Best way to control LED matrix

Hello, I recently developed an iPhone app that allows customization for a 8x11 LED Matrix (instructables link), and one of the features is drawing cool animations when pressing a button. These animations are simple like a rainbow moving or just fade colors. Is there a program or something I can use to develop more complex animations like a Mario character jumping or pac man animation. It doesnt have to be anything super cool but ive been using the same animations for a year. I just dont know how to code in FastLED well enough to make animations. Thank you.

Edit: maybe something like this youtube video(DIY Smart Interactive RGB LED Table - Touch-Sensor - YouTube)
