Hey everyone. I am kinda new here, i am a pixel artist and have some knowledge on C++. I wanted to create a simple 2D Side Scroller like Sonic or Super Mario. Is there any free Engine to create 2D Side Scrollers? My C++ is pretty basic, doesn't get too much arround, i know voids and stuff like that, i do mathematic and programming exercises at school, but i am not prepared to create my own engine yet. Thanks in advance.

Maybe a GUI system is something you need. One example is ceGUI:

I am working on a free & cross platform 2d scroller engine/framework. You can check it out at http://jenginesse.sourceforge.net/

I want to make clear that it is work in progress.

Also consider HGE:

I've only just started looking at it but it seems quite simple to get started. I don't think it has as many GUI elements as CEGUI, but it may be possible to use the two together, I haven't tried yet.

I'd look into Flash or GameMaker if I were you. Or Python and Pygame or Pyglet. Games don't necessarily need to be made with C++ after all... ;)
