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.

Version 0.2.0 comes in HOT! With a bunch of great new features, one of which is the Comets Event! Right now the comet event has a fairly big chance of happening in a game, this will be more balanced over time as there will be more events added, and I'm still finding the right balance between having events and no-events at all.

I've also added a dialog-system to the game, which comes with a bunch of tutorial like instructions and information text left and right.

And the game now has a continue/save game feature! It auto-saves between levels, but when you die, the save-game will be deleted (permadeath!) I might make it an option later on to toggle perma-death on and off, but for now you at least get to take a break on longer runs!

Besides those main things there's a bunch of other stuff added, fixed and tweaked, so for the full list check below. This also marks the first price-increase for Early Access.

Here's the weekly vlog going a bit more into the creation of these new features:

Full changes list:

  • added: dialogs + tutorial instructions/explaining things that happen, with avatar (doc)
  • added: first "Event" - Comets - has comets randomly dropping around the planet region
  • added: a map screen
  • added: continue/save game
  • added: bigger hero avatars (used in hero-card and dialogs)
  • added: changed XP-bar rendering (replaced text with visual bar)
  • added: skill-levels to the players status-bar
  • added: safe teleportation spots (require a "beam me up" card)
  • added: new card: Teleporter

Fixes and tweaks:

  • fixed: quick-teleport won't teleport if danger is gone (opponent died)
  • fixed: some light/visible-area issues after doing a quick-teleport
  • fixed: speed improvement on FOV calculations
  • fixed: radar rendered slightly lower (not to overlap with card-deck counter)
  • fixed: metal crate debris looks like acid
  • fixed: improved burning-floor effects
  • fixed: Cybergon now uneffected by it's own bombs
  • fixed: door near bomb was still visible but not solid
  • fixed: player-avatar in dialogs is the wrong one
  • fixed: FIST disappeared at reshaper
  • fixed: improvements to card-selection with mouse
  • tweak: Martian was too strong for early levels, now shows up later in the game
  • tweak: item-drop rate now includes specific-skills of player
  • tweak: HP given by transporting to next level now depends on class (tech get's more, grimm get's less)

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.
