Why use Gideros?
As of 2019, Gideros just out of the box has pretty much everything that can be needed for creating even top tier mobile games:
- GLSL Shaders
- Physics (LiquidFun)
- Blend modes
- Skeletal animations (Spine/Dragonbones)
- Sockets & real-time multiplayer (PhotonCloud/Noobhub)
- plenty of other plugins built-in
Besides that, few more advantages can be mentioned:
Instant on-device testing
For example classic 'getDistance' function performs 5x faster with Gideros' mutation operators then with vanilla Lua code.
Facebook Instant Games support
Unique async calls system
Besides regular enterframe callbacks, we can write a program "sequentially", like we would have written for the Commodore 64 or DOS PC, ie assuming our program has complete control of the computer.
Full assets encryption
You don't have to expose your code and assets to any server and don't depend on internet connection.
