Love 2D Runtime

Your rating: None Average: 4.5 (2 votes)

LOVE is an open source, cross platform 2D game engine which uses the Lua scripting language. LOVE can be used to make games of any license allowing it to be used for both free and non-free projects. - official page

From sashikknox (me):
This just love runtime, its not game, its game engine. This is first SailfishOS port release, need a lot of work with it (no screen orientation changes, sound volume nto change by volume bettons, not support gamepads)  


This package do not add icon in Launcher panel, its just binary runtime. If you want check - work it or not on your device, just run command in terminal   
This should show  game engine screen ( like on screenshot )
With this runtime, you can develop games directly on your device )

Sailfish's port page (in develop):
If you like my work, You can bye me a cup of coffe!

It seems that love builds on arm64, can anyone test it? here is a link for reference:

I managed to make it work by installing modplug and then this build:

In case anyone is interested I adapted several games for touch controls, a list of them with their correspondent link to their repository can be found here:

Just to help you save time, the games that are currently playable on Sailfish are:

- arkanoid.

- boxclip

- gravitonik

- ladybug,

- Match4gravity,

- max-downforce (with some performance issues yet),

- pacpac

- tiny farm

The rest of the games crash / have different issues so far and won't work.

The list is growing too much to post it here so I suggest to check the wiki of the virtual gamepad repository provided above to see the status of every game.
