Could not cast value of type 'UIView' (0x112484eb0) to 'SKView' (0x111646718)

Go to your Storyboard, select your UIViewController that contains the SpriteKit game, and select the view from left menu:

Now go to Identity Inspector and make sure Class is SKView and not UIView:

You should now be able to compile this part of code from your UIViewController:

// Configure the view.SKView * skView = (SKView *)self.view;

Or in Swift:

let skView = self.view as! SKView

For those who are not wanting to use a Storyboard, you can simple create the view as an SKView in the ViewController's loadView function.

class ViewController: UIViewController {  override func loadView() {    self.view = SKView()  }  override func viewDidLoad() {    let skView = view as! SKView    ...  }}

Simple fix. You just have to change the View in which every view controller your using from UIView to SKView.
