Monkey is a next-generation games programming language that allows you to create apps on multiple platforms with the greatest of ease. Monkey works by translating Monkey code to one of a different number of languages at compile time - including C++, C#, Java, Javascript and Actionscript. Monkey games can then be run on potentially hundreds of different devices - including mobile phones, tablets, desktop computers and even videogame consoles. Monkey saves you time and allows you to target your apps at multiple markets and app stores at once, potentially mutiplying sales several times over. So what are you waiting for? Get started with Monkey!

'Scrolling' map with real-time lighting and shadows.


Above is a video of Phoenix USC's Alien Phoenix framework running a 'scrolling' lighted map scene. :D Complete with one lighted game map scene window and two other interactive game windows that use no lighting. I have the touch screen overlay (buttons) also running with the lighted map scene for testing. This was recorded on my Linux Mint system.

This marks one of the last hurdles in developing the Alien Phoenix gaming framework and the results are promising even for mobile devices. Still a lot to do but seeing a lighted map scene in the frameworks GUI just made my day and I had to share. :)

I'll be working over the next few weeks implementing the rest of the mapping, lighting and shadows framework. So look for the next update then, hopefully with a more detailed map and perhaps some collision.

Off to code and thanks for the support.

I am currently using MonkeyX, the second version of Monkey and I absolutely love it!! I started writing my first phone app for Android in Java and when I was done, I started looking at porting to Iphone. Thats when I found MonkeyX. Within a Month I had my game completed and ported to Android and Iphone. It is definitely worth looking into. The language is very easy to pick up and porting to different devices/ platforms is a pretty easy routine.
