Go from physical blocks to a virtual game that you designed! Bloxels allows players to be designers, programmers, and publishers when it comes to this video game creation platform. All you need to get started is Bloxels and the free Bloxels Builder app for your smart device.
The 13 x 13 gameboard is your design space and you use the eight different colored blocks (320 blocks total) to make your creations. You have blocks designated for terrain, coins, power-ups, water, enemies, story blocks, exploding blocks, and hazards. Players can design the layout of their game and even create their own characters using the blocks. Once you’ve gotten a room or a character exactly how you want it, snap a picture of it on the Bloxels Builder app and further customize it before you animate and play.
A completed game can be shared on the Bloxels Infinity Wall (Bloxels online account needed) for other 13-bit builders to play. The best part is if anyone wants to play your creations they have to buy it with in-game coins. You earn the coins on these purchases and can use them to buy other player’s games. It’s a great way to constantly change your world without having to design everything yourself. Plus, the added bonus is that parents don’t have to spend a ton of real money to get extras in the game because players can earn their coins themselves.
Bloxels is the perfect entry point for anyone interested in video game development and is most appropriate for ages seven years and up. The easy to use instructions and tutorials give you all the tools you need to become a video game developer with Bloxels. It’s a fun, creative way to become a 13-bit builder in a short amount of time and get your designs out there for an entire network of Bloxels builders to use on Bloxels Infinity Wall.
