  1. Great Course!

    Really help me get my bearings round the program.

  2. Good, But not complete

    The course was helpful, but it ends with and unfinished game and an instructor telling you, “Ok next we are going to…”

  3. Amazing

    Best Session Ever
    Really Helps to get your head around the Program and is Ideal to start app development.

  4. Very Helpful

    Very Helpful Course, would recommend it to any newbies like myself haha !!

  5. Special thanks

    Thank you game salad, and thank you Lawrence from goodnight games :))

  6. much thanks

    session was very helpful in basic introduction to game salad thanks..!!

  7. Very insightful.

    Instructor made mistakes which was very helpful to learn how to fix those mistakes. Made the tutorial easy enough for anyone to understand the basics.

  8. Good. . .But. . .

    This course needs WAY more content and a pack of the assets would be nice so people can really follow through.

  9. Great Introduction

    Very enjoyable newbies guide to getting started. Made me feel great at the end when I had a functioning (albeit very simple) game πŸ™‚

  10. Great Intro To The Game Salad Software

    I enjoyed learning about the basics of the software with this tutorial. The instructions were very clear, and easy to follow along. Now I feel more confident looking at the other components in the behaviors menu to see how I can make something from scratch and hopefully have it published. It contains good advice, and shortcuts to change sounds and reset scenes. Usually I get bogged down trying to find assets for every little sound effect in games, which can take a whole day. Now my time searching will be greatly reduced with a shift of pitch! Thanks for put this this together.

  11. Your First Game Tutorial: Perfect!

    This is such a good tutorial for newcomers like many of us. It is a perfect walkthrough that explains things greatly.

  12. Nice starting material

    Congrats, it is very usefull for a first contact moment!

  13. I like it.

    It was Short, Sweet and Direct. It doesn’t bombard you with too much information but it does go over everything on the need to know basis which is quite good for a game creator. Thank you.

  14. Excellent - with several hiccups

    This course was very helpful for me in getting started with GameSalad. I really appreciate the time the author put into it!

    Here are several things that could have been mentioned.

    1) At first, I thought my keyboard commands were not working to control the actor. After trying many things, I finally realized that you have to click in the game area for key presses to register.

    2) At the end of the course, there are still several problems with the game logic. When the player dies, the Change Level Portal does not go away, so it stays visible. Also, the gem count doesn’t reset. This may have been by design, but personally I feel that if the player dies they should be required to pick up the gems again before heading to the next level. It took me a while, but I eventually figured out a way to have the portal disappear when the player dies. I added a rule to the portal that says “if Gem Count is <=2, then destroy this actor". Changing the gem count attribute to 0 when the player dies is easy.

    I really appreciate this course, especially the sounds and graphics provided that made it easy and fun to create a beginner game.

    Thanks again!

  36. Nice and Wonderful

    Simple Nice and Wonderful. Game Salad is always good for simple games. But I want to know if can I make a game like Pet Pat and more deeper games using game salad. I doubt the depth of the software and the complexity it can deliver.

  51. Awesome!

    Their was a step missed to explain. I dont know if I was the Only one but, It was the Second to last video. It didnt explain to reset the count after player collide with Lava then explosion would show for player after getting a gem or 2. So for mine After I collected all Gems then Collide with Lava. The Count didnt Reset. I figured it out on my own. Just putting that out there. Everything else was Really Awesome. Thanks For the Video!!!!!!

  66. Everythig Worked!

    Looks like its worth the money.

  67. Great Basics

    Lawrence gives a nice run through for anyone starting out. Best of all, he makes a few mistakes and proceeds to fix them, showing that things don’t always go right, but more importantly, if something isn’t going right, its because you didn’t tell the computer in a coherent way how to achieve the goal you had in mind. Thanks Lawrence.

  68. A good way to begin using gamesalad

  69. Awesome tutorial, but...

    Amazing tutorial for beginners, however, I experienced a problem. As soon as I picked up a gem, the game Music stopped playng, and I didn’t have the option to Select/unselect “Play to end” or whatever it said. Maybe I’m using the wrong file format?

    Thanks for the tutorial thought, it was great! πŸ˜€


  70. nice!

    For a complete beginner, I feel like I’m on the verge of something great!

  74. Great explanation but a bit background noise

    You did a great job with the explanation, and also not going too quick. But sometimes it was hard to hear what you said, because of the background noise. But very good tutorial πŸ™‚

  75. Some minor errors but overall a very good start to learning how to use GameSalad.

  76. Really cool. Definitely helped me get off the ground quickly. Great intro.

  77. Excellent Intro

    I much prefer this tutorial than to others I’ve taken for Game Salad. This time I really feel like I’ve learned something tangible I can use while I followed along with the tutorial in Game Salad. Very nicely done!

