The best 2D engine

Recommended Posts

What is the best engine to do a 2D Game??? The game is like Hearts of Iron, but simplest. The mouse input function should be extensive. Thanks! PS: Sorry for my english, I'm spanish.

I feel the best route for 2D games would be to make your own engine. I say this mainly because there are not very many 2D engines still around seeing as everything is 3D now of days. If I were to make a 2D engine though id go with something like SDL.

I know irrlicht supports 2D and its fairly new but I have not yet used it for this purpose. The engine itself is however free and open source so its a good start, maybe look at its examples.

If being cross platform isn't a concern, HGE is an excellent 2d game SDK

A lot of people like Kyra sprite engine. It's only graphics and pixel collision detection, but you can find / write the other components easily.

It's LGPL if you include a Kyra splash screen when you start the game, GPL otherwise.
