Since iOS was the main mobile platform from the beginning, it still has a lot more games than Android,and part of the reason was that it wasn’t so easy to port iOS games to Android, either because developers would have to convert to Java code, or because the Native Development Kit wasn’t mature enough.
To take advantage of porting iOS games to Android through Unity, the games must be originally made with Unity, but luckily there are over 1000 games made with it already, so that should potentially bring many games to Android soon enough. Here’s the full list of features:
- Integrated Editor — Users can deploy a single project to multiple platforms, including Android, using a one-click solution that just works. Porting a game from iOS to Android can be as simple as changing the target platform and clicking “Build.”
- Support for upcoming Android devices, including Tegra Tablets and the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY Smartphone — Users can be among the first to benefit from releasing games on the exciting range of Android-based gaming platforms.
- Highly Optimized Graphics Pipeline for OpenGL ES 2.0 — Unity Technologies has been working directly with hardware manufacturers such as NVIDIA and Qualcomm to get every last bit of performance out of Android so that users can create stunning games without worrying about the subtle difference between devices.
- Android Remote — Developers can use their actual Android phone as an input device to view and test their game directly within the authoring tool.
