Nice wiki, forum, sample games, tutorials.

I REALLY recommand GDevelop to start creating your own Web or native (Windows, Linux) 2D games!

I started using GDevelop in 2011! And year after year, it is improving!

Great piece of software, Really!

Pros:

Simple, reliable, fast platform to develop 2D games.

Great software, nice community !

Cons:

There is really nice wiki... For me documentation could be a little bit better though...

Thanks for your review Damien! Nice to see that GDevelop is useful 😃I do plan to improve the documentation, I think we can get something nice by having links to examples included in it too!

Easy to use, plenty of examples, and a knowledgeable community makes for a great experience. Support is second to none and the developer is very responsive and the product is updated frequently.

Pros:

Fast prototyping, produce games without code, like construct, but open source and free :)

Cons:

Complex games are difficult to make

Hey Pete, thanks for the review! 👍 It's indeed always a challenge to properly manage the growing complexity when making a large game. I do have a few ideas to make it easier to handle (search tools, smart profilers or hints...) 😉

I have used the GDevelop for several years now and I can warmly recommend GD to all who are interested in making games. It really is simple and very easy to approach!

My GDevelop game project: https://gamejolt.com/games/tundm...

Pros:

Simple, Easy to use, Logical, Free, Perfect 2D game maker

Cons:

There are not many games to show the greatness of the Gdevelop, Sometimes it takes a lot of work to get feedback or answers from the forum

Hey Jukka, your game looks awesome! Is it ok if I take a screenshot (or send me your favorite one) to add it to the games showcase (http://gdevelop-app.com/games-sh...)? Good job! 😊
Slow and not weak. Terrible workflow. Very unreliable. Useful for learning purposes only.
