Game engines are vital for developing 3D applications and games today. This is because the engines significantly reduce resources---time and manpower---to implement mandatory but complex functionalities. However, with over 100 engines available with highly different ranges of features, performance, license, and cost, selecting an appropriate game engine for a specific objective becomes a challenging problem. This thesis aims to mitigate this problem by developing a comparison matrix for selecting a game engine. We define criteria for selecting engines and critical aspects of mobile 3D game development to be included in the matrix. Then, we evaluate this matrix by a case study that is, from given requirements, selecting an engine by using the matrix. Evaluation of the comparison matrix is carried out through case study, that advocate the correctness, and robustness of the comparison matrix.
