Fastest way to build a 2D game

Posted 14 February 2017 - 05:34 AM

Hello everyone

I have this game idea. I cannot properly articulate it in words here.
It's a
a) 2 player game
B) simple graphics will do

What would be the fastest method to build this game for Android platform(without using Android, am ready to learn something new if it will help me build the game faster)

Thanks in advance

Hi rnty,

There are a number of tools that you can make a 2D game:
Construct 2
Unity
Gamemaker: Studio

Are 3 good examples, there are tons more engines that will do the Job

Good luck

Can I target Android with all these platforms?
Are all the above mentioned free?

Unity is the only one that is free to release to Android
There are some restrictions with the free version of Unity mainly:
An annual revenue capacity or funds raised capacity of $100k per fiscal year exists for Personal (Free) customers.
A Unity Splash-screen before your App.

Neither a real problem (if you are raising more than 100k you should really be able to afford a better licence) but the splash-screen makes your game seem a little home projecty.
