Putting together this game was fairly frustrating. Seeing some of the more advanced games that had already been submitted and some of the examples was very disconcerting. I had no idea where to find controls beyond simple commands, like turn at a certain angle or move over 5 steps. It was difficult to find the templates/pre-made elements to use as building blocks for a more complicated game. I ended up creating the entire animation from scratch, drawing the background, images, etc. - the final product, after much more work than I had expected, looked ridiculously simplistic and did absolutely nothing. It would be much easier to use if there were more explication included in the program, or a "wizard" type feature that walked you through at least the first project.
- nesson here: which program is yours?
