iPhone game development engines roundup article

I am teaching iPhone game development this term at Bournemouth University and have just come across a great (though sadly all too short) article at Develop Magazine's online site which lists the most popular game development middleware engines for Apple's device.
These include Shiva, Unity, Torque 2D and Borque 3D. A list of features, prices plus pros and cons is covered for all of them and it makes for a very interesting read, particularly when considering that key to minimising risk in game production is spending as little time and money as possible (and middleware is a crucial part of this). For what it's worth, I am using Unity for my teaching at the University but the other three seem well worth checking out!
