Match 3 Game builder (r.1 04/08/11)

Post your Construct-made creations!

Post » Sat Jul 02, 2011 4:50 pm

Couple of screenshots of a Match3 game bulder i am working on.

The game(app) lets you create unique Match3 type game's using a simple wizard type interface.

The logic and events are based on PixelRebirth's match3 tutorial....so many thanks to him.



The following cap is just a simple example of a game created with it.

Not as easy as i thought it would be!

At the moment, the app lets you do the following -

1, Set the background image.
2, Change the individual frame images.
3, Pick different sounds for swapping, matching and destroying.
4, Create timed or random levels.
5, Create a new game folder containing the exe. file, images sounds that can be distributed.

Managed to sort the main bits, just need to add some extra stuff like bonuses and levels.

This is a test version of the 'Match3 game maker' i have been working on.





Open the rar file and copy the complete folder to your hard drive.
1, Start the builder by running 'Match3 Maker.exe'
2, Pick a background image.
3, Pick the animation frames for the blocks.
4, Pick the in-game sounds.
5, Enter a name and save.
6, The finished game should be in the the 'exported games \ game folder.
7, Test the finished game by running ' My game.exe'
8, If everything works, you should be able to copy the folder 'game' to another computer and it should play.

Check the help file for instructions
(Created with C2 (click the 'index' file to run)

This build only allows for basic game setting's to be changed (its a test)

Hopefully, the final version will allow you to change all the game settings (grid sizes, game graphics, sounds, difficulty settings, timers, game logo.....etc.

Match3 maker test


Forgot to mention,

When your creating a game you can click on the blocks in the main window
to test the settings.