  78. Very concise and helpful. Perfect starting point for beginners

  79. Very Helpful

    Many thanks for the tutorial, extremely helpful in getting to know the basics of Game Salad.
    As with all of these tutorials it always feels like you need to run through them a few times until those basic steps become second nature.

  80. Thanks for the intro!


  81. Really Helpful Tutorial for Beginners!

    Really cool program and shows just how robust it can be!

  82. Very easy to follow

    Thanks for this great tutorial!

  86. Excellent tutorial! Very comprehensible. I can’t wait to start working on some games. Thank You so much for your help!

  87. Perfect for a total amateur like myself.

    I know nothing about making computer games. This was perfect. I was amused when he kept saying how we wanted certain things to “fire first” and I was taken back to my days of playing Magic The Gathering when abilities would trigger or “fire first”. Good times.

    This course was exciting to go through. Thank you!

  88. Game salad

    Excellent introduction to game salad

  89. Excellent tutorial, good pace & explanation.

  90. Nice job!

    Pretty much everything I’d want in a beginners tutorial like this

  91. first great

    its great now I know, how do this

  92. Very detailed and accurate. Very well done!

  93. Really helps

    I would have been completely lost if it wasn’t for this course. Really helpful!!

  94. It was really helpful but at times a bit hard to follow.

    This course was easy to follow for a beginner and helped me to understand the program in a short period of time

  96. NIce Start to GameSalad programming and logic

    As an instructor for new students (Middle school) and Gamesalad programming/logic, this is a great start for beginners.

  97. short easy constrictive !

    covering wide range of simple things, making a small game from A to Z in less than an hour.
    very recommended for beginners.

  98. Great

    Solid information, very easy to understand.

  99. Very good.

    it was great beginning for me. Thank you.

  100. Buggy Software...

    Was working fine and suddenly any changes I made just didn’t work. I turned off rules (e.g. player death) but it kept doing the same thing and ignoring my changes.
    Would appreciate a reply and I’m hoping I have done something wrong to stop any changes happening. I’ve purchased the pro version but can’t make games if bugs happen during a tutorial, let alone during my creations.

  101. Very Nice

    I like the way that this course is presented. Maybe I missed something, but the counter didn’t reset upon death after gem grab. However, there was enough information given to be able to figure it out on my own. I really like this program. For beginners it is awesome.

  102. LOVE THIS

    This is better than most tutorials when it comes to making games cause in other sites they are just boring and this actually has proof of the people actually messing up instead of sounding as if they did it in one go with no mistakes.

  103. Easy and Helpful

    So easy and helpful , I like it Thanks πŸ™‚

  104. Amazing

    I love this it is perfect now I can create funny ballerina werewolf games!

    Great Great Tutorial. Well done.

  107. Very Informative

    You don’t create much of a game in this tutorial but it teaches you the valuable basics of how to use the software. I feel very comfortable using GameSalad now.

  108. hummm..... i like

    info so the sentences can be more clear.

  109. This was a clearly presented, informative tutorial. Thanks!

  110. Good

  121. Excellent Introduction

    Short, Simple, and covers the basics on how to use the program. Two thumbs up!

  122. Thank You!

    This was awesome for a digital immigrant. As a kinesthetic learner it usually harder to just sit and learn. I really appreciated how all aspects were broken up and even the voice kept attention.
    Nice job!

  123. Great Course!

    It was fast paced, but I never felt lost.

  124. Very Good

    Excellent tutorial for an absolute beginner like myself

  128. Great Course, but 1 Problem

    This was a great course that taught us a lot about how to start making games in GameSalad. The only problem was that it did not include instructions for how to reset the counter if the Player died. Fortunately though, we were able to figure this out due to the other instructions we received in the course. Thx!

  129. Shows off gamesalad

    Good introduction to gameSalad

  130. Game Salad

    it is so fun to be on the end

  131. Nice introduction to GS!

    Thanks for the tutorial, helped me get to grips with the basics of GS. Only flaw I could find was that the gem count does not reset when the player dies and it resets scene? Will have to have a look into it – thanks anyway!

  132. Brilliant

    Helps speed up the learning process πŸ™‚

  133. A must for beginners

  148. Thanks but little confusing

    I loved it and thanks, but with so much on making/creating a game, its a little confusing.

