Instant testing:

While developing your game, it can be tested on a real device through Wifi in only 1 second - you don’t waste your time with an export or deploy process.

Native speed:

Developed on top of C/C++ and OpenGL, your game runs at native speed and fully utilizes the power of CPUs and GPUs underneath.


You can easily extend the core with plugins. Import your existing (C, C++, Java or Obj-C) code, bind to Lua and interpret them directly. Dozens of open-source plugins are already developed and ready to use.

Clean OOP approach:

Gideros provides its own class system with all the basic OOP standards, enabling you to write clean and reusable code for any of your future games.

Full dev set:

Fast development:

Easy learning curve, instant testing, OOP coding practices and ability to create needed custom plugins reduces the development time. And because of reusable code, each your next app will be developed even faster.
