New tools for 2D games

This year, Apple added a new 2D game framework to Mac OS and iOS, which will hopefully allow smaller developers in particular to create more visually impressive 2D games over the coming months for Apple devices.

Another welcome addition to the 2D gaming scene will be the latest version of the Unity game development kit. Normally a 3D game engine, the latest version (Unity 4.3) now includes a 2D toolset. If it takes off, this should lead to some interesting cross-platform 2D creations from smaller developers.
