2D: Unreal Engine 4 or LibGDX?

Due to the fact that the Unreal Engine 4 became free, I had an interesting question.
Is it worth it to use such a monster for developing 2D games?
The goal of mobile platforms, desktop secondary.
Have long wanted to try myself in gamedev as a hobby. Of course I heard about LibGDX which is successfully developing, is multiplatform, has a large community, many articles and good books.
Actually, the Unreal Engine has a lot more tools for the implementation of the product.

As an example: Tappy Chicken on IOS and Tappy Chicken for Android

I love our Country Advice, people asking about specific engines, it is beginning to advise each his own:) a Classic situation.

According to your question, time has passed well, decided for yourself? I just started learning UE as a tool to work on 2D projects, although the target platform for me, desktop system, mobile versions don't even consider. Also really like the instrumentation, the same Paper 2D, judging by the video reviews over the past year, has made great progress in the new versions of UE. And so, regardless of two-dimensional games, set that out of the box is impressive. In Unity, this is not for a normal human user is forced to buy the tools for a fairly noticeable amount. That's pretty cool, especially in the long term the further development of 3D.

BluePrint - so do like me a fairy tale!
UE told me something like as the engine, but chose Unity since it is more material and vivid community - peyton.Hagenes27 commented on September 18th 19 at 23:57

+ Also ask this question) UE4 monster in 3d with his blueprints)) But in 2d it is interesting to know.
But I'm looking at Corona SDK or UE4))
In Corona I didn't like what he sends to their servers who knows what before the Assembly of the project. It's very strange. - peyton.Hagenes27 commented on September 19th 19 at 00:01
I found one interesting engine) Buildbox. Visual game creation pro is 2675. There are a bunch of cracks)) the demonstrations very easy to create games. Designer fresh. Now shake the cracks I want to try out. All types of 2d games) Phases of a Successful game , Bounce. A bunch of tutorials on YouTube. - ollie_Lebsack commented on September 19th 19 at 00:04
argue that does not need programming knowledge) For the 2d is fine. forum.cgpersia.com/f13/buildbox-111449 - there is a crack with the program itself. Here is the official site https://www.buildbox.com - Stevie73 commented on September 19th 19 at 00:07
forum.cgpersia.com/f13/buildbox-111449 there in comments there are various files from trialkey - jesse commented on September 19th 19 at 00:10

Personally, I'd recommend corona sdk , it is very easy to learn. I have only 2 weeks to study it , and has achieved very poor results. For example, during spirit week development I was able to create a tank battle(well, as a dandy)
You know what's great, but I don't know Lua ! :( - peyton.Hagenes27 commented on September 19th 19 at 00:03
