I'm thinking of making an iPhone game (maybe), and was considering MonoTouch
and Unity.
Both are expensive (same price: $400), but I guess Apple users enjoy paying.

After having looked around, this is what I concluded:

- .NET 2.0 and 3.5 features (which, I take it, includes generics)

- No more MonoTouch updates after one year


- Specialized in game making, so good for me

- .NET 1.1 (no generics)
- Startup "Made with Unity" splash screen (unless you get the $1500 version
rather than the $400 one)

Am I overlooking anything? Has anyone tried either and can share their
Is MonoTouch actually a good choice to make a game (something rather simple,
2D)? I take it it can do everything plain Objective C can do? No idea what
the graphics API is like, for example, but I assume it's iPhone specific...
