How To Make Your Own iPhone Game

Trey Smith has just released his second video onto the Internet. This time, he shows you how to make an iPhone game. It’s a lot easier than you think.

In the video, you’ll see how Trey released his iPhone game, called Kolo’s Journey, only 18 days ago and has already sold over 2,000 copies at .99 cents each! OK, that’s not Angry Birds sales level but it’s still extremely impressive. You’ll find out how he did it, how he got it made in under two months and you’ll be able to download his “iPhone App Maker Template” for free as well.

It’s well worth watching and won’t cost you anything. Plus the template has both a Mac and PC version so that’s extra cool.

    Awesome stuff, seems like a great way to make money! I haven’t created any apps and not really on my 2011 roadmap but certainly something to think about.

    1. @Ian, creating iPhone apps … sounds like a tall order. Is that really possible for non-techies like me?

      1. John Chow says:

        Watch Trey’s video and you’ll see! :)

        1. Pretty weird John. I tried it on my chrome and IE and the website doesnt seem to load at all using both browsers.

            Have you tried firefox?

        2. d3so says:

          You can always have the work outsourced but I would like to learn as well.

          1. Trey is a very smart guy, no doubt about it.

            Being able to creaste apps must be great, feel good and to be able to profit from it is the cream or icing on top of that.

    2. dotCOMreport says:

      Interesting stuff. Anyone can do it, thanks to Trey. If you are interested in making money online (and if you are reading John Chow.com, you definitely are) this seems like a good opportunity.

      1. @dotCOMreport, yep I am starting to appreciate why John’s blog is the so-called authority in town. Kudos to John for making this blog so wonderful!

    3. this one really have scope.

      This video really opened the gate for many non techie background.

      But however I do think that there are many other fields from where you can earn money provided you have business mind.

      1. Neon SRT4 says:

        Yes, you are right jk.

    4. d3so says:

      I’m considering it as well. I wonder how simple it is to make an app. I always hear stories of kids who make good money with apps they’ve made.

  2. ikki says:

    good tutorial

    1. @ikki, what have you learnt from this post dude? Wanna share with us?

      1. Neon SRT4 says:

        Probably, you wont find an answer from @ikki, Because the Tutorial is little bit confusing, but it takes time to explain.

        1. hmm…since the website is not loading for me, I will just want to have a feel of what it’s like. The most important question to answer is if a non-techie like me can produce an iPhone app. Possible?

          1. Regarding Ikki and getting any response from him I think it won’t happen. I’d certainly like to see it though.

      2. d3so says:

        Lol it seems that many of you are cracking down on ikki. He’s defines spammer. I wish we had the option to flag comments.

      3. Why don’t you share with us what you learned?

  3. Allen Walker says:

    iPhone apps are hot these days. Would be a great income source! πŸ˜€

    Cheers,
    Allen

    1. @Allen Walker, well, it’s great if you know what you are doing. But the ability to lose focus and start to straying to alternative methods of getting income can be deadly. You won’t want to hop from project to project just because there is a next big thing in the market. I guess my strategy will be to just focus on one good method and monetize that. Don’t you agree?

      1. Its not always bad to try different things. If your main projects are doing good, then you can try other things as well. Like i always do and sometimes it works great.

        1. But what I will do if my main projects are doing good is that I will SCALE it up. If it is making me 4 figures now, I will hire more outsourcers to make 5 figures then!

    2. instead of iphone application go for android application.

      Android will have huge market in coming years.

      1. @ZK, Google might be big but its core competency is in its search, not phones. My guess is that Apple products will only grow better and more popular for at least the next 5 years!

          says:

          You both are wrong.

          Android is more popular than iOS , but iphone owners are richer than android owners, so they buy apps than andro users. andro users always look for free apps.

          If you create an android app. then put it on android market for free. almost all free apps are ad supported, you can make more money than selling it on andro mart. (through CPC & CPM Ads). :-)

          1. I think that for those with the skills to make apps they would be wise to make apps for both the iPhone and the Android.

            The Android will be more wide spread eventually if it already isn’t now.

  4. Neon SRT4 says:

    Nice Video. The Tutorial is Good, not so Excellent.

  5. Very nice.

    Another method to some easy money.

    Im check it out

    Thanks John

    1. tava tea says:

      Hi,

      You’re almost spot on.

      Not so easy in my point of view but still another way to make some money.

    2. yeah at the moment on net you can make money from several ways.

      This is quite easy for those who are from tech background and have some business skill as well.

      1. @ZK, does that mean that non-techies like me won’t be able to benefit from this? Hmm… just asking for those who have that concern too.

        1. You already asked a similar question, yea, I believe it’s for non-techies too.

  6. tava tea says:

    Hi,

    This is something new to me. I have never created software application but something to consider in near future.

    John, thanks for sharing.

    1. if you are from tech background than I must say that you should try with this.

      Try your hand on android and make it free to get maximum exposure.

      I simply believe in long term profit.

      1. Hey ZK,

        That is as pretty good advice. Long term profit is certainly what is worth aiming for.

        I wonder why you think Android is where he should try his hand on. I would say try it on both.

  7. I like Trey’s stories about how he built his affiliate and software sales empire but I would like him to tell more about how he got there – all the years he built backlinks etc.

  8. Marcus O. says:

    Does this game maker pertain to the android phones as well?

    1. Neon SRT4 says:

      No, i do not think so.

  9. Interesting video. Even a non-techie can create iPhone apps. Well that sounds great to me. I am not into iPhone arena yet, but I will get this product and I will enter the arena for sure.

    1. @Sathish, glad you are here. Would be nice if you can do a review of the product. Thanks in advance and let us know what you think!

  10. fas says:

    Making an app is one thing but among 1 million apps, selling it wont be easy.

    1. nick says:

      True, it’s all about people telling people. Customers are the best form of advertising, good or bad.

    2. It really depends on the app. The app itself has got to be something that most, if not everyone will want to play/use. Angry Birds does well because it’s a highly addictive game. You’ve got to get people to become addicts to your app in order to make a killing.

  11. This is a pretty interesting post John

    Thanks for the infio

    I might try to create an iphone game on my own

  12. Quitosana says:

    This is something new to me. I have never created software application but I would like to try in the near future.

  13. GTA 5 says:

    Interesting stuff John! I didn’t think that anyone could do it! It seems to be a great way to earn money online πŸ˜€

  14. I feel I hae missed the boat with the iPhone apps. I would certainly outsource any software I would sell, but one cannot do everything at the same time.

  15. I want to be able to make these types of games, unfortunately I’m so busy in college and building websites. However, I am taking programming courses so someday I hope that I will be able to come up with a game that will sell like butter in the sun! πŸ˜›
    Till then I will just have to continue building my reputation online.

    Have a great day!

  16. This a unique way to make money. There are so many ways to make money in real life and it’s the same online. I need to start learning designing. Iphone apps are really a hot thing so I’m not surprised this is very profitable.

  17. Creating an app for an i phone is a tall order for guys from my generation. The most technical thing I did as a kid was drop a quarter into the pinball machine at the local bowling alley! More power to people who can actually do this stuff.

    1. its definitely not an easy task. You need to have some knowledge. Even if you master some skills and release a new video game or app, you need a marketing plan. It’s not a piece of cake.

    2. Neon SRT4 says:

      Hmm, that’s really good.

  18. It’s Really not that Much Easy to create a iphone game. I have failed many times to do.
