I’m currently programming a sidescroller in Lua language and I’m using Corona sdk.
My goal is to create an action sidescroller similar to Megaman or Metroid (by Nintendo). I grew up with those games and I think they’re great, even nowdays.
I was thinking to switching to Cocos2D-x, because it seems that Corona sdk was meant for arcade style games, more than 2D sidescrollers.
Also there are very few tutorials for 2D sidescrollers for Corona, almost none.
There are tutorials for stuff like Angry Birds and Doodle Jump, but I’m not going for any of such games, cause Google Play and AppStore are already flooded with them anyways…
So I’d like to know- Is Cocos2D-x good for programming 2D sidescrollers?
I’ve been using Lua a lot. I’ve heard that Cocos2D-x supports Lua as well, but it’s not completely the same as in Corona..
Will it be tough for me to switch?
Thanks in advance!
