Popfly Game Creator Goes Beta


Congrats to the Popfly team for moving Popfly Game Creator from alpha to Beta and adding a bunch of handy features. For the full rundown, check out the Popfly Team Blog

Here’s a few of my favorite features

 

Inserting images into a game

  • Alpha (before): You had to manually build XAML and manually upload images for an actor and make sure the URL is
  • Beta (after): Native support for adding images to an actor

 

Playing Audio

  • Alpha (before): Popfly let you play built-in sounds with no code, but if you wanted to play a custom sound clip required custom JavaScript code
  • Beta (after): No code to play custom sounds

 

Testing Different Scenes

  • Alpha (before): You had to manually play the game to get a scene or add a custom keyboard shortcut to load a scene
  • Beta (after): Built-in support for previewing any scene

 

Customizable actor collisions

  • Alpha (before): Your actor “hit box” (the area for actor collisions) was either a square or a circle and you could *not* make it smaller
  • Beta (after): You can drag and drop the hit box and make it larger or smaller

 

All-in-all, lots of good, meaty features for Game Creators.
