Game Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for professional and independent game developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I want to make a simple 2d game that would run on both Android and iPhone. Since coding it separately for each platform would take some time, I thought of using an engine, that would be able to port to both platforms.

I wanted to ask, what engine would you recommend, as there are lots of them, like Corona, Marmalade, etc.

Thanks )

'there are lots of them' : could you please quote some other framework you know of ? –  GameAlchemist Dec 17 '12 at 8:43
    
We can recommend lots of them. Every framework or engine has at least a few fans :) –  Liosan Dec 17 '12 at 15:26

"which tech should I use" questions are off topic for the site. See the faq. –  Tetrad Dec 17 '12 at 17:47

My suggestion is Game Maker Studio, depending on your 'simple' keyword.

http://impactjs.com/ would be a nice choice since HTML5 works for both platforms and it's pretty easy to develop there. A free option would be http://www.limejs.com/
