SpriteKit action groups let you run multiple SpriteKit actions simultaneously. The grouped actions become a new action that can go into a sequence, and SpriteKit automatically ensures all actions in a group finish before the sequence continues.
The code below makes a spaceship shrink down to 10% of its original size while fading out, with both actions happening at the same time:
let sprite = SKSpriteNode(imageNamed:"Spaceship") let scale = SKAction.scale(to: 0.1, duration: 0.5) let fade = SKAction.fadeOut(withDuration: 0.5) let group = SKAction.group([scale, fade]) sprite.run(group)
