    What device would you test your game?
    I can help you to test your game on iOS device,
    in Buildbox go to File - Export - iOS
    save your file, and (if you have Xcode) open PTPlayer.xcodeproj File
    Before you run your game on your device you need to
    Select PTPlayer in navigation area (upper left corner)
    go to Build Settings and "Enable Bitcode" set to NO
    run your project on iPhone or iPad

    You need to have a Mac

    That's correct, you cannot develop software for iOS without a Mac. However, you can use your friends Mac, or there are hosted Macs you can "rent" like macincloud.com

    @Hakanz Yes it is safe and it is pretty much having a MAC OS just on your Windows/Linux pc. Using your web browser or a remote desktop program (given by them) you will connect to the Apple manufactured Mac server. After logging in, you can remotely view and control the Mac as if you are sitting in front of the Mac screen.

    Good questions - It looks legit to me, however, I have no experience with it as I have a Mac. As per doing "everything" with it: Well, as long as your remote access software emulates USB connection, yes (again, I have not tried this, have no idea if it does or not). But if not, it is a bit tricky to build and upload the compiled app to your phone, and probably there is no way to debug or analyze memory usage or CPU utilization etc.

    Hey man you can get VMware or virtualbox to run MacOS on Windows the Mac OS is free and I think xcode is free for developers. Just do good research before anything but this is the best way as do not require Internet or connections to any server. Its %100 safe
