best framework to start 2d game unity 2D or corona SDK

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I'm a guy that some experience in programming i'm, working for last 2 years with nodejs javascript but i've previous worker with many others, however i'm new in gamming development only test a bit of unity3d (lets say 3 hours maximum) and corona SDK,  to be honest i'ad like more of corona SDK first because is more my styling using more coding style (unity have many hiding options at least is my first impression) other thing that i like on corona is the way of they have all documentations docs and blog, i'm able to finish my first draft of my game in only 3/4 days (with no experience on gaming) thanks to great documentations and support. Now i'll need to finish all the designer and all the integration with external services with google game and apple game center.

 

so i ask its corona SDK a reliable options? or its better start to use unity from the begin? How is the performance on corona?

 

I forget to say my idea is a simple 2D game, with a player and some enemies jumping from platform to another.

 

thanks for reply

Corona SDK has what you need so I am not sure why you would be torn with the idea of which one to use. You said yourself you are able to get up and going with Corona SDK and the documentation is great. I personally use Unity and I find it really intuitive but everyone is different.

 

The performance is good with both of the choices, of course a bad coder and program in the fastest language and highest performance engine and still would suffer not because of the technology but the programmer him/herself.

Thanks for your reply i'm only ask that because many people are using unity3D and i don't want to discovery that corona have a killing problem/limitation after i finish my project. I now that unity and corona have a lot of 3rd party plugins like for using e.g with google games services, and i like that. And right now is equal for me learn corona or unity because i'm only on the begin. 

 

One more concern is about target frameworks i only want for windows phone, android and ios and i'm able to that on booth. But i know that unity is able to compile our project to web with corona i'm not able to do that.

 

thanks
