Mobile game designing

Which tool i have to use after designing the all parts of the game. I need to please help. I design my game and want to program it which tool is best.

Check out Unity 3D. You will save a lot of time and effort and actually have something built sooner than later.

So where could i learn about unity 3d online. So that i start work on it.

Panka Juhasz Sorry I missed your comment here. Check out this link. http://unity3d.com/learn everything you need is right there. It's a great framework. My friend is already working on multiplayer functionality.

Hey Pankaj,

Are you interested in designing some apps to give to other people to program or would you rather program them yourself?

If you are more interested in designing them for other people to program then all you will need to do is open up your favourite image editor and start designing. You will be able to find templates for different phones in various places online and that is all you will need.

However, if you want to program them yourself then you can either learn Java or Objective-C. Objective-C is used to program iPhone, iPad and Mac apps whereas Java is used for Android and various other things.

Please note that to write iPhone apps using Objective-C you will need to own a Mac.

I hope this helps you out, please feel free to ask any more questions.


I want to design and develop by myself .. tell me which tool is best for develop games.

It depends on your personal preference and what resources you have available.

If you have a Mac then it is up to you whether you develop Android or iOS games whereas if you use Linux or Windows you have no choice but to develop Android.

I have mac and want to know which software i have to install on mac for android and ios game development. I usually design my graphics in adobe photoshop and illustrator. But dont know which software helps to program or code that make my game.

Android Studio for Android and xCode for iOS.

Ok thanx is these softwares are best for game development. Some says unity is best for making games in cross platforms.

I would highly recommend the said tools. The Treehouse courses based on Android and Objective-C use these pieces of software.

Ok sir thnx very much .how can i fully learn java and objective c online.

You can do that right here on Treehouse. Head over to the 'track' section of the site and either follow the Android or iOS track.

Ok its great thax so much . I like your answers very much and hope these are very helpful for me in future.

No problem, best of luck with your apps.


iOS is for apple. Objective-c and new language swift . Java is android and you can use it on mac , with visual studio and eclipse .

If you want to design a game like flappy bird , its a 2D game so yo uwill need to have different images that changes.

If you want to design something like 3D game racing , than I gues that's modelling in 3D as you may see on photoshop .

If you want to design and code your app. I recommend to start learning how to code right now because it will take time to understand it .

The first month so or week , depends on you , it may be hard but just push your self and you will get better at it.

if you have a design and fairly simple app, you may learn and then practice adding your graphics.

Hope it helped.

Ok i check out but i have to know where can i learn unity 3d online.
