Cocos2d-x

Cocos2d-x is an open source game framework written in C++, with a thin
platform dependent layer. It can be used to build games, apps and other
cross platform GUI based interactive programs.

Brand New Graphic Renderer: The Cocos2d-x renderer is optimized for 2D
graphics with OpenGL. It supports Skeletal Animation, Sprite Sheet
Animation, Coordinate systems, Effects, multi resolution devices, Textures,
Transitions, TileMaps and Particles. It adopts a Renderqueue design.

Cocos Studio is a free and professional game development toolkit that
enables game developers to quickly create game content, and takes that
tedious work and simplifies it with straightforward GUI editors.

Cocos Studio includes 4 core game development editors: UI Editor,
Animation Editor, Scene Editor and Data Editor. Developers can focus on

their specific roles and enjoy better streamlined workflow. This enables game studios to collaborate with ease, and focus on what each does best in order to achieve better quality and faster turnaround time. This saves time and money.

platforms and a solid selection of tools, it is hard not to recommend
Cocos.
