I'm looking for simple freeware engine that allows to make 2d isometric games, I don't need anything sophisticated, just tile-based level creation and walking around with sprite character (and collisions character - background).

I've found interesting engine over the source forge (http://gamedev.sourceforge.net/), but it doesn't allow to make isometric levels. Maybe somebody know something like that?

I've also found Multimedia Fusion, which isn't free, but it seems quite powerful, does anybody played with it?

thanks in advance.

I know devmaster site, but AFAIK it's database contains only 3d engines. I'm looking for 2d one (like Infinity engine, or Diablo, but simplier)

Sorry, but I work at full time and I have no time to join any project :(
I want only to make 'walkable' level for a friend. That's why I'm looking for engine that will allow me to make simple level without any C/C++ knowledge, do You know - does Your friends engine allow that?

Thanks for replies

Not sure if this will get you what your looking for but you can at least test your tiles in it.

EDIT: but not free I am afraid.
