Game engine on ios

Recommended Posts

I want to make a spelunky type game for mobile, and I would like to develop it on mobile.  I mean on mobile, not just for mobile.  I have an ios ipad. Bare minimum requirements: 2d graphics, asset import, audio, spritesheets, physics, and touch input.  Helpful but not essential features: map editor, spritesheet editor, and sound editor.  Is there anything like that?

Interesting question -- I've been working on a game built with SpriteKit, using Xcode (and working on it from a Mac)... Googling around I came across an app called Codea which looks like it may have some of what you're looking for? Alternatively you might look into building the core functionality of the game using a more traditional engine, but seek out iPad apps for working on specific parts of the content such as pixel art, level data, etc. Good luck and I'd be curious to hear more about your project or if you come across an ideal solution!
