Chukong Technologies's open source game engine Cocos2d-x is now optimized to run on devices with Imagination’s MIPS processor cores or PowerVR graphic processor cores.
Cocos2d-x is popular globally and more so in China. Statistics say 0.4 million developers worldwide and seven out of the ten top grossing games in China use Cocos2d-x to build their mobile games.
Ricardo Quesada, chief architect at Chukong Technologies says “Imagination provides the industry-leading PowerVR graphics processors inside many iconic smartphones and tablets. We’ve worked with them extensively on performance optimizations for games built using the Cocos2d-x engine and have been very happy with the tools and utilities they provide for Android. We have also used their new MIPS Creator CI20 microcomputer to further optimize our game engine and include support for the MIPS architecture.”
Bryce Johnstone, senior manager for third party alliances at Imagination says “Imagination's ecosystem reaches more than 60,000 developers, from established game studios to indie programmers. We are very excited about the work that Chukong Technologies has been doing with Cocos2d-x on the CI20. Our collaboration has resulted in a fully optimized game engine that will enable developers to create exciting games for the many devices in the market using PowerVR GPUs, and also port some of the world’s most popular titles to the MIPS architecture. This is a superb example of how companies benefit from working with PowerVR and MIPS.”
