Open Source Android Apps for Developers: Open Source Android (2D or 3D) Game Engine for Android Developers Plus
We have talked about “Ten open source Android (2D or 3D) Game Engines for Android Developers“, but some readers point out that we missed some important Android game engines such as jMonkeyEngine, Cocos2d-android and etc. So here is the Plus for these missed Android (2D or 3D) game engines.
11. jMonkeyEngine: jMonkey Engine (jME) is a leading Java Based 3D Game Engine
jMonkey Engine (jME) is a high-performance 3D game engine, written entirely in Java. OpenGL is supported via LWJGL, with JOGL support in development. For sound, OpenAL is supported. Input via the keyboard, mouse, and other controllers is also supported.
jME is a community-driven open source project released under the ‘new BSD license’. It is currently being used by several commercial game studios as well as by university game classes. While the project will continue to support and develop its most popular 2.0 branch for years still to come, a 3.0 branch is quickly emerging in response to higher standards of the next generation in performance and hardware.
Now, Android platform has been surpported by jME3: Android Support Confirmed for jME3. So jMonkeyEngine may be one of the most important Android game engines.
12. Cocos2d-android: A framework for building 2D games for the Android platform.
Cocos2d for Android is an open source Android game related project which is a framework for building 2D games, demos and other graphical/interactive applications. It is based on the cocos2d-iphone design: it uses the same API, but instead of using objective-c, it uses Java. And Cocos2d for iPhone is a framework for building 2D games, demos, and other graphical/interactive applications. It is based on the cocos2d design: it uses the same API, but instead of using python it uses objective-c.
