Make the Most out of Bloxels!

 

Creating your own video game has never been easier with Bloxels. But thinking like a Game Designer can be a tricky task! Here are a few tips that can boost your game design skills with Bloxels! 

 

 

What's in a Level?

A level is a collection of small experiences, or challenges, that come together to create an overall grand and exciting experience. For example, jumping over a deadly pool of lava is a challenge, or encountering a dangerous monster. When building your room layouts, try to incorporate different challenges to keep the player on their toes!

1 Color, Many Uses

By adding art and animations to the blocks in your game, you can fine-tune how the blocks behaves! The blue block doesn't have to be water, it could be a portal or tractor beam that helps the player move a long way up or down! Red blocks could be more that just lava or an area the player cannot touch, animating a disappearing and reappearing spike or wall can give a tough and unique challenge to the player! Experiment with different art and animations for each block to make a truly unique and exciting game!

Tell a Story

The story blocks can be a powerful element in your game. They give your game rich personality and depth. Story blocks can give information to your player, guide them to the next room, or add to the environment of the game!