  149. Mind Blown!!

    Now only if I were an artist…..

  150. By the end I was yelling your errors out as you made them…. which means you taught me well. Maybe how to fix common errors in the next version? Like that horrible border?

  158. Great Beginner Tutorial

    Simple, easy to follow, and covered all the basics you need to know to get started.

  159. Very Helpful

    From these five videos, I got the “foundation” of game making down. Lawrence explains each concept in his videos in detail that I can understand.

  160. Great "Starting of" tutorial.

    This was a very in depth tutorial, I liked how there were mistake and you showed us how to correct them.
    After this tutorial I feel I still have a ways to go in learning how to use this program, but I feel I have learned a lot in a small space of time.

    Thanks for the great tutorial, I hope to see more like it.

  161. Excellent

    Excellent course to begin using GameSalad, looking forward for the next courses πŸ™‚

  165. Starting

    Thank you pretty good and easy)

  166. Awsome

    This course taught me al ot thank you very much for making everything easy to comprehend!

  167. pretty good

    i like the part about reusing sounds. I found a bug though that i fixed pretty easy. He never killed himself after gaining one, two, or three gems. If you do the counter doesnt reset. So I put a change attribute under the kill player method to just set the score to 0 again.

  168. Very Good place to start

    If you have no idea where to begin, this is a very good place to get your feet wet. The game by the end of it sucks, but the concepts that you take away are what matters. It also is a good little confidence boost.

  169. Really Helpful! In just a few Minutes i was making my “Player” Move around. Strongly enjoyable and easy to learn. I wish to get a Tutorial where explain every Behaviors. Thanks!

  170. Troy's Revew

    Idiot proof guide, which is lucky, because I felt like an idiot the moment I looked at the project window. Feeling much smarter now!

  172. Very Easy to understand

    It did not take long to know what was being instructed. There were many examples of problems solving, and displayed easy steps.
    What a relief.
    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  173. really helpful

    Exactly what I needed to get started.

  174. Solid Tutorial

    Very clear and easy to follow only problem was that it was difficult to find all the pictures and sounds, as an improvement if you could add a file with a selection of images and wav files it would be appreciated. Thank you.

  175. for those who starts their career in games

    very easy to make games by using game salad. i really like this software. And if you are a beginner then you should use this game salad software.

  176. NIce explanation

    Not to slow not to fast. Fits my style of learning perfect ! Thank you.

  177. Great course.

    Very great walk through. Superb teaching. Enjoyed it tremendously.

  178. Good.

    Easy to understand and to the point.
    Unfortunatley not what I was looking for, as it didn’t coverhe basic of the type of game I want to create, but good none the less.

  179. Good Tutorial, Okay Engine

    I’m not a huge fan of Gamesalad Engine but the tutorial was very informative.

  180. Good Tutorial

    He didn’t show how to reset the score after the player dies, but I figured out and it isn’t hard.

  181. Nice intro

    Good tips and good job explaining things. I would be aware of your audience however. Most of us are probably beginners. Slow down in your presentation. Also, if something doesn’t work right, that’s fine as long as you explain in more detail why the error occurred. There was a couple of times where something didn’t work as planned and you didn’t really go into why. Great job otherwise.

  182. Great jumping off point!

    A great tutorial for just starting out with Game Salad!

  183. I'm so excited!!!

    Great advice for making games mixed in with a great tutorial on how to use the software.

  184. Great Introduction to GameSalad

    Excellent! A nice intro to the product. Very basic, but gave me a good idea of what I think it will be like to use GameSalad.


    This tutorial has helped me very much now I can make a splendid game just like you!!!!

  186. Very Usefull

    You will learn how to very basics. And, programming without tutorial is hard. Cool!

  187. Awesome!

    Simple to do, repeat & understand.
    Thank you very much for this course.

  188. Amazing!

    I really helped me out! Looks complex but kind of simple.

  192. Nice demo

    Great instructor. Easy to get a hang of the major concepts.


  193. Good

    Great tutorial, wish there was an option to enlarge, but not fullscreen the video. The small window made it hard to see what he was doing without fullscreening it and having to switch between gamesalad, and my browser.

  194. Clear and On Point

    Not only does he explain what do do, he also explains what *not* to do, and some alternative methods to have the same/more streamlined effect.

  216. Awesome !!! Liked it !!!

    So many attribute covered makes you love the software………

  217. it was okay

    this course was very informative and easy to understand but it lost my attention at certain points

  218. It's a good tutorial

    This tutorial is great and Is learnig the basics of GameSalad!

