Game Features

Make a Game


The possibilities are endless! Choose from a massive selection of heroes, enemies, special items, and more! In the game editor, customize your levels with unique terrain and interesting landmarks. Build worlds, place enemies, hide items, write dialogue, and set rules to personalize the gameplay details.

Play Your Game


Once you’ve chosen the elements of your game, it's time to play it! Have fun exploring your creation, then hop back into edit mode when inspiration strikes. By blurring the lines between making and playing, creating a game has never been easier!

Share with Others


Upload the games you’ve created and share them with the community! You’ll be able to see what other players have come up with and download the games they’ve made as well.

Choose Your Characters


Select the hero of your game from several provided options, including knights, superheroes, ninjas, cats, unicorns, vegetables, and much more! Heroes need foes to fight, so select some enemies from the editing menu, place an advancing army, and let the battle for the fate of the world begin.

Pick a Genre


Start with a blank slate or build from a sample game based on the genre of your choosing! You can create an exciting side-scrolling adventure, blast enemies off the screen in classic shoot 'em up, or set off on an epic adventure filled with of secrets, lore, and loot.

Establish Your Rules


Decide how your game will play by determining specific sets of rules! Choose how many levels your game will have, how enemies will behave, how the camera will follow the player, and more.
