About this app

This is a fully-featured mobile port of the *awesome* 2D game framework that uses the Lua scripting language. This port allows you to both run and play existing LÖVE games and also to create new games directly on your mobile device!

# Instructions

You can run games in multiple ways:

Upload your .love file to a web server and open the link with a browser on your Android device
- or -
Put the .love file on your device and open it with a file explorer (e.g. X-plore, open file as */*, select LÖVE for Android).
- or -
Extract it to /sdcard/lovegame such that main.lua is found at /sdcard/lovegame/main.lua and then run the app
- or -
Extract your game anywhere on your device and open its main.lua using a file browser (e.g. X-plore, open main.lua as */*, select LÖVE for Android).

With extracted sources you can edit the source files with any text editor of your choice to tweak your game or add new functionality.

People complaining about it just being a gif... they clearly have never used lov2d before. It is working as intended. However, I could not get it to work. I followed each of the instructions and none of them worked. When I got to X-plore and try to open it with LOVE for android, it doesn't show up (11.3 version). Please update instructions for a proper/updated way to run games. If not the developer, someone who has got it working, can you please share how you did it.

I love this app. I use it on my Windows 10, and its easy to get familiar with LÖVE lua. I reccomend it to any new programmer. TO ALL THOSE ONE STAR REVIEWS: im pretty sure this is just for playtesting mobile versions of löve games. It requires a text editor to run code YOU create (one that runs lua, to be precise) theres no game because you need to write one (And, how could that possibly be a GIF?)

Used to use .10 and could get files to open. File managers no longer let me choose love as an option to open files. Could not add as an option. Nothing past .9 Works on computer either. Access to older version would be nice. File extension .lua does not show love2d as an option. Used xplore to try. No love as * option.
