game engine recommendation

Hi Guys,
I would like to develop mobile games. I am thinking of games simple enough to be done by one or two programmers like match 3 genre or some thing similar (on the complexity level). Would prefer to target both iOS and android.

Experts please recommend a game engine based on your experience.

Thanks. I will take a look at it.  What kind of game did you develop with Unity? Did you try any others like phonegap before you picked this?

I am no developer, so you would have do ask a developer here. We do not develop games with Unity; mainly use it for supporting applications for our public display branch (Tablet apps for exhibitions for instance). The reason is the fast dev cycle and the quite good preview run. I only do some compiling with it and also did some (very easy) ports.

Also, with the Asset Server they have a good SCCS in place; but you need a license to use this feature.

But take a look at the Unity page, quite many well known games were developed with Unity. Also, I would guess more than half of the Indy Games available on Steam are done with Unity:
