Physics engine

A physics engine would allow for Angry Bird like games.

https://love2d.org/wiki/love.physics (a Lua game engine) uses http://box2d.org/about/. I don't know if a C++ library can be added to Hollywood. Maybe there're alternatives.

Oh, sorry, C++ is not very convenient to pack into Hollywood plugins. It's no problem at all on all other systems but on AmigaOS it requires some effort.

I found an overview page
Chipmunk is one of the rare engines written in C. I don't have experience with that one.

Don't you have some experience with C too? Could be a nice exercise to port this to a Hollywood plugin yourself ;-)
