I'm working on Kobold2D (, an improved version of Cocos2D featuring a lot more sample code, much better documentation and a serious effort to improve cross-platform (iOS & Mac OS) support.

I also want to provide a much more streamlined experience for beginning developers, starting with an installer, tools to create new projects from the 15+ template projects and upgrading projects to newer versions of Kobold2D is also just a mouse-click. API improvements are made to make programming games easier, for example KKInput significantly simplifies how you work with user input states (keyboard, mouse, accelerometer, gyroscope, touches and gestures).

Kobold2D is MIT Licensed, free and open source.

Hey, I recognize you from the cocos2d forums (before you and riq fought). Hello and welcome to iDevGames.

Check out Orx is an opensource game engine with support for pretty much every platform out there. I used it in an iPhone/iPad game in it works great.

The Oolong game engine is a 3D engine written in C++, and gives brilliant performance.

GLBasic if you want to flex those basic musicles.

Unfortunately, I think the development environment is Windows-only, but it does create iOS apps.

x2d is my new wip engine:
it's pretty similar to orx but written in modern c++ with stl and boost.

Feel free to add links to ones not listed and I will add above. If someone wants to write a quick snippet of each for Pro and Con, I will also add that to this post.

Thank you for share this list.

Gamesalad seems to be the best for me since programming isn't my best skill for developing games
