in reply to some people; How is the fact it's made in Realbasic in any way relevant?

I've been using this on and off in it's previous incarnation (the green machine) and as a beta tester for PGF a while back. I've played with the demos since and am currently awaiting the full version.. It's never given me problems, the developer is extremely helpful and friendly..The performance of the engine increases and new features are added to it and the editor.. It's a brilliant app at frankly (what I'd consider) a ridiculously low price.. :)

Considering how powerful and easy to use it is.. There's nothing like this on the mac, and it's one of the few game creation tools I've played with which makes me excited about possibilities rather than frustrated..

Keep up the good work Jesse!

Not bad for a RealBasic product.

This is a good program to make games. It's very easy, and I was able to make a fun game in 30 minutes without any need for programming. Actually, you doin't need to do any programming at all, ever. And, it's very simple to use.

Without reading any instructions it took less than an hour to create my own level and build a stand alone game! This is amazing! This takes game development and makes throws it into a "what you see is what you get" editor! Althogh I am sceptical -it may only be for side scrolling platform games (like mario) wich would be very unfortunate. There is no direct E-mail address for the company instead they make you join the forum. So I am not sure if this is capable of producing top-down "zelda" style games, wich in my opinion, are the best form of 2D.

Pedro, that's not what the poster was talking about. He wants something that _isn't_ written in RealBasic.

Frankly, I'm getting tired of people apparently (and automatically) assuming that anything written in RealBasic is garbage, without giving it a chance. No, I don't program in RB, but hey, why not rate a program on its merits rather than gripe about the language it's written in?

It could be great if it wasn't written in RealBasic.

Your comments should address the functioning of the program itself. Otherwise your statement is meaningless.

Ten minutes to try and then it quits? Come on guys. There must be a better way. This is extremely annoying when you are just trying to make your way throught the tutorial. Due to reading the instructions and flipping back and forth between the instructions and the program I only got about 3 minutes to do anything.

Are you sure you want your users' first experience with your product to be one of unnecessary frustration?
