iOS Game Development Company

We’ve been crafting games for mobiles since the release of Unity, and iOS game development is now one of our main verticals.

At least half of our 460+ completed projects within the industry are games for iPhone and iPad. Players enjoy them: the games we’ve co-developed for the App Store achieved top review ratings, took Editor’s Choice awards, and got lots of positive comments.

iOS Game Development Services

iLogos creates iPhone games & iPad games — but we also offer many other services related to iOS game development though aren’t focused on it.
Full-Cycle IOS Game Development
UX/UI IOS Game Design
IOS Game Testing
IOS Game Porting
Up-to-Date Geared Tool
Support and Maintenance
Full-Cycle IOS Game Development
We create iOS games from scratch: full-cycle iOS game development starts from getting a concept from you, the client, and working on the game until vertical slice, full-blown release, or a LiveOps stage (which is essentially just continuing doing support and development for new patches and updates). We help companies design a monetization strategy and embed it into the game in a non-disruptive — and even fun for players — way, and we assist with making the game compliant & publishing it on the App Store.
UX/UI IOS Game Design
UX/UI iOS game design is a process of creating user interfaces and user experiences for games on the iOS platform. We do UX/UI work for new titles and offer updates for old games — if they need to be refreshed or adapted to new iOS versions/iPhones/iPads’ resolutions and characteristics. This service includes designing comfortable and intuitive navigation, controls, and other UI elements like heads-up displays, device-related interactions (how the game behaves when the player gets a notification), and more. Most of our mobile games have great retention because they’re easy to pick up & pleasant to play due to UI.
IOS Game Testing
iLogos QA teams test the clients’ iOS games to check their performance, GUI, and adaptability to the screens of different Apple devices. We test the game’s graphics, ergonomics, gameplay, and narrative readability — plus, run all kinds of functional tests through the entire game flow, making sure the game’s animation and audio effects look & sound well. Moreover, we check how the game works in critical circumstances (e.g. with a low battery or poor network connection). To do all that, we use both real Apple devices and emulators. We also do localization and compliance tests according to Apple’s App Store Review Guidelines and Developer License Agreement if your game is not published on the App Store yet.
IOS Game Porting
Most often, clients who want us to port their title to iOS already have an Android game (game studios prefer to publish early access games on Play Store first — it’s more affordable). We also port from consoles (PS4, PS5, Xbox X/One) and PC (for various web games, including Facebook games and desktop games on all major operating systems) to iOS and back. We’re meticulous about porting projects: transferred controls, UI, and graphics must have a native feel but maintain the spirit of the original; our artists, engineers, and testers work hard to make it happen. iLogos’ main tool for game porting is Unity, but we’re up to porting from whatever engine the original game is on.
Up-to-Date Geared Tool
At iLogos, we try to test out every new SDK & technology that’s released into the gamedev market — or in the fields adjacent to it — and we try to build for it. That includes device-agnostic crafting of real-time virtual reality experiences, AR games for mobile, metaverse spaces, and so on. We also are trying out new frameworks, libraries, and other tools released on the market: like launching mobile games with Flutter and utilizing Unreal Engine 5’s amazing graphics capabilities for building iOS titles — and we’re up for trying new tech, trendy or not, with you.
Support and Maintenance
Game studios often come to us to do support & maintenance when they ship the game and need their core team to work on another one. Here, we do bug fixing, performance optimization, compatibility tests (vital with new iOS version releases), etc. We also work with players’ feedback: report on it, analyze it, and use players’ insights to draft offers on how to improve the game. Since we are a post-production service, this one often blends with LiveOps: we keep the game on track, catching errors and making sure everything runs properly — and, when it’s time, we release updates with new characters, rewards, quests, etc. to drive the retention up & attract new players.

Our Technology Experiance In iOS
Game Development

Among the iOS game development software we use, there are XCode and SpireKit, Substance Painter, ZBrush, Adobe Photoshop, Unity, Unreal Engine, Maya and Blender, and more.

