JavaFX Game Development Framework

Maven Central Javadoc CI codecov

Why FXGL?

  • No native libraries, no installation, no setup required
  • “Out of the box”: Java 8/9/10, Win/Mac/Linux/Android 5.0+(Sample)/iOS(alpha)/Web(alpha)
  • Simple and clean API, higher level than other engines
  • Superset of JavaFX: no need to learn new UI API
  • Real-world game development techniques: Entity-Component, Event System, Scripting, etc.
  • Games are easily packaged into a single executable .jar

Good for:

  • Any 2D genre (side-scroller / platformer / arcade / RPG)
  • Complex UI controls
  • Hobby / academic / commercial projects
  • Teaching / learning / improving game development skills
  • Fast prototyping of game ideas
