Open Source 2D iPhone and iPad Game Framework

There are several iPhone game engines available, and of course Cocos2D is extremely popular in the development of 2D games on the iPhone and has a considerable community beside it.

That being said, if you’re just starting out, or you just don’t like how things are done with what’s out there I’ve found a great looking alternative.

While I’m not entirely sure of the direction this framework will take, I can tell you that it appears to be one very different from the Cocos2D philosophy to include everything that developers will ever want in a 2D game engine.

That alternative is the Sparrow Framework which is an open source game framework from Incognitek.  From what I’ve seen from looking at the framework it is very lightweight, and easy to use with all the core features you’d need to be able to create a good 2D game.

You can find the framework here: Sparrow Framework
Read about the features here: Sparrow Framework Features
And the philosophy behind the engine here: Sparrow Framework Philosophy

If you’re not sure about the alternatives, check out the Open Source iPhone and iPad Game Engine Comparison.
