What programming language do people use to make app games?

 

Can they be done without java/c++ or would they still need to use those.

Java - Android

Objective C - ios

You can make games using HTML5/java script though

C++ is the most commonly used language for games I believe, or has been in the past (not mobile, but in general)

 

if you wanna use C++ for a mobile app just find a C++ framework like Corona or something along them lines

C++ is quite basic now, Xbox games are coded in C# which is a more advanced version of C++ allowing A.I engines to be used.

 

Most languages derive from C as there all object based programming.

Need to look into all this.

 

This is worth a look. Bought a license for it about a year ago when it was in it's early release. Not done too much with it but it's got the potential.

Safe got the trial.

Where are you getting your information from?

 

 

C++ isn't basic. C# isn't a more advanced version of C++. C isn't an object oriented programming language.

AI engines can be used in any language depending on what they've been programmed in.

 

Even Xbox is mainly C++ but they've developed the XNA toolkit that uses C# for developing on various Microsoft platforms so you can use C# to develop stuff, but the big studios will still use C++.

If you're interested in what's actually possible on it take a look at the Arcade section on the website, it's got user created games.

 

This on stands out in particular.

Studied it in Uni, Created graphics on C, animation on C++ and two games on C#. Out of the 3 C# is the most enjoyable to program in. The amount of coding required in C++ to do someone can be achieved on C# with less coding.
