cocos2d-x is a multi-platform framework for building 2d games, interactive books, demos and other graphical applications. It is based on cocos2d-iphone, but instead of using Objective-C, it uses C++. It works on iOS, Android, Windows Phone, OS X, Windows and Linux.
- Easy to use
- Community Supported
- Download the code from cocos2d download site
- Run the
$ cd cocos2d-x $ ./setup.py $ source FILE_TO_SAVE_SYSTEM_VARIABLE $ cocos new MyGame -p com.your_company.mygame -l cpp -d /home $ cd /home/MyGame
$ cocos run -p -j 4 android
$ cocos run -p ios
$ cocos run -p mac
if you never run cocos2d-x on linux, you need to install all dependences by the script in cocos2d/build/install-deps-linux.sh
$ cd cocos2d-x/build $ ./install-deps-linux.sh
$ cd /home/MyGame $ cocos run -p linux
$ cocos run -p win32

- Mac OS X 10.7+, Xcode 4.6+
- or Ubuntu 12.10+, CMake 2.6+
- or Windows 7+, VS 2012+
- Python 2.7.5
- iOS 5.0+ for iPhone / iPad games
- Android 2.3+ for Android games
- Windows Phone 8+ for Windows Phone games
- OS X v10.6+ for Mac games
- Windows 7+ for Win games
Select the test you want from Xcode Scheme chooser.
- For OS X / iOS
$ cd cocos2d-x/build $ open cocos_tests.xcodeproj
- For Linux
$ cd cocos2d-x/build $ ./install-deps-linux.sh $ cmake .. $ make
$ bin/cpp-empty-test/cpp-empty-test or $ bin/lua-empty-test/lua-empty-test
You may meet building errors when building libGLFW.so. It is because libGL.so directs to an error target, you should make it to direct to a correct one. `install-deps-linux.sh` only has to be run once.
- For Windows
- For Android
$ cd cocos2d-x/build $ python ./android-build.py cpp-empty-test -p 10 $ adb install ../tests/cpp-empty-tst/proj.android/bin/CppEmptyTest-debug.apk
Then click item on Android device to run tests. Available value of
-p is the API level, cocos2d-x supports from level 10.
