Create, Edit, Code, Play and Share your own Graphic and Text adventures with TAC (The Adventure Creator).
The Adventure Creator makes it easy to create interactive adventures on the iPad with a simple to use, intuitive interface. Create your own worlds and add images and objects. Add interactivity through a simple programming matrix. Play your games and share them easily with others via airdrop or any cloud based solution (or email!).
TAC allows you to add your own objects, descriptions, verbs and conditions giving you limitless possibilities for adventure game creation. Be imaginative and creative with the puzzles and challenges you put into your games!
Games can be shared through airdrop (or any cloud based solution) as locked or unlocked files. Unlocked files can be edited and shared for collaborative projects, locked projects cannot be edited, so your adventure game puzzles have to be played to be solved!
TAC offers exciting ways for teaching coding concepts through its simple to use coding matrix, but can be used to simply create wonderful worlds with images with limited interactivity for very young children.
TAC features: text and icon interaction, animated icons, a simple and intuitive coding matrix, add your own locations, graphics, objects, verbs, markers, counters and conditions.
We aim to make the adventure creator the best we can, and test it extensively. Please contact us with any problems or concerns rather than posting a negative review that we have not been able to address. Literally 100s of students have used The Adventure Creator in programming workshops all over Europe with no issues.
- Fixed in app camera use.

Ratings and Reviews
Great for entertainment and learning
One of the first ‘games’ ever made for computers was Colossal Caves, a text adventure on a mainframe where you interacted with and navigated through a text based world by reading descriptions of locations and typing things like ‘Go North’ or ‘pick up the lamp' or ‘unlock the door with the key’. For years these games got better and better and more and more engaging with ever more descriptive worlds and better vocabulary parsers. We’d spend hours playing The Hobbit, Planetfall or, Trinity, becoming active participants in worlds that historically were only ever text narratives.
This app makes it possible to easily design and bring our own vision of these games to life on the iPad, and also includes the ability to bring rich graphics to add to the location descriptions.
For sheer entertainment, it can’t be beat - particularly if you like to design your own worlds - but take it into the classroom, and you have a way of meeting a kaleidoscope of needs. From simple interactive narratives that can be made for their own enjoyment, to games that can be shared for others to play, then add logic, puzzle creation and solving, and elements of programming concepts, this little beauty can lend itself to many of the challenges that teachers are looking for to provide 21st century challenges for the digital learner.
Do you get the impression I’m a fan? You betcha! Go North.
Literature, Imagination, Creation with gaming.
Wonderful app, that harks back to a golden age of creation.
I’m able to put together adventures simply with a taps of the iPad screen.
For those of you that grew up on text based adventures, TAC brings that experience right up into the modern age. With ease of use, you can implement graphics, sound and game logic.
The question is where does my imagination want to take me today?
Great idea aside from some minor limitations
Lovely idea and a brilliant teaching tool. Has a few drawbacks such as a limited amount of characters for location descriptions but this is being addressed in an update shortly I believe.
Overall a fantastic idea very well implemented. Great for creativity and for learning logic too, as well as being very good fun!
