|Richard Harris in Programming Wednesday, February 4, 2015|
Chukong Technologies has released the latest version (3.4) of its Cocos2d-x video game development platform which helps developers build 2.5D and 3D casual and mid-core mobile games.. Version 3.4 includes upgraded features and tools supporting 3D game development and faster memory management and optimization for Samsung devices.
Cocos2d-x is an open source game framework written in C++, with a thin platform dependent layer. It can be used to build games, apps and other cross platform GUI based interactive programs.
The framework is free and provides cross-platform support that allows developers to publish games on multiple platforms from a single code base. A demonstration of the new 3D tools can be seen in a Fantasy Warrior demo video on Youtube. More about Cocos2d-x is available on the company’s website.
