V-Play has recently announced that they’re now supported on the Raspberry Pi! The news came after a user succeeded in porting the framework to the Raspberry Pi in order to play V-Play’s version of Flappy Bird.
What is V-Play?
V-Play provides a large list of components that cover UI, multimedia, networking, etc. Importantly, all components that V-Play makes available through QML are implemented in C++, which guarantees the best performance. V-Play claims that thanks to QML you can write 10 times less code than using C++ directly. V-Play also provides a number of sample apps including a Twitter app, a messaging app, and a weather app for you.
Resolution & Aspect Ratio Independence
V-Play is built to handle all possible aspect ratios and resolutions of modern mobile devices. Simply design your game once for a logical scene and V-Play will take care of the rest. This means no black borders or distorted images, but a native look for smartphones, tablets and desktops with a single code version.
V-Play even loads different image bundles based on the devices’ pixel density to save costly memory resources.
V-Play Game Network
The V-Play Game Network is the cross-platform gaming service that allows players around the world to compete for game highscores and achievements. True cross-platform support allows your players to compete on iOS, Android, BlackBerry 10, Symbian, MeeGo and desktop platforms such as Windows, Mac and Linux. The V-Play Game Network will increase your player retention and bring new installs to your game.
V-Play Level Editor
Level creation & balancing are the most time-consuming tasks in 2D game development. Thus most developers create their own, specialized editor for their game to make level creation more efficient.
That’s why we engineered the V-Play Level Editor!
It is like an “Editor Toolbox to rapidly create content for any game you want”. So no matter if you create a platformer, a puzzle game, action game, Match-3 or a Clash of Clans like game – you can use the V-Play Level Editor for super-fast level creation & balancing.
V-Play Apps is a QML module for developing feature-rich, cross-platform apps with the native look and feel of the underlying platform optimized for iOS & Android mobile apps.
V-Play applications are written in QML code. QML is a declarative language provided by the Qt framework that makes it easy to create stylish, custom user interfaces with smooth transitions and animations. In addition, QML components can be linked with C++ code, allowing you to implement more complex functionality and access third-party framework integrations.
