I'm currently trying to create an app by myself, and I'm not entirely sure which platform would be the best to use to make it. The idea for the app resembles something along the lines of the app "Forest", with a simple home screen and 2.5D isometric grid.

I'm currently using Corona SDK, and it looks like it will work fine, but I was wondering if there were any better alternatives for the particulars of the app (I.E it's simplicity and non-game-like nature)

I have some coding experience in Java and Python (using one of those languages would be a plus).

I would much prefer the software to be able to publish to both iOS and Android.

  • Construct 3, for example, seems like a promising alternative because it seems easier to get started with. But again, it is a game maker and I'm not sure if this would be a problem when trying to make an app such as the one described above. – testing123256361 Jul 8 '19 at 16:59
  • I don't know why this was downvoted. I would suggest Nativescript: it's like a combination between Java and JS, and allows you to write one file/peice of code that automatically compiles to IOS, Android, and web as well. You can use CSS to style everything, and "JS" (a slightly modified version called Typescript) to control the 2.5D kind of like in HTML canvas. – Geza Kerecsenyi Jul 8 '19 at 17:30
