Benefits
* Business logic is encapsulated in C#/.NET core classes which are shared across multiple platforms.
* UIs are built using Noesis XAML for clean and easy to maintain user interfaces.
* XAML styles are used extensively to match the company's branding.
* Custom Noesis user control to simplify streaming of building images for on-demand infinite scroll.

Performance
* Noesis user interfaces defined in XAML load significantly faster than Microsoft's implementation of WPF.

Challenges
* Unity WebGL presents unique problems specific to Unity.
* Other than one behavior (Linear vs Gamma Rendering) which was resolved quickly, using Noesis presented no obstacles.

Features Used
* Animation (Opacity, Tweening, Transitions)
* Drop Shadow Effects (Noesis 3.x)
* Embedded RenderTextures
* Dynamic UI built from web services
* Gamepad and touch integration

Thanks
I would be remiss if I did not mention Jesus and Sergio. Noesis is an outstanding product! It is highly reliable and it accomplishes something Microsoft has been striving for throughout the better part of a decade. I am confident that by using Noesis I can deliver high quality cross-platform solutions for demanding clients. I'd like to extend my gratitude to Noesis and the entire team! Thank you!
