"You can replicate any old game with it."

January 19, 2010  |  By Gabees

 |  Version: IG Maker 1.0

Pros

This time, Enterbrain did a very good game builder for who is beginning in Game Development, you can learn how to do a game with IGM without any knowledge of a Programming Language like C#. This release come with 3 plugins, action rpg, jumping & shot

Cons

It's a lot hard to do another type of game different of that of the Plugins, like an Action RPG in isometric view. Repetitive work make it boring and some issues when tiling alway happen. The AI is terrible to programming with IGM.

Summary

I believe this software will become one of the best makers of Enterbrain. But they'll need to release more samples and much more resources, the spare resources to use with it can knock back curious and the templates what come with it's very junk, poor detailed and small, the HD sample is unusable too if you're thinking in really good templates.

So, if you're looking for an Game editor and you have your own graphic resources, you'll enjoy easy the IGM.

Needing help, pls, post a message for me in any of my Communities on the NET, like www.igmbrasil.com and rpgcrisis, I'm making resources and sometime some videos for free.

See ya.

"A Decent Effort from Enterbrain"

July 08, 2009  |  By derivian

 |  Version: IG Maker 1.0

Pros

Easy to make certain types of action games
Easy-to-use editor with lots of features
Can combine "plugins" within a single project to allow different types of maps within the same game

Cons

Only allows WAV audio
No scripting within the editor (have to export your game and continue from there, and cannot import it back)
Problems with 64-bit machines
Buggy installation
Exported files require an ACPlayer to be downloaded

Summary

Overall, this is a decent engine. You can make platformers, action RPG's, and shoot-em-ups with it, but it has a lot of problems. For one, packaging everything into a 1.31 GB download was a horrible idea. You can see my cons for other problems I have with the program. If you're willing to spend $90 to make a game easily, you may want to get this, but the gameplay options are rather limited. A previous review by "Ricky1007" mentions tutorials by Elemental Crisis. Keep in mind that Ricky1007 IS Elemental Crisis, so if you want to follow the word of a self promoter who won't even admit to it, be my guest. Personally, the help file answers pretty much any question you'd have with the program. It's very clear about how everything works.

"Allows you to make Shmups, Platformers and Action RPGs"

July 08, 2009  |  By Ricky1007

 |  Version: IG Maker 1.0

Pros

Ability to create Action RPGs, Shmups and platformers.
Exporting features (Flash, XNA Template).
12 sample games including 3 HD ones.

Cons

Super steep learning curve.

Summary

I've been using the Japanese version with an unofficial English patch so the switch is a little different, wording wise. There's a good AGM/IGM community that I got a lot of help from. This guy named Elemental Crisis has also written some really good tutorials that helped make learning the program really easy. I think this maker has a lot of potential, good job Enterbrain!
