Looks impressive... I'm interested in how it was developed to work on both the iPhone and Windows...?

The engine & the game is fully homegrown, written in C++ with portability in mind.
For the graphics, basic OpenGL is 99% the same on the two platforms. After I made the iPad version, the code was already prepared for different screen sizes. Adapting to other input was also not much work. The only major bump was switching sound API from openAL to DirectSound - and then again they are conceptually very similar...

Best regards,

Very neat. I ask because I've done a bit of Windows development, but that's not exactly marketable so I was looking around at development for Android and a couple other portable devices. Knew I'd have to really get cracking at OpenGL sometime...
