Which package?

Recommended Posts

Hello Forumers,

I am thinking of creating a simple game engine to simplify development on mobile devices.

Basically I need to find something that allows you to build the application for the Iphone, Adroid and a Windows Phone 7.

Then I can use that to build my commands on top of, drawSprite(), loadSprite(), playSound() and more advanced things.

What is the best package to do this?
So overall I need something that allows you to build apps for the three main mobile devices.

Hi. Instead of starting from scratch, you might want to take a look at the [url="http://www.getmoai.com"]Moai platform[/url]. It already encompasses iOS and Android, and it's an open source project, so you could write a Windows Phone 7 host.

I work for Zipline Games (the company that created Moai), and we're always interested in source contributions. Feel free to PM or email me if you're interested.

Generalizing code for ios and android isn't too hard. They both run opengl es which is a huge win and can be compiled from c/c++. Wp7 is c# only at this time so its not as straightforward but with mono targeting android and I believe ios maybe you could target all three platforms that way
