VectorEngine

VectorEngine

VectorEngine is an AssemblyScript & WebAssembly vector rendering engine. It is designed with the goal of making a super simple rendering engine that can be used by anyone to write WebAssembly games using AssemblyScript. Tutorials are available on wasmbook.com.

Features

  • Retro game engine
  • Small (4-80kb)
  • Supports Multiplayer (beta)

Tutorials

Example Games

You can install VectorEngine using npm:
npm i vectorengine

HTML usage

Here's an example of the HTML code you would use with VectorEngine:
<html>
<head>
<style>
body {
background-color: #3b3b3b;
text-align: center;
}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<canvas width="640" height="640" id="cnvs"></canvas>
<script type="module">
import { runVectorGame } from "https://unpkg.com/vectorengine/lib/VectorEngine.js";
runVectorGame("cnvs", "helloworld.wasm", "gameLoop");
</script>
</body>
</html>

AssemblyScript usage

The AssemblyScript renders loops or text as vectors. Here is some code:
import { DisplayString, renderLoop } from 'vectorengine';
// /vectorengine/lib/vectorengine.ts';
let x: f32 = 0.0;
let y: f32 = 0.3;
let scale: f32 = 0.04;
let yellow: u32 = 0xff_ff_00_ff;
const helloWorld = new DisplayString("Hello Vector Engine", x, y, scale, yellow);
const heartLoop: StaticArray<f32> = [
// x, y
0, 0.4375, // first point
0.125, 0.625, // second point
0.2578125, 0.7421875, // third point...
0.375, 0.796875,
0.5, 0.796875,
0.625, 0.75,
0.7578125, 0.6171875,
0.875, 0.375,
0.875, 0.125,
0.75, -0.125,
0, -0.875,
-0.75, -0.125,
-0.875, 0.125,
-0.875, 0.375,
-0.7421875, 0.6171875,
-0.625, 0.75,
-0.5, 0.796875,
-0.375, 0.796875,
-0.25, 0.75,
-0.125, 0.625,];
let timeChange: f32 = 0.0; // ADD THIS LINE
export function gameLoop(delta: i32): void {
timeChange += <f32>delta / 1000.0; // ADD THIS LINE
helloWorld.render();
const scale: f32 = (Mathf.sin(timeChange * 18) + 1.05) / 50.0 + 0.2; // CHANGE LINE
const x: f32 = 0.0;
const y: f32 = -0.2;
const rotation: f32 = 0.0;
const red: u32 = 0xff_00_00_ff;
renderLoop(heartLoop, x, y, red, rotation, scale);
}
