Monstercraft Postmortem Part 3: Win32 and iOS

November 30, 2010 Leave a comment

The port to C++ for Win32 and then iOS took about 60 hours.  As with Zombie Outhouse, I used Instant C++ to port the C# to C++ which took about a minute.  The rest was all manual labor.  Monstercraft runs on the same bioroid enhanced version of the bork3d engine that was used for Zombie Outhouse so it uses a custom C++ XNA style layer to ease the process.

Zombie Outhouse Development Part 6: To the iPad and beyond!

When it came time to port Zombie Outhouse to the iPhone, I looked at numerous options to help ease the process.  After the dust settled, I decided on the Bork3D Engine.  Some of the reasons were:

  • It’s C++!!!!
  • Low price ($49 for an indie license)
  • Full Source Code
  • Lightweight and clean
