Summary

The AMCOG Development kit makes game writing on RISC OS much simpler.

It also comes with 2 full games : Mutant Penguin and Cyborg.

The kit includes:

  • A core library to enable sprite plotting, error handling, screen transitions, MP3 playback and much more.
  • A tile library to provide a general game engine for games based on tiles. For further information on tile based game engines see : Wikipedia Tile Game Engine Feature Page
  • A sound library and virtual sound chip RDSP for simplifying music playing and sound effect generation in games.
  • Game sprites
  • Music tracks
  • Sound samples
The free graphics, music tracks and sound samples are included a well as two games developed using the kit:

  • Mutant Penguin is available separately for free in a 'crunched form'. However, the AMCOG Development Kit includes the source code as a working example of the core, tile and sound libraries.
  • Cyborg is available separately as a paid for title and is more complex example in that includes multiple screens per level and more game logic. The core code for this game was written in less than 2 days as a way of proving the kit library functions.

Compatibility

The AMCOG Development Kit is compatible with RISC OS 4 on Virtual Acorn and RISC OS 5 on Iyonix, Raspberry Pi 1,2 & 3 Beagleboard and Pandaboard based systems, ARM X6 and RPCEmu.
