A game engine is a library that simplifies creation of games. It could include any and all functionality from the following:

  • just creating easy-to-use wrappers over system interfaces such as graphics API
  • user control inputs and audio (SDL, ZenGL)
  • adding additional interfaces to create and control the game content environment (as e.g. done by Castle Game Engine)

Game Engines

Here's a list of game engines that are Pascal/Delphi based or have Pascal binding libraries.

Name Site Language Notes
SDL www.libsdl.org Bindings
GLScene glscene.sourceforge.net FPC/Delphi It's not really a game engine, but rather 3D rendering engine.
Castle Game Engine http://castle-engine.sourceforge.net/ FPC
ZenGL www.zengl.org FPC/Delphi
Quad-Engine quad-engine.com Delphi

Allegro alleg.sourceforge.net Bindings Allegro-pas
Phoenix code.google.com/p/phoenixlib FPC/Delphi
GameMaker: Studio www.yoyogames.com N/A Yes, it's not really a game engine library. But it's a game engine and studio written in Delphi. Special Pascal proud.

Physics Engines

These engines simulate the physical world (collisions, trajectories etc). Not really game engines per se, but could certainly be used in games.
