Hi I'm planning to do a 2D game and I was wondering if there is a relly good library that gives the best price/benefice ratio. I know there are free libraries (SDL in mind) and there are relly expensive ones (renderware or so..) that I can't afford. I'm plannig to do a commercial platform game, so please give me some advice because I don't know much about this... PD: I was thinking in HGE engine but it lacks collision and seems that its autor doesn't have much time to update his library (just my opinion searching his forum). Another would be SDL but it requieres a lot of work (doing my own sprite editor or so).

SDL. Simply put, its free, easy to use, cross-platform... Has extesnion to music, input, and mostly anything you'd want in a 2d game. I made a collsion function for it which works with the sides, but not the heights.
