    I played a game called The Uber Game by the Financial Times and I would like to make a similar game. The game is customised for desktop, tablet and mobile. However, I don't know what software I can use to make the game? Can this be done in Unity?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but as far as I can see that game is just static images with text and buttons overlaid. As such, Unity would be massive overkill. You could build it quite simply in basic HTML, CSS and JS.

    As above, basically. There isn't even any animation in the illustrations.

    I personally haven't, I only know about it as one of the company owners is an old mate of mine. I only suggested it as it seemed to fit the OP's requirements.

    Most Web apps were done in flash or silverlight, both are being fazed out in favour of HTML5 which works alongside js and css.

    Google for a 'download whole webpage' plugin and you will be able to download all the js and css for that site.

    Go old school and use Hypercard.
