AGK for Hyper Casual 2D/3D Games.


Yes, we have Unity, Unreal, Godot etc but they stink in my humble opinion when it comes to small, hyper casual game coding.

AGK, I know does not have all the bells and whistles that Unity or other Big name engines have, it is perfect though to get your casual games whether 2d/3d out into the wild.

Anybody who is looking for a 2d/3d solution that is lowcost and easy to use needs to check out AGK.

That's all. :)

I agree, you can quickly get on-board with a familiar flavour of BASIC, with included functions for game making.

The language itself is a bit oldskool and verbose, but it gets the job done.

I agree, most engines are way too bloated for small lean indie projects where you want the best possible performance due to targeting HTML5, low end PC or mobile.
AGK requires a bit more work, but it is flexible enough for anything and the result can be optimized way better than in one of the clicketyclackers.

..its unfinished..'supported' file formats doesnt work at all with very own commands AGK offers, or at least, not for all aspects advertised..physics is broken and unfinished..i have AGK, i like it but reality is roughly what i just has potential but it will be a bumpy road to push out something without hitting every now and then some fundamental block missing..

Steve Elliott:
Yes it's definitely limited for 3D, you're on your own a bit at times so you need to bypass the built-in functions and use the renderer with your own routines.  Although basic 3D is ok and for 2D it's a much better experience.
