The best SFML games
« on: July 13, 2013, 04:59:00 pm »
Hi all, just wondering if anyone can point me to a few of the best of the best SFML games out there. It'd be cool to see what is possible with the library. Unfortunately, it's hard to know what games are made with what tools. So what do you think are a few of the best games made with SFML?

Atom Zombie Smasher is the best I know of and it'll be rather hard to top a game of that quality with anything. ;D

I don't think it's the best just because it is commercial. In my opinion, there are a lot of SFML games that are easily as good, if not better.

To give an overview over different genres of games made with SFML (I haven't played all of them myself):
The games I developed myself are Airport (top view air traffic controller) and Zloxx II (action jump'n'run).
Zloxx II: action platformer
Thor Library: particle systems, animations, dot products, ...
SFML Game Development: first SFML book

I love Airport! :D
And I'd also love Zloxx if I could manage to finish it. :-[

Hmmm my sfmlprojects.org site still hasn't gotten anywhere, if only I had time, motivation and the needed skills to get it somewhere. :-\
Anyone interested in helping? ;D

I should give that one a try... I am sucker for BSD games, and atc (which I assume served as inspiration for this game) was one of my favorites. Probably second only to sail.

EDIT: It demands libglew1.5, and my distro only offers 1.7 or 1.8 :(
EDIT2: Virtualbox saved the day. Fun little game! It's sometimes a bit hard to click on the planes, though.

Don't forget the french project Exodus : http://en.sfml-dev.org/forums/index.php?topic=10521.0

Pretty awesome game available on Steam :D


M.A.R.S is my favorite SFML game ever, and one of my fav games at all. The concept and modes are awesome =) The only thing the game lack is a networking mode, dev have stop its development AFAIK. But it's open-source, maybe some guy will add it some day =)

The best SFML game I have encountered would have to be Open Hexagon.

http://vittorioromeo.info/projects.html

It's a remake of Terry Cavanagh痴 famous Super Hexagon that greatly extends the game.
