I'm not new gamedev, that's actually how I started out in programming (I have very fond memories of DOS/4GW and VGA). It's just this whole "iOS/Android" stuff that I'm new to.
And ATM, I'm specifically looking at 2D. I'm sure you can do 2D in a 3D engine like Unity, but ATM I'm looking more in the direction of, like I said, Corona and Marmalade - stuff that's specifically designed for 2D.
