Blacksmith 2D


Black is a highly optimized 2D framework for web, mobile games, and playable ads.

Most valuable when size matters
All engine code is written in ES6, fully GCC typed, allowing to eliminate all dead code from your app. For example the size of Donuts game is only 34KB gzipped for both engine and game code (GCC version).

Advanced scene graph and rendering pipeline
Dirty flag tracks scene changes and avoids unnecessary calculations and context calls. If no changes were made to the scene since last frame, no rendering will be done. Battery efficient.

Cache as bitmap
Automatically detects changes and updates bitmap cache. Allows to gain even more performance on heavy scenes and runs smoothly on old devices.

For more information about how to use Black Engine, please check the Blacksmith 2D website.
