I have just started developing games for iPhone in Cocos2d and am currently working on a Box2D prototype. I know this is not an easy start, but I have experience in the AS3 port of the physics engine. And ... I am stubborn.

My question is: How do you implement and create your levels in the project. Is there a good parser out there or maybe a nice approach you guys know of? I am looking for a way to create curved slopes and of course circles and rectangles.

I have read about LevelSVG but it seems to add a lot of functionality that I don't want. I am a Flash game developer and I am used to writing the game logic by myself. Is this product worth the money if all you need is the parser?

You could port the Box2D SVG parser implementation from the Box2D forums (you said that you have experience with AS3) .

It doesn't look bloated to me.

Thanks. I will look into that. – Mattias Nov 30 '10 at 22:32
