I just had a pretty good idea for a mobile game and I'm having a little trouble selecting what tools or languages to use for the job.
I have experience with flash and AS3 and I know I can put that onto mobile devices via Adobe Air. What I found kind of frustrating was that I have 5 games on my Samsung galaxy tablet and they all look like they were made in flash, but they didn't use Air. The only game that required Air on my tablet was my game that I made in flash. Anyways, how do you guys think/know they are programmed?
A simple game like angry birds... is that programmed in pure java or something or do they use some kind of engine. I've heard of Unity and it looks pretty cool, but now I just found ShiVa and that also looks pretty sick. I'm trying to make a Castle Crashers type game. Side scrolling/2D type of thing. Thanks in advance
