Those are some very impressive stats! What types of games does your studio develop?
Our recently released game, Pig Me Up, is a challenging puzzle game. Players must use their intelligence, reaction time and technique in order to complete the stages. With the cute graphics and lively music, the app provides fun and addicting gameplay.
Do you use any other tools for game development?
Please tell us about your experience using Corona SDK and the games you’ve created with the platform.
Brain Lab II is our first paid game and it’s been the most popular game in countries such as China, Germany, Italy, France, Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore. It’s a fun puzzle game that tests your smarts.
Corona is easy to learn and use. Our developers needed only a few days to adapt to the technology. Lua is a good programming language because it is much easier than Objective C, C# and JAVA. Lastly, the Corona forums provides us a useful community for developers to exchange library and resources for support.
