Collision in Cocos2d

A continuation of coloring sprites in Cocos2d, we will make the movable sprite change colors when it collides with another sprite.Start by getting the code for Coloring sprites in Cocos2d.

Now add this line of code to the end of your init method.

[self schedule:@selector(update:)];

Now your program will call the method update method over and over. Before it can call the method we must create it. Add the method to your program.

- (void)update:(ccTime)dt
CGRect RedRect = CGRectMake(_RedSquare.position.x(_RedSquare.contentSize.width/2),

CGRect moveRect = CGRectMake(_Square.position.x(_Square.contentSize.width/2),

CGRect GreenRect = CGRectMake(_GreenSquare.position.x(_GreenSquare.contentSize.width/2),

CGRect BlueRect = CGRectMake(_BlueSquare.position.x(_BlueSquare.contentSize.width/2),

if (CGRectIntersectsRect(moveRect, RedRect)){
[_Square setColor:ccc3(255,0,0)];

else if (CGRectIntersectsRect(moveRect, BlueRect)){
[_Square setColor:ccc3(0,0,255)];

else if (CGRectIntersectsRect(moveRect, GreenRect)){
[_Square setColor:ccc3(0,255,0)];

First thing we do is create a rectangle that tells the program where the sprite is. Next we test if the movable sprite has collided with any other of the sprites. If the sprite did collided with the other sprite then we change the movable sprite’s color.
