Age of Defenders is a tower defense game built with Flash (for web versions) and AIR (for tablet and mobile versions). The game is available in both the App Store and the Android Market, as well as in browsers, and will soon be available on the Blackberry Playbook.
Adobe gaming evangelist Tom Krcha interviews head of development Tomáš Botek about the development process and technology challenges. Highlights:
Me: How long have you been working on the original browser game and how big is the team?
Tomáš: We have started with a web version, which took us approximately 1 year. We are a team of 4 programmers and 3 designers. We have spent a lot of time thinking about the concept of the game.
Me: How long did it take to port it from iOS to Android with AIR?
Tomáš: When we had the first tablet version ready (iOS version), all we had to do for the other platforms was to work with the resolutions. The transition from the iOS to Android was very quick, took almost no time.
