libGDX is a Java game development framework that provides a unified API that works across all supported platforms.

The framework provides an environment for rapid prototyping and fast iterations. Instead of deploying to Android/iOS/Javascript after each code change, you can run and debug your game on the desktop, natively. Desktop JVM features like code hotswapping reduce your iteration times considerably.

Libgdx tries not be the "end all, be all" solution. It does not force a specific design on you.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Glyphs: Apprentice is on sale for one week at Steam from Monday September 18th until September 24th. Check it out at: Store.steampowered.com.

Glyphs: Apprentice is a deeply engrossing problem-solving game, using simple programming to animate game objects. This is one of the most ambitious puzzle games you will ever play with over 70 levels, each with a near infinite number of solutions.

It inspires new ways of thinking by combining programming with spatial visualization. You will need to use your intelligence, creativity and imagination. Your solutions will range from elegant creations to laughable Rube Goldberg monstrosities. Watch with fascination as your creations come to life in this spell-binding game.

Glyphs: Apprentice was inspired by Zach Barth’s Codex of Alchemical Engineering and SpaceChem, and fans of these games will enjoy the next evolution in this genre.

I just created a game called Chomp! using LibGdx. I found it a great library and I liked that it was a programmers platform since I am a Java programmer.

My game is now on the Google Play Store. It is about a crocodile that catches food. You control the crocodile with the accelerator.

Wally the Crocodile catches food from all directions and angles.

Three ways to play.

Why the developer is TOME studios and the license is Commercial?
It's being developed by the libgdx guys and the license should be Apache2.