  219. Easy

    This was a straight forward tutorial and it helped get the basics down

  220. Great first game!

    What a great tutorial for beginners or advanced users. Well explained and even shows what to do when presented with mistakes.

  221. awesome!

    Great instructions to build a great foundation in building apps , glad you showed the basics!

  222. Helped a lot for starting

    Yes this was really funny and now I have my first GS game πŸ™‚

  223. Useful

    I’m a beginner and I find all of the things he said useful and essential.

  224. my first game

    let’s change the word

  225. video explanation

    hard to read but good narration

  226. Pretty cool!

    Totally makes sense and it doesn’t overwhelm you too much. It seems kinda easy, but I don’t think I’ll memorize it any time soon!

  227. Great

    Takes you through everything you need to know to get started in a clear and informative way.

  228. Nice one mate

    Super easy to learn.

  229. Liked It

    Nice and simple.Could be a little more organized and detailed.

  230. Cool Introduction

    This was a nice introduction into how Gamesalad works. Have done programming before so it was nice to see it still works in a similar function with no knowledge of coding required.

    Follow carefully what he is doing because you might get lost at some points so going over each part is required to see the point.

    Cool video.

  231. Absolutely Shit!

    Hard to understand, it has blurry quality and it’s hard t understand, its not for beginners!

  232. 10 out of 10

    Very helpful in learning how to use the system and start to creating games!

  233. super gun

    kill sniper…and get there gun and win the batle

  234. Quite informative and thorough. Thanks.

  235. Going Through Portal

    This is a good course, but going through the portal did not make a sound even when I did it correctly, and pitch of a sound cannot go lower than 1.

  236. Outstandinf

    From a complete noob to game developing, this course was exactly what i was looking for! thank you so much for taking the time and effort to create this :_)

  237. Great Course to help jump start your creations

    This was a fun and quick lesson, recommend highly for new novice users. Easiest if you have 2 screens to work along with, I didn’t but wasn’t a big deal.

  238. Great Tutorial

    Very easy tutorial… thank you

  239. great i understand now!

    great now I know hw to make a video game for mobile devices!

  240. Very Helpful for Beginners

    Simple to understand for beginners

  241. Great!

    taught the basics! Thanks!

  242. Great Course

    Was very helpful, one thing is missing I think to make the game complete (Or I may have not picked it up, although I did implement it into my version): when you die, the score should be reset. Great guide otherwise, I know he made some mistakes but I think it was fine since he ends up figuring out where he went wrong

  243. Awesome!

    Easy to follow. I recommend the course for beginners.

  244. Objective

    Simple, straight to the point, awesome.

  245. Good bases

    While having previous experience with Gamesalad, this course helped me refresh my memories and skill withing the application. It’s a very good start for creating a simple game and learning attributes.

    This is not an advanced guide where people that seek explanation of all the attributes, no this is just a simple cover of the very basics of how to create your very own first game. And it is very well done.

  246. Easy to follow

    Good simple guide to get you started.

  247. NIce program. I am very happy to do this!

  248. I think that in the creating levels sections, you should add an explenation to how reset de the gem count if the player dies. Otherwise the player dies and count stay the same.

  249. I think that in the creating levels sections, you should add an explenation to how reset de the gem count if the player dies. Otherwise the player dies and count stay the same. Everything else is perfect!

  250. This course helped me learn so much about gamesalad and making games in general!


  252. Really helpful for me as a first time user on this program. Thanks!

  253. Great tutorial course on the basics of GameSalad. Very educational and easy to understand, step-by-step instructions. A few more Tutorials and I will hopefully be ready to buy this amazing program.

  254. Very clear and informative πŸ™‚

  255. That was really fun and nice since I am VERY inexperienced with gamesalad.

  256. It helped me so much and thank you wery wery much πŸ™‚

  257. Choose the name of the project and it platforme
    If you don’t say the computer to do anything nothing will happen
    the level change need a “game function”
    make the game with color and sound will give him a cool view
    always try the game because without trying you can’t know how his it
    Thank you.

  258. The tutorial course was a very good introduction to the program interface. Thank you.

  259. Great course. I could see what we can make with GameSalad

  260. I’ve meant to do this. But it’s actually pretty good. Makes me want to change it up for my OWN use for this kind of video game!

  261. Mighty Darn Good! I just have to learn how to get some enemies in my game and transfer this into an android game and I’ve got a monster hit on my hands!

