YoYo Games is boasting that its new release of GameMaker: Studio Update 1.2 will run games up to 100x faster than was previously available by harnessing the full speed of a CPU.

The cross platform offering allows developers to create games in a single code base and then publish them to run natively across a number of platforms including Android, iOS, OS X, HTML5, Ubuntu, Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 and Windows RT.

YoYo Compiler is free for customers of GameMaker: Studio Master Collection and is otherwise available as an add-on priced at $299.
