The iOS game development has 3 important stages that include ideation, development, and maintenance. Let's explain each of them better below:
1. Brainstorming ideas. It's the start of the iOS development process in which the key game concepts and mechanics are discussed by a team of developers, designers, and artists. The game content and its production is also negotiated during this phase because it defines what character's actions, movements, object transitions can be used in the product.
2. Game development. It's the production in which iOS developers craft a mobile game. They choose the platform on which they begin the game development process like LiveCode, GameMaker, Stencyl, etc. Besides, iOS mobile developers use such tools as Unity Mobile, iTorque, Sparrow, Newton, DragonFire, Oolong, NinevehGl, and others.
3. App support. It's also known as game maintenance, and its main aim is to improve the game experience for players. Developers provide updates on monetization strategy and what functionalities are needed. The app support is beneficial when you plan to change the game features, characters, objects, mechanics, transitions, etc. and outperform your rivals.
