What is Genuts?

Genuts API provides a consistent Java framework for game development. It contains a library with classes primarily intended for sprite-based games conception, including functions for sprite manipulation and collision detection.

Additionally, Genuts API will provide a level of abstraction for some of Java's game-related API, such as images manipulations and event handling.

Target devices are:

  • Web games (Windows, MacOS, *nix)
  • Mobile phones
  • PDA

Genuts API is compatible with Java 1.1, Java 2 & Java ME (MIDP 1.0).

Genuts is not a game construction kit for non-programmers. In order to use Genuts, you need to know Java, including object-oriented design and how to compile and run Java Archive (JAR) files.
