Design and Build Ambitious Games
Building levels with the scene editor come as easy as it gets. A single button click will applies the changes to the game without having to restart from scratch, helping the user to stay focused.
Network preview allows the user to build the game for other devices (e.g. phone, tables, other computers) without having to export and install them. This is perfect to test out the performance, the playability, and the scalability on smaller devices.
Game Objects' Behaviors
Add realistic behavior to objects with the physics engine.
Have objects move and avoid obstacles by applying pathfinding to them.
Make any object draggable with a mouse/touch actions.
Anchor objects will ensure that controls stay at the right position.
Use Tweens to smoothly animate the objects' position, size, opacity and color.
