Build your own iOS game with Createrria, out this Thursday
Game-building physics sandbox Createrria is set to go live on the App Store this Thursday.
Developed by Incuvo, this ambitious project aims to make the act of creating games accessible to non-coders by providing a simple set of tools that are easy to understand and fun to use.
As you can see from the release trailer below, the app lets you summon and manipulate objects like platforms and power-ups, and generate enemies and obstacles, all with a series of taps. Then, once you've built your game, you simply activate it and start playing.
Having gone hands-on with Createrria, I can confirm that it is extremely easy to knock-up a basic platformer or Angry Birds-style physics-flinger within a few minutes. However, we'll be very interested to see how far the technology can be pushed, and whether it'll capture the imagination of iOS gamers the way LittleBigPlanet game creation tools did for the console crowd.
You'll be able to download Createrria for iPhone and iPad on Thursday. If the release trailer above piqued your interest, then we suggest you take a look at the longer gameplay trailer below.
