Which game engine should i use?

8 replies 107 views Edited Jul 14, 2013
I wanna make a 2d sidescroller with sprites. I want it have graphics like metal slug, un squadrin, kirby squeak squad or anywhere in between. Please help.

Is unity a good option?

Yea for these type of games, the ones above are NOT viable.

Unity 3D is 100% free, royalty free, and is great for sidescrollers.

Cry engine and frost bite cost millions. Dont bother. My course is sponsored by Crytec and I hate their engine. So buggy and unrealisable.

What platform are we talking about?

Then the Unity Engine is your best bet.

Regarding Frostbite and Cryengine:

I had decided to put the two highest-end engines I knew of. Not as a serious recommendation.
