Welcome to the PropGE Project


PropGE is an open source collection of libraries and tools dedicated to the design and development of retro-style videogames with the Parallax Propeller microcontroller.

The engine provides video output at 256×192 (or 256×256) pixels resolution, 8×8 pixels tiles and 16×16 pixels sprites with 16 (out of 64) colors palettes. The Game Tools multiplatform application allows to draw graphics, write code and upload the program directly to a Propeller board.
