What do you like best?

Monkey Engine is a fully functioning engine with the following functionality, extracted from your website. such as Graphics, game logic and utilities. The best thing about this engine is that it has a large amount of documented, with a complete collection of tutorials and guides available on the wiki. I found some entries that were outdated or invalid, but for the most part the document was solid and easy to follow. There is also a good reference in the form of JavaDoc. I may not always be the biggest Java fanatic, but I almost always love the references generated by JavaDoc! A part of everything has these Advantages Base of mature code, Excellent support for Blender files (models, animations, materials, etc.), Active Community

Open source BSD license, commercial friendly, Android compatible (even with native Bullet support!) And convenient multiplatform support without the need for cross-compilation code Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It has several minor flaws but all solvable for example:

The SDK is only available for Netbeans. However, the engine itself is completely independent of IDE.La physics has minor technical flaws, although that is more related to Bullet and Although several Forums are outdated enough are progressing in acquiring and improving the new updates. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Although I still lack it I recommend it since it has enough tutorials and help even to install it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am a small game developer for more than all my family and to teach my students and this Software is quite useful and ideal for developers who like object-oriented programming. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
