I am new to programming. I did some basic stuff with Python like Hangman and tic-tac-toe. I want to develop a game on iOS and possibly Android in the future. I don't want to throw myself in the Objective C, which is likely to take months to learn. I read about GameSalad and LiveCode and they seem relatively easy to learn for making iPhone games. The actual game I am thinking is similar to a Slot machine game.
Can anyone guide me? Which one should I use? Are there other viable options for beginners like me?
