I am debating on doing my final project for computer science over the creation of a game for the iphone. Firstly, is this even a good idea or do you think it would take me more than 4 months? I also need to be able to give a 30 minute presentation on the project. I assume all this just depends on the type of game.
I had watched a video of a boy who had created the most popular IPhone game to date, and he had said he used Corona SDK for his physics. Is this a good choice and what are some other popular alternatives?
Now I read in another thread that its better off to get a cheap Mac Mini then to try to do it on Windows with Hackintosh. Is that still the case? I had just bought a PC last summer so can't really afford a Mac right now unless I have to. If I did get a Mac mini would it be powerful enough to do what I needed it to? Seems the cheapest ones go for about $300 without a monitor. Im assuming I can use my current VGA PC monitor with it?
Edit: I think the Hackintosh thing is out of question now..I simply don't think I have time to fight with it. And $300 isnt that bad if it will do everything I will need it to. Can still use the suggestions and help though. Also if anyone has any good sdks I could just use to help make a game in windows, I might would just give it a try and work on an iphone game later. Would need to be something I could learn and create a decent game in within 4 months. I may just end up making a game with SDL or openGL..haven't decided yet..would much rather make an iphone game..so who knows.
