Abstract—The growing relevance of gaming engines in the gaming industry is making it gradually harder for a prospective developer to choose a game engine. In this analytical paper, the authors analyzed the following game engines: Cocos2D-X, CryEngine, GDevelop, Godot, Panda3D, Unity, and Unreal Engine. In every section, the authors elaborated on the advantages and disadvantages of each engine. Some users claim that older gaming engines like CryEngine are irreplaceable and that their engine structure should be exemplary for other engines. The new modern wave of game engines including Unity and Unreal Engine end up dominating the market with compatibility at every gaming platform and the ability to create both 2D and 3D games. Along with that having a strong community and developer support results in a very content user base.

Index Terms—Gaming technologies, video game engine, unreal engine, unity, Godot