  262. This really helped me make my professional game. Thanks to this, i won game of the year award 7 years in a row

  263. OMG this helped so much it is amazing 5 stars from me!! πŸ™‚

  264. very good but the instructor forgot to add a set gem count to zero attribute to game functions next to “spawn spawn in portal when gem count reaches three”. Please correct that everyone if you did not notice.Otherwise if you for example collect two gems and die, then, when the scene resets,the gem count will still stay the same and if you collect two more,the game functions will show 4 instead of 2.Other than that its probably the easiest walk through I’ve watched.

  265. Helpful for beginners to GameSalad.

  266. I enjoyed this tutorial, so informative. I’m going to take more tutorials. And I believe I’m going to enjoy using game salad to develop my games so much…

  267. Great tutorial and exercise to get started with Game Salad. I am really looking forward to developing games.
    Thank you for giving me the basic key information,
    Thank you,

  268. this helped me out a lot!!! THANKS!!!

  269. Really helpfull much to understanding this programm.

  270. Well done Lawrence! Great tutorial to get me started. My son has been using game salad for a few weeks and I wanted to get the hang of it to help him and also do my own project. Thanks!

  271. Its a nice course for beginners and i do recommend it.

  272. Very well taught. Thanks a bunch for the great tutorial and taking the time to explain some of the basics as we worked. Excited to see what’s in store for me!

  273. Nice, bite-sized pieces make it easy to understand the steps without being overwhelming. Great instructor. Explains things clearly and logically. Illustrating the reuse of game assets and tweaking attributes to protect system resources was smart. Lawrence does a good job of stepping through concepts methodically, and not introducing more advanced tips too soon. Really well done. Just enough game theory to make it easy to understand the basic interplay between behaviours and sounds without dragging you down in semantics. Really well done.

  274. Nice and simple way to learn the basics πŸ™‚

  275. this was so cool.. thank you!
    you made my day.

  276. Certainly a great “jumping off” point for using GameSalad, as long as you’re willing to stop the video/restart video/rewatch video for the duration of the project. Several times the explanations left out something relatively important about where an object should be placed or “under what heading” something could be found. As an instructor, these gaps would set a classroom of students on their head, so it’ s important to be able to know what those are before asking students to try this.

  277. I was able to follow the course video tutorials easily. Well planned and executed.

  278. there is the problem…while reset after the death, the no. of diamond does not get resets. how can i do that..???

  279. very helpful, can you do one for Mac as well?

  280. This was a nice straight forward tutorial.

  281. it was okay , but ill learn more along the way.

  282. I love these tutorials it’s very informative!

  283. An excellent starting point for learning this application. The instructor kept things simple, and his presentation was appropriately enthusiastic. Definitely made me want to continue with the learning process.

  284. that you have to program to start what you want to do because the computer not smart if you dont tell it to do something

  285. thank you i real enjoying doing this

  286. Awesome course for beginners like myself. Video quality could be a lot better but it’s good none the less. Nice explanations and ways to do things along the way. Thank you for this!

  287. Gave me a good feel of the program thank you and keep up the good work!

  288. Nice, you really helped me.

  289. A nice way to start this engine.
    a very nice teaching way
    thankyou so much πŸ™‚

  290. The quality of the video is lame, I canΒ΄t see what’s going on, I wasn’t able to make the damn square even being in landscape

  291. Really great course! Lawrence does very well in showing how to make your first basic game, while explaining the mechanics of how to use the game salad creator. For someone like me who has no experience with game creation or programming, but plenty with other creators (such as image manipulation/photoshop and various movie-making programs), I felt at home watching him go through the tutorial step by step. But even if I wasn’t already used to what a creator interface looks like, it’s laid out to be highly user-friendly, and he takes the time to explain things as you go without skipping the important details.

  292. Absolutely brilliant. What a great game engine. And great step by step tutorials to match. I can see I’ve found myself a new addiction here….

  293. This games has 6 levels and the goal of the game is to get 3 gems and make it to the portal, without touching the lava. Each level gets harder and harder GOOD LUCK!! : )

  294. stops working after fourth one, starts doing seizures

  295. Great easy to follow tutorial, definitely provided me with a basic understanding of how to use this program.

  296. very easy to learn, however it leaves the game feeling uncompleted. The Score keeps going up even when the player dies, the music doesnt loop throughout the game and restarts with every death/level change.
    A good start though and helped me understand the basics of the program.

  297. My Super Mario Bros. Games Will Be The Coolest Games Ever Made On This Here Website! πŸ™‚

  298. Informative.
    Great introduction…
