About cocos2d

The open source platform providing suite of game development tools used by the gaming developers across the world is Cocos2d. Apart from developing games, you can also develop applications and interactive programs. You will find many independent editors in the Cocos2d community, providing efforts in the domains of particle editing, Tilemap editing, and many more.

This platform allows you to implement basic animation that can be implemented on sprites with the help of actions and timers. These actions are combined together to design the complex animations. Many Cocos2d implementations allow you to make relevant changes such as size, scale, placement, and other effects.

History of cocos2d

In a town named Los Cocos, a game developer created a 2D game with many friends. This game was named after the birthplace that is Los Cocos. Later on several applications were made available on the iOS platform. And, then Cocos was renamed as Cocos2d. Cocos2d was ported into several programming languages that fit into all platforms.

In November 2010, the developer from China released cocos2d-x on the basis of Cocos2d. Cocos2d-x is also an open-source platform under MIT license and allowed compilation and running of code on several platforms. This game framework had been written in C++ and JavaScript.
