I'm finding it difficult to get the hang of ('cause i'm thick), but it really is the best Game Creation Utility for the mac. Register it, 'cause it is such a proffesional and quality app. Pity there is no support for polygons and texture mapping etc. hint hint :-D

Great program! I made my first game (a very simple one) in two days. TNT Basic is easy to use even if you don't already have any programming skills.

TNT is a very easy to use programming tool. Making "maps" is very easy, and the programming is fun. The best part though is that it's 15 bucks.

Having problems with stuffit decompressing the archive, keep getting empty folders and folders with only 1 or 2 items in it.

Can we get this in a zip or dmg format instead.

"But I Can't Program!": I suppose this is where you expect us to say "You don't need to - you just click a few buttons and your game's ready!". Sorry, but not with TNT Basic. Games produced with such "click and play" creator kits are extremely limited in their functionality, there are after all only so many different games you can make by clicking a few buttons. Games produced by such tools tend to all have the same look and feel. You'll never create anything special with your hands tied and we want you to create something unique and special. TNT Basic gives you complete freedom to create, and it's so easy to use, that you'll wonder why anyone would use underpowered point and click game creation interfaces in the first place. You Can Program! In TNT Basic you write in a simplified beginners' programming language called basic. It's incredibly easy to learn and TNT Basic's on-line help system will assist you all the way from your first steps to your finished game. Check out our Learn To Program Tutorials, you'll be coding in no time!

Making games is a lot of fun, and our philosophy is that is should be easy enough that everyone can do it. Why not download TNT Basic today and experiment with our unique Game-In-60 tutorials? You can make your first game in under 60 minutes! Or download some free TNT Basic Games and follow our hacking guides to change the games and add cheats! Making games is easier than you think, the only limit is your imagination. You can use TNT Basic freely for 30 days while you evaluate it. After that TNT Basic will prompt you occasionally about registering. TNT Basic will not stop working if you neglect to register. Everything works in the unregistered TNT Basic except for the build standalone game command.
