The Frame Editor:
The games you make will consist of frames; each frame can be one of four things, a title, an overworld, a shop, or a cinematic. The game will always start on frame 1, but from there, frames do not have to play in sequence. Each frame will have options to set where a player will go when leaving the frame. To create a new frame, click the "empty" grey frames along the top of the level editor screen. Then pick what type of frame you will create from the menu. Here are the types of frames:
Title- Use this at the beginning of your game (best at frame 1), or to divide your game into chapters. A title will consist of a simple text title at the center of the screen, and can contain save/load options if you prefer.
Overworld- This is the overworld map. You can have as many of these as you like and link them together through exits to make the world as large as you wish. Each overworld can have three total exits, two labeled as "exit 1" and "exit 2" which can lead to shops or other frames, and the third exit, which is where the player will go after defeating a boss. Set these options on the left hand side of the overworld menu so the game will know where these exits will lead. Here you can also enter enemy ID numbers so the game will know what enemies the player will encounter on this map, as well as the boss ID. Character ID's are displayed at the top of the character creation page.
Each overworld map has two layers. The first layer is it's base color, and can look like grass, snow, sand, etc. The player can walk on all of these freely. The second layer determines what is an obstacle, what causes damage, what heals, etc. Draw the base layer using the first row of tiles next to the map grid. Then use the second layer to set boss locations, exit locations, healing tiles, etc. Boss locations, obstacles, healing tiles and exits can look like different things. Click the green arrows next to these tiles to change their appearance on the map.
Shop- This frame consists of a shopkeeper, which you will pick from you list of created characters, as well as a selection of three weapons. Enter the text for the shopkeeper, as well as the item ID numbers and prices of the three weapons you wish you sell in this shop.
Cinematic- A cinematic consists of a character, which you will pick from your list of created characters, and some dialog. After the player reads it, they will click the "next" button to proceed to the next desired frame.
Be sure to buy the full version for more monsters, more weapons, more heroes, and more possibilities!!!
Really fun but needs some work
This is a fun app and I like how it works, but some buttons started disappearing like "next will take you to..." And I can't set the number. it needs some bug fixes I mean I love how you can make games but it could be a bit more simple. Also the randomized characters are a bit hard to change because I'm playing this on an iPod and the buttons are a bit hard to press. But overall I like the app! Just needs bug fixes in the next update. Also i just made a full game that took forever and i wanted to go back to the title so i pressed the X button and it deleted all my work! What the crap i spent so much time and it deleted it like that! It should be harder to delete a game i'm so angry all my work is gone! Really, this needs to be fixed it should not be that easy to delete you work. Really.
Very cool, BUT
This is very cool and fun to use, but the only thing is why does the full version cost money on IOS and not on Google play.... It would be better if you made this just completely free. Also, there are little bugs here and there in the game. For example, when I was making a Line of Exit 2's on the side of one of my frames it wouldn't work right away to go to the frame I put it on. Also when I switched a caption frame to a title frame the dialogue I had from the caption frame remained after I had made the frame a title...one other issue is that when I was in the shop frame, it didn't give me the box for the frame number to go to on next. If you guys could fix these bugs then I would Definitely rate this game 5 stars...
Luv this game but...
The next buttons never work and sometimes the exit doesn't bring you to the next stage😭. It would be awesome if you could make the enemies visible and be able to have one of the monsters you created to be your buddy that you can fight with.🌒〰🌘 You should be able to have an inventory and every time you buy an item you can keep it and not have to buy it again if you want it back. Maybe more monster combinations and to be able to draw one yourself. ( cuz I want to make a living cake and I bet other people want to make slimes or something too👍) and don't forget about potions and not having to step on the boss thing to summon a boss! Thx if you read this!😊
