  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. Making Games Tutorial on GameSalad

    I had just made my first game in a few minutes. Thanks to this tutorial, I can now start to make my own 2D games using GameSalad. It was pretty helpful to me, and I would like to thank you guys for giving me this opportunity to see this tutorial. It was a great starter’s guide for me to use!

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. For a beginner class this was clear and easy to follow along. A nice first impression for GameSald Academy.

  9. Very good and clear introductory course for beginner like me. Thanks
