Swift(SpriteKit) initializer errors keeps coming out....

I wrote a Init inside my class, but errors keep appearing in the init, there are three errors:

  1. need a override keyword ;
  2. required initializer must be provided by subclass;
  3. initializer may only declared within a type;

Here is my code:

import SpriteKit

class GameScene: SKScene {

var man:SKSpriteNode
var runningManTextures = [SKTexture]()

override func didMoveToView(view: SKView) {

func loadMan() {
    man.position.y -= man.size.height/2

func loadManTextures() {
    var runningAtlas = SKTextureAtlas(named: "man")
    for i in 1...3 {
        var textureName = "man_\(i)"
        var temp = runningAtlas.textureNamed(textureName)


    super.init(size: size)

override func touchesBegan(touches: NSSet, withEvent event: UIEvent) {
    /* Called when a touch begins */

    for touch: AnyObject in touches {

override func update(currentTime: CFTimeInterval) {
    /* Called before each frame is rendered */
