How to Make a Game on an iPhone or iPad

Do you want to make a full game directly from your iOS device? Now you can! Here's how to make a game on an iPhone or iPad.

Apple mobile devices are amazing. You can do almost anything on an iPhone or iPad, from full-length feature films, to complete songs, and more. But there was something lacking before: the ability to make standalone games directly from your device. However, GDevelop's new iOS app lets you do just that. Here's how to make a game on an iPhone or iPad.

Step 1: Download the GDevelop App

The first step couldn't be easier: just download the GDevelop app! The official app is available on the App Store.

GDevelop is a free and open-source no-code game making app that YouTubers like Mike from GamesFromScratch are calling "the best way to make games on the go".

Simply head on to this page on the App Store, download and install the GDevelop app.

The app is also available for Android. Read more about it here.

Step 2: Create an Account

Creating a GDevelop account is easy and free. A GDevelop account gives you access to a whole host of features on various devices. You can even create games with unlimited events on desktop, just with the free account!

Sign up for a GDevelop account

If you already have a GDevelop account, simply sign in. And that's it! The free version of the GDevelop iOS App will let you create a single event sheet with up to 20 events, to try out the features of the app and see if GDevelop is for you. You can also open any existing project on your account, regardless of the number of events, and even modify existing events. You just can't add events beyond the 20 event limit.

Step 3 - Get a GDevelop Premium Account

If you like what you see and you want more features, all you have to do is purchase any of the GDevelop Premium subscriptions. Even the most affordable Silver tier will unlock all of the features of the app.

Step 4 - Make Games!

And that's it! With your new GDevelop Premium account, you can make games as complex or simple as you'd like, right on your phone.

What's more: you don't even need to start from scratch: GDevelop has a built-in asset store that makes creating games easy and fun. No need to find assets. It's all at your fingertips.

Making games in GDevelop is easy!

And when you're done, you can export your game's APK, EXE or HTML file, directly from your mobile device. That's right! You don't even need to leave your phone to create a build. You can publish your games on Steam, itch, Poki and more.

You can make games for the Steam Deck, too! What are you waiting for? Download the GDevelop app and start making games on your iPhone or iPad today!
