Echoes+ an AppGameKit Classic

We'll soon be releasing AppGameKit V2.0.17 to all our AppGameKit 2 developers. While you're waiting for its impending release you might want to re-discover this great retro game made with AppGameKit.

Echoes+ will make your eyes bleed as you try and remain focused on the myriad of neon coloured enemies spiralling around your small space craft. This free game is a great example of what AppGameKit is capable of and also shows the wide range of platforms you can take your game to. 

Coming later in February - AppGameKit 2.0.17

The AppGameKit team are working hard to bring all AppGameKit users a new build later this February. Here's another sneak peek of the gorgeous 3D terrain system. We're currently working hard to optimise the terrain system for mobile devices.

The system can use dynamic skybox objects that draw the sun in the location of the directional light and add the foggy blue horizon colours using a shader.

What's coming in AppGameKit 2.0.17?

Rolling out later in February will be a new version of AppGameKit featuring some very cool features. We're sure you're going to have a lot of fun using them and we cannot wait to see what you create.

An important toolset for any game developer is a great terrain system. AppGameKit will feature commands that make it very easy to generate a terrain on which you can base your games. Here's a screen shot from the current progress on terrain, this first image is a 512x512 terrain matrix which is typical of what many users will use to create a landscape. The colours are generated by a shader based on height which we'll include in a demo when we release V2.0.17

AppGameKit Player Released on iOS!

You'll find the free to download app right here; AppGameKit V2.0.16 iOS Player
