Unity most popular engine for iPhone game creation

13th August 2009. San Francisco, USA. Unity Technologies - unity3d.com - the provider of the revolutionary Unity development platform which enables console-quality games for the Web, iPhone and the Nintendo® Wii - today reveals its engine is the most popular with 258 Unity-made games currently available.

From games created by students to professional outfits Unity has been used to create a wide variety of visually stunning, innovative and engaging games - from the quirky to the more traditional - the flexibility and feature set of the engine allows developers to concentrate on content rather than technology.

Nicholas Francis, Chief Creative Officer and co-founder of Unity said, "There's so many iPhone games made with Unity that its hard to keep track; we've got 258 confirmed releases, but the actual number could be much higher. This spans small titles to smash hits like Zombieville USA and Touch KO. Even if its 'only' 258, that still means that there has been a Unity iPhone game released every two days since we launched - a great success."

Unity will release 1.1 for iPhone towards the end of August 2009.

The Unity tools have been hailed as revolutionary for enabling high quality results in an easily accessible development environment. Unity is the fastest growing cross platform engine. More information at: unity3d.com
