Creating a Gaming App is Easy as Pie
DIY app building platform Appy Pie has launched a cloud-based mobile game builder, enabling users to create a mobile game with no programming experience required.
The Game Builder has been available in beta since January, and has seen more than 500 games produced. The solution currently has six game templates to choose from, including Flappy Bird, fly and shoot, casino, tic-tac-toe, basketball and action. Plus, the company notes that more game types are slated to be released in the coming months.
Through Game Builder, users simply need to select their game type, name the game and customize it with characters, which can include personal photos or graphics. The games are pretty basic, however, users still have the ability to submit them to iTunes and Google Play. Plus, users can publish their games in the Appy Pie Game Arcade, test the games with developer testing links and monetize games using iAds and AdMob.
“Appie Pie’s driving mission is to make the entire app creation process effortless and enjoyable, where anyone can create a mobile app in 3 easy steps,” said Abhinav Girdhar, founder Appy Pie. "The public launch of Game Builder is an extension of that goal and we’re looking forward to seeing the plethora of mobile games generated on our Game Builder platform, the world’s first cloud-based mobile game creator with HTML5 technology.”
