I was just wondering if somebody could suggest a 2D engine that provides multi-platfrom support (and would therefore probalby support OpenGL). I've looked around the web and can only find 3D.

Define 'engine'. It can mean many things (quite a few that are looking for an 'engine' are actually looking for an API). I'll just take the liberty to recommend SDL.
You can find it at > www.libsdl.org

I use BlitzMax . The devs shoot themselves in the foot by having an outdated demo but it gives a flavour of how it works.
Not sure what specifically you're looking for but it's x-platform (OGL and DX7 drivers) , quick enough for 2D easy to use, and can be used procedurally or with OOP techniques. Development is a bit slow but support via the forum community and 3rd party add-ons is pretty good.
<edit> P.S. It is more a programming language than a 2D engine for another language.

You can use Irrlicht it's a 3D engine but you can do 2D with it and it will just look a lot more awsome

Thomo, you did not specify what programming language your working with, so its pretty hard to tell you what direction to go in.

If your using c/c++ the best and most obvious choice would of course be sdl.
