Be the creator: a gamer’s world

AAISHA KALLIER

The world of gaming is always expanding. New titles and remakes of old games are released every month, and there is such a wide variety that it can become difficult to sift through all the games to find ones that suit you. An option is to create your own game, and there are multiple websites that help facilitate this process.

 

Flowlab allows you to customise every aspect of the game you’re creating. You can create the background and sprites and decide how players will control their character. The in-depth creation of levels and mechanics is made simple enough for anyone to understand. Though it will take time to create a masterpiece, you can share the link to your game with friends and the Flowlab community.

 

Sploder allows you to create a variety of online games. You have the option to choose from arcade, platformer, spaceship shooter or space adventure games. For advanced game makers, the service includes a physics puzzle maker with which you are able to create original minigames. You will then be able to control what objects are in the game, what physics are present and even customise the game using your own game art.

 

Cyberix3D allows you to create complex games with 3D graphics. The games created on this platform look and play as if they were made by professionals. The platform includes options to create first person shooters, card, driving, and adventure games. This site accommodates the difficulty in the creation of games by giving step-by-step tutorials.

 

Another great game making site is Gamefroot. With Gamefroot you can learn how to program and publish your creations. It also gives you an opportunity to earn money from the games you make, provided you subscribe to the website. The design environment provides you with a wide range of terrain, character and level options and you are able to create a well-balanced and interesting game.

Creating your own custom game has never been easier, with each of these sites offering something unique to the creation of a game, while providing easy to understand logic.
