    That is a difficult question to answer. Asphyre is popular, but so is glscene. Then there are many games using JEDI-SDL directly. I'd say don't use what is popular, but use the game engine that suits your needs best.

    If you do 2D, check out S2DL. It is easy to get into though powerfull.

    Sky Krawler, you are confusing "game engine" with "sdk". An "sdk," also referred to as a "package," is a bundle of source code which you can, and often do, use to make your own game engine. An engine is a ready to run "engine" to power the entire backend of your game.

    Game engine example: A6
    SDK: Asphyre

    Try searching the forum for LEAF 2, which is a pascal based game engine.

    Hi skykrawler, welcome to PGD!

    There are lots of SDKs (Software Development Kit) and APIs (Application Program Interface) that are made for or used by Pascal and Object Pascal. The forum sections below this one list some of the more popular ones.

    Robert is right about the game engine being a seperate thing from the SDK or API. Usually most game engines use a few to several SDKs or APIs to run off of. Most if not all SDKs would be based off of a single API or more.

    With time to explore and try out different ones you'll figure out which ones you like best and what each they have to offer. It takes a bit of time though.

    If you are not quite diggin' those and want another option. A great one to try is JEDI-SDL. Has lots of demos too. S2DL is based off of JEDI-SDL anyhow.
