Oolonge Engine

The Oolong game engine is a 3D engine written in C++, and provides excellent performance. For those of you wanting to create games for the iPhone, the Oolong Engine provides a great starting point. 3D game creation becomes a whole lot simpler and it ties in with the Bullet Physics SDK. The Oolong Engine is written in C++ with some help from Objective-C. It will help you to create new games and port existing games to the iPhone, the iPod touch and the iPad. 

Features of  Oolong Engine:
     OpenGL ES 1.1 and OpenGL 2.0 (> iPhone 3GS, iPod touch third gen, iPad) support
     Math library that supports floating-point calculations with an interface very similar to the D3D math library
     Support for numerous texture formats including the PowerVR 2-bit, 4-bit and normal map compression formats
     Support for PowerVR's POD (Scene and Meshes), .3DS and .blend file formats
     Touch screen support
     Accelerometer support
     Text rendering to support a basic UI
     Timing: several functions that can replace rdstc, QueryPerformance etc.
     Profiler: industry proven in-game profiler
     Resources streaming system
     Bullet SDK support (for 3D Physics)
     Audio engine with OpenAL support
     Networking with the ENet library
     Industry proven memory manager from 

The downside of the Oolong engine is that it is difficult to use for those that are not familiar with OpenGL ES.
Oolong provides support for a wide variety of features, and very good performance, as I said the only problem with Oolong is that it is difficult to use.  This is a low-level engine designed for programmers so if you’re just getting into game development I would stay away.
You will find the latest version on google code, there is very little documentation for Oolong, but the community is very active, and you can get answers to many of your questions there.
I would recommend Oolong to those looking to create their own game engine looking for something to start with.
