A 2D physics engine for games. A physics engine simulates the physics of objects to give them believable real-life movement. Box2D is written in C++, but has been ported to many different languages by the user community.
|Developed by||Erin Catto|
|Used by||GameMaker Studio, Unity, BlitzBasic|
An earlier version of the Box2D engine, now known as Box2D Lite, was released primarily for educational purposes, based on a series of yearly Game Developers Conference presentations that Erin Catto has given.
A physics engine is not a game engine. Box2D is very good at simulating physics but it is not intended to draw nice graphics, use the network, build worlds or load a game level for you.
