and basic4gl library would be great to add credits, title, score and so on (FreeBasic graphic commands can't be used in opengl mode).
Also, it would allow using freebasic to compile basic4gl programs, with few changes: basic4gl is more user friendly, and offers a nice development environment, while freebasic produces faster executable, and is multi-platform, so, both languages could be improved, with a better compatibility.

I believe B4GL uses Corona. However I have no idea what layer of abstraction b4gl adds on top of the library itself. You could also download the source off the homepage to see what b4gl adds to the library (if anything).

Basic4GL adds sprite manipulation functions. Well thats what I can see. The corona library isn't that good really and it's hard to find good documentation about it so I wouldn't really know.
If you download the source from the wiki as the home page hasn't got a link to any source code download. You could look at the sprite library section. You might be able to use it in C/C++ but with free basic it wouldn't work.
