work through examples. Now let's create our first game. Talking about stuff only gets you so far. CHAPTER 3: Moving Images on a Small Screen—UIKit Controls Building a Simple Game We’ll now build a game in which a ball bounces around the screen, making colored bricks disappear when the ball hits them.
