Chipmunk

http://chipmunk-physics.net/
a fast 2D physics library written in C.

Chipmunk is a fast 2D rigid body physics library written in C. Supports fast circle, segment, and convex polygon collisions.

  • Designed for 2D video games.
  • Circle, convex polygon, and line segment collision primitives.
  • Multiple collision primitives can be attached to the same rigid body.
  • Fast collision detection by using a spatial hash for the broad phase.
  • Extremely fast impulse solving by utilizing Erin Catto's contact persistence algorithm.
  • Support for collision callbacks based on object types.
  • Impulses applied to contact points can be retrieved after the impulse solver has finished.
  • Several kinds of joints available.
  • C99 implementation, no external dependencies.
  • Ruby extension available.
  • Simple, read the documentation.
