Let’s talk about Cocos2D iPhone Game Development and Android Game Development. It’s been some time we at Morpheous are developing games in Cocos2D and have made some very successful games. So it would be appropriate to share with you all about the game development engine we use and also what is our experience so far on the same. I hope this will help you in deciding for companies like ours to move forward with and get your Game idea converted into reality. I will keep it non-technical so we can be all on the same page by the end of this article.
So, what is Cocos2D and why companies like Morpheous are using it for the development of 2D game? One thing I need to tell you is for sure the platform we do iPhone Game Development and Android Game Development on is not that easy. There are many problems we face which needs more than a logical or syntax approach where you can just write few syntaxes and it’s over. It is not at all like that, sometimes we have to write many combinations of codes just to solve one error. This is just to give you an idea of the complexity we face in game development. But hey, who cares when you really enjoy doing it, and that’s what game development team at Morpheous is famous for.
To be back on track, Cocos2D is quite an interesting thing to venture with. First is that it does give regular updates in case there is some major bug found. Also it blends into Xcode very well for iPhone Game Development. For Android Game Development, it is been bit hard to get things working as the engine itself has not been updated much yet. I still won’t complain much about it though, as it has been a pleasant journey for us in both developments and are very successful in it. When Cocos2D started we really did not thought that it is going to be something which we are going to use, but as the time passed by it was clear that it is really one good engine with some quality features for iPhone Game Development and Android Game Development, and so as for iPad Game Development also.
I hope this will be helpful to you to understand some bit of iPhone Game Development and Android Game Development process. You can always go through rest of my articles for more information on relevant subject of mobile gaming and application development.
