We also do the hard work – testing against hundreds of devices, and understanding the nuances of each – so that you can focus on improving your gameplay, not on mobile fragmentation.

Build on industry standards

The Corona platform is built on industry standards including
OpenGL, OpenAL, Box2D, Facebook, SQLite and much more.

Our new state-of-the-art graphics engine, based on OpenGL 2.0
and shaders, enables cinematic effects with just a few lines of code.
