Product Description

Programming made fun with help from the minds at Nintendo. Turn gaming time into learning time with the Game Builder Garage™ software. Kids can learn how to make their own games with guided lessons created by Nintendo. From a simple game of tag to a run-and-jump obstacle course, each lesson is broken down into multiple, manageable segments that let kids go at their own pace—and have fun in the process.

ADDITIONAL INFO

Learn the basics of visual game programming: By playing through interactive lessons, kids will learn the basics of visual game programming. Nodon, colorful creatures with distinct personalities, keep kids engaged through lessons with tips and motivating messages. With a simple press of a button, swap between the programming screen and the game screen—watch how programming changes the game on the fly.

Track progress and build confidence: After completing each lesson and building a game, kids will test their knowledge by completing Checkpoints—small puzzles or tasks to solve with programming. Master these skills and head to Free Programming mode to let your imagination (and programming chops) run wild.

Ok, so, imagine Super Mario Maker meets Scratch, and that's basically Game Builder Garage. Tons of powerful tools to create amazing games, and an amazing tutorial to get you started. The perfect game for emerging programmers. =D

It’s not very intuitive and the tutorials are annoyingly long and repetitive. Also the fact that you can’t browse through other people’s creations is pretty upsetting.

While our friends at Nintendo might be a bit too privy with tutorials, we think the payoff of being able to have fun experiencing everyone's imagination is worth it! Though we get it might not be the ideal experience for everyone, so we're reaching out with an email to see how we can help!

When my son downloaded this game I told him that I didn't think it would be a game that he played over a long period of time. You know, like the ones you download and just forget about. Boy was I wrong! He has taken the time to complete the development lessons and now he is a programmer! I was shocked at his ability to create boards after learning how everything worked. He gets so excited to show me all the new things he had created and learned and he leaves me blown away. Being a mom, its also a pro that you have to read within the game. Love it!!!

This game has so much things to use to make games and you can make some really complex things in Game Builder Garage, however there is very little things to do if you bought this game to play user-created games rather than make your own since the only way to play other user-created levels is entering a code.
