Brain Party – a puzzle-solving, brain-stretching game that comes with 36 mini games designed to push your brain to its limits, testing memory, logic, mathematics, reactions and more.
This game was written for Apple’s iPhone, and you can buy it in the App Store for $0.99 – in fact, doing so helps support me a little.
Brain Party was originally written for Linux in C#, using Mono and SDL.NET. It was then ported to Windows Mobile 5.0, which also uses C#, but has only the .NET Compact Framework. From there, it was ported to the Xbox 360 (and that port is still available through the Microsoft Indie Games store), which also uses C# and the .NET Compact Framework, plus the XNA Framework.
From there, the game was ported to the iPhone, which meant rewriting it in Objective C++ and OpenGL. Some of the code was taken from the X360 version as it had been polished; other code was taken from the WinMo code, because it was already built for touchscreens.
The Brain Party you have now descends from the iPhone build. All the code that was Objective C++ is now plain C++.
