mobile game

Post icon  Posted 14 February 2009 - 11:39 AM

Hello to everyone!

If i were to develop a mobile game what programming language would be best that i use. And any suggestion on the type of mobile game? I have little idea (or perhaps none) in developing a mobile game but i would like to try and learn how it's done.



Thanks. :)

Moved to the new Mobile Development Forum :)

EDIT: I do know a lot of mobile games are written with Java if that helps at all :)

Normal phones use JavaME for developing their apps/games. Check it out here: http://java.sun.com/javame/index.jsp and here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Java_ME

Also it depends on what platform you want to develop for... If it's something like the Android then it uses straight java, where as the iphone uses objective - C so you can use general C++ or C libraries to create games. So it really depends on what platform.
