Gideros is a mobile development environment that can help you design games for various platforms using object oriented programming. In addition, it integrates support for automatic resolution selection and screen scaling, so your projects will look good on any device.
Comprehensive tools collection for developing cross-platform mobile games
The Gideros software package includes the Gideros Studio application where you get to create new games but also packs plug-ins, the SDK, and tools for building fonts, packing textures, or for previewing the projects.
To help you get started, Gideros provides an extensive documentation and example projects. The Gideros documentation can also be accessed online, and covers elementary object oriented programming notions, details about the automatic image resolution selection and screen scaling, a reference manual for supported functions, and more.
Worth mentioning is that, on top of the already available plug-ins, you can extend the Gideros Studio capabilities by importing your own plug-ins. You can use C, C++, Objective-C, or Java plug-ins, but you have to bind the code to Lua.
Develop new games and instantly test them locally or on real devices
Within the Gideros Studio interface, you get to build new games by taking advantage of the well organized IDE. Moreover, the studio is linked with the Gideros Player application, so you can readily test your projects as you go along.
The Gideros software package also includes the source code for the iOS, Android, Windows, and Windows Phone Gideros players. If you build and deploy these additional players on your devices, Gideros Studio will allow you to test your projects on the real devices, as long as they are connected to your WiFi network.
Mobile development environment that can help you code new games in no time
Gideros aims to provide a fast, intuitive, and fully featured environment for developing games that will look and work great on some of the most popular mobile platforms, regardless of the screen resolution.
Gideros takes advantage of OOP concepts, allows you to test your projects on numerous devices with ease, and you get to seamlessly extend its capabilities by importing your own plug-ins.
