Hi,

I have been using HGE(Haaf Game Engine) for developing games in C++, now i want to make 2D games using Java. Can you guys suggest some good game engines which fulfill all basic requirements (It doesnt have to neccesarilly have networking capabilities).

PS :- The Game Engine should have good tutorial lessons and should be easy to learn!

I'm currently working on a 2d game with the SWT/JFace GUI library's with a friend. They support in-line opengl with a GLCanvas.
I've played with slick too, which is nice. The only reason we aren't using slick is because we want more control of what happens / the game to be more lightweight and only have things we actually need, slick would be overkill for our project. Not to mention SWT is just fun, so we wanted to see how far we could take it.

NOTE: I Don't recommend using SWT for taking the place of a 2d game engine, it was not designed to make games xD, just throwing it out there. I would personally recommend slick for simplicity.