Types Of iOS Games We Develop

iOS Match-Three Game Development
Of all games in the casual mobile genre, match-three puzzles take up the top. Players connect three items of the same color/size/pattern/etc — they score and get rewarded. Within the genre, we’ve worked on Candy Crush Jelly Saga (LiveOps for King) and Pirates and Pearls (Game Art for G5).
iOS Action-Adventure Game Development
In this genre, there’s an avatar character, various quests, and an overarching plot players try to untangle by moving through levels, solving puzzles, fighting monsters, etc. An example from our portfolio here is, for instance, Zombie Gunship Survival we’ve ported from mobile to Windows for Flaregames.
iOS Fighting Game Development
In fighting games, players fight: with a computer or with each other, using different fighting styles, weapons, techniques. One of our coolest projects within this genre is Shadow Fight Arena we’ve co-developed for iOS and Android with Nekki.
iOS Simulation Game Development
The term "simulation game" can refer to various games, from construction and management to military or life simulations. Our favorite simulation game projects are The Simpsons case (art production for EA) and Megapolis (co-developed with Social Quantum).
iOS Arcade Puzzle Game Development
In arcade puzzles, moving through the game happens via solving puzzles, mysteries & riddles. We love our detective game June’s Journey: we took care of art production for this one for Wooga; the game’s plot revolves around players finding hidden clues.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is IOS Game Development?

IOS game development is developing video games for the iOS platform — for iPads and iPhones. 

 

There are fewer games for iOS than for Android: Android game development is a bit cheaper. There’s a one-time fee of $25 you’re asked to pay before publishing — as opposed to the $99/year fee Apple asks of publishers; there’s also a less rigorous review process. 

 

Because Apple introduced a more explicit opt-in for user data sharing in 2021, most mobile game advertisers (70%) are also on Android. That’s why game companies prefer to roll out early access/MVP versions of their games on Android first (especially if they monetize via ads) — but they do release them in the App Store after testing the waters within the Play Store. 

 

Apple’s rigorousness about user privacy pays off, quite literally, in games’ revenue: iOS players cover about 58% of the total revenue companies and individuals receive by publishing gaming apps

Game development & post-production for iOS is also often much easier: because Apple is a vendor of both hardware and OS, we can anticipate OS/device updates and prepare for them — within our games’ UI & UX, promotion opportunities, and so on. Android systems are very siloed, and Android devices are many

Why Outsource IOS Game Development?

Outsourcing iOS game development is a popular option for many companies. It can save time

and money and help you tap into a larger talent pool. It can help redirect your main team’s efforts towards other projects — new ones or those demanding your immediate attention. That’s the reason lots of studios choose outsourcing after releasing their game in early access on the Play Store. People also outsource if they want to create games in collaboration with more experienced players in the industry, if they lack specific talent and have no resources to look for it, and if they want a fresh perspective on the gamedev they’ve been doing.

What Are the Stages of IOS Game Development?

There are three main stages of iOS game development (and any development, really): pre-production, production, and post-production. 

Pre-production is all about planning what your game will be about, what the main mechanics, story, and visual style will be, etc. At this stage, it’s also best to understand how you’ll be monetizing your game and study Apple’s guidelines and terms related to implementing subscriptions or in-app purchases. The pre-production stage ends with crafting a visual style guide, GDD, and other documents that outline what’s going to happen in the game — in as much detail as possible. 

Production is a multi-layered development process: designers work to make your world and characters visible, authentic, and lived-in. Developers make the world interactable, moving around the players — start-up all the gears. QA specialists catch bugs and errors after tests and run tests again. Then, the game is released. 

Post-production is what happens after: the implementation of fixes & improvements based on players’ insights, data analytics, LiveOps services, support & maintenance. 

Somewhere in the middle of the development process, marketing departments & artists start building campaigns for the game’s promotion — so that they would be ready for early access/full-blown launch.

How Long Does It Take to Create an IOS Game With ILogos?

IOS game developers, as we’ve mentioned, usually have less to worry about various screen sizes/OS versions, so it takes a little bit less time to build for this system than for Android. 

The time it takes to create iOS game with iLogos varies depending on the size and complexity of the project. We can build a simple game in as little as 2-3 months, while a more complex game can take up to six months or more.
