I am new to app development. I have experience with web development with languages such as PHP, jQuery, HTML etc. I want to take a turn at development for mobile devices.
I have a concept for a game that is a turn-based local multiplayer game. Essentially, the user would open the app, select the amount of players, choose their player avatar, edit the player name etc. and start the game. Once the game is started, each player will have their own turn in a cyclical nature (and pass the mobile device along). Obviously, the game would keep track of certain player stats as the game progresses. The graphics in the game are going to be simple and cartoons (2D).
Im curious if there is an app engine that will cater to a newbie like me as well as the game style. I have done some research on Stencyl but im not sure that this type of game will work well with that platform.
