libGDX is a Java game development framework that provides a unified API that works across all supported platforms.

The framework provides an environment for rapid prototyping and fast iterations. Instead of deploying to Android/iOS/Javascript after each code change, you can run and debug your game on the desktop, natively. Desktop JVM features like code hotswapping reduce your iteration times considerably.

Libgdx tries not be the "end all, be all" solution. It does not force a specific design on you.

I just created a game called Chomp! using LibGdx. I found it a great library and I liked that it was a programmers platform since I am a Java programmer.

My game is now on the Google Play Store. It is about a crocodile that catches food. You control the crocodile with the accelerator.

Wally the Crocodile catches food from all directions and angles.

Three ways to play.

Why the developer is TOME studios and the license is Commercial?
It's being developed by the libgdx guys and the license should be Apache2.

it's funny that some people thought things would get easier with Vulkan. They will, but not in the 'easier for newbies' kind of sense.

@matteblair yeah, FMOD is great! Would use it with libGDX if the license was permissive.

@meoyawn because there's hardware decoders on the device used by the OS APIs which you have no access to in your code.

So, the alternative is to do your own audio processing, and just pipemit through AudioTrack. Which means you burn CPU and battery. Sad state
