    "Excellent!"

    April 12, 2013  |   By Dexter_TC

    Version: Multimedia Fusion 2 2.0 build 253

    Pros

    - Easy to use
    - Excellent forums for getting help
    - Great tutorials to learn from on the website

    Cons

    I can't think of any... maybe its not free is a con

    Summary

    The program is really cool and I was able to take my game and export it out to Flash, iOS and now Android.

    I love it!

    It was a little confusing to start with but once I followed a couple tutorials this is easy.

    "Crappy customer service taints an adequate product."

    January 30, 2013  |   By urDrive

    Version: Multimedia Fusion 2 2.0 build 253

    Pros

    I'm sure the product works fine, but I no longer care.

    Cons

    Unacceptable customer service has me looking for next best (hopefully better) competitor.

    Summary

    My 14 year old son received this product for Christmas several years ago. Since then, of course he lost the manual, and the unlock key, and of course did not register. Now needing to reinstall, he emailed for support, but after several email dialogs, and a phone call, the customer service rep flat out called him a liar, and accused him of trying to steal their product saying, "look, we both know you're trying to get the product for free...".

    I did not expect clickteam to provide anything for free.
    I understand under the circumstances there would be nothing the company could do to confirm prior ownership, and that alone would have been a sufficient message to highlight a valuable lesson.

    But to insult and accuse him of lying and attempting to steal the product is absolutely inexusable.

    "Like it!! S++"

    August 22, 2010  |   By Tany-1987

    Version: Multimedia Fusion 2 2 build 247

    Pros

    Runs fast, supports many file formats, equipped with necessary applications such as install creator and vitalize.
    It's not difficult but not that easy. Needs some effort.

    Cons

    The developer edition is quite pricey, although it's worth it...
    The program requires the CD to apply the updates, what a hassle.

    Summary

    I've been hearing such things like "it's not capable of making role playing games or whatsoever".
    But as of me, it can! Just use your LOGIC! ^_^

    "Thumbs Up"

    April 21, 2008  |   By monie_86

    Version: Multimedia Fusion 2 2 build 247

    Pros

    The basic Chocolate Break tutorial gives you a pretty good idea of the logic in the program.

    When you first get a hold of the different functions, its very easy to create games with several levels, etc

    A+++

    "Haven't Seen Much Better"

    November 12, 2006  |   By Ntharotep

    Version: Multimedia Fusion 2 1.5

    Pros

    I see a lot of reviews about how this is as bad as learning C++. It doesn't even come close (assuming that C++ is at least as hard as learning Visual Basic). Or maybe "hard" isn't the issue. It is far more time consuming IMO to use a basic programming language than to use MMF or TGF. It is missing things like mp3 capability and won't let you create the greatest games of our time, but starting from scratch it will likely take you years to create such games with C++ as well. I would say that this series is the "easiest" engine for creating games. I've tried several others from Dark Basic to 3d Game Maker and none of them are as simple to use as the Click Team's products. If there are easier game engines out there to use I'd certainly like to hear about them.

    The tutorial for MMF2 starts you out with a simple break out game and takes you step by step though it. I've created a few puzzle games rather easily with this software as well. Extension support for these products are also numerous and include things from mp3 support to Save Game functionality.

    Cons

    MMF2 hasn't added much from its predecessor. Still no MP3 support as far as I can tell, not sure about the save game function. I can't really say that the newest edition "wowed" me beyond what already existed. It looks like they just gave it a slightly different lay out.

    Finding extensions aren't hard (assuming that mmf2 is backwards compatible) but creating extensions required programming. Object values were limited (don't know if this has changed in mmf2 or not). It isn't an interface to create powerful graphic based applications such as a 3d game. For that, good 'ol know-how and either Maya or other 3d application software is certainly the best.

    "Great, powerful and easy to use"

    January 27, 2006  |   By neewah

    Version: Multimedia Fusion 2 1.5

    Pros

    It's powerful and versatile - you can make practically any 2d game just clicking a mouse and using the powerful events editor to 'program' your game, without any knowledge of scripting at all and also you can add / make extensions to give your games / programs even more flexiblity and professionalism

    Cons

    A few minor bugs in the level editor need to be fixed, but there are workarounds in most cases with ingame bugs

    "MMF is an excellent application."

    October 31, 2005  |   By KingLo0oza

    Version: Multimedia Fusion 2 1.5

    Pros

    I have used Clickteam programs for atleast 6 years, and I've probably used all of them at some time, from Klik & Play to Jamagic. Multimedia Fusion, Klik&Play and The Games Factory are a series of WYSIWYG Dev programes. The most recent is Multimedia Fusion and with it you can create applications, slideshows, animations, pictures and games. On it's own MMF is fairly weak at all of these but it all works very well together and it's very fast and surprisingly flexable thanks to the hundreds of extensions on the clickteam website. You can download an extension or write them yourself in VisualC++, and basically link it all together with the MMF event editors.

    Basically Multimedia Fusion gets as complicated as you want it to be, so creating a game could take anytime between 2 hours to several months depending how much control you want to have.

    If you want to make commercial quality programs you could produce anything PopCap games could, and almost any kind of windows application!

    Cons

    The problem is Multimedia Fusion isn't really designed to do a lot of the stuff people use it for, so it's sometimes messy and buggy. MMF is still using the same code from K&P and it really needs to be re-written now. The biggest fault is that some of the most basic things you can do with programing like having loops within loops are not available unless you use extensions, so you will either have to work around it's limmitations or get the extensions for the job. You also won't be able to make modern 3D games, the most advanced 3D extension available is OpenGL.

    MMF2 is coming out Christmas 2005 (hopefully) and this promisses to iron out the most frustrating problems in MMF1.5 but be even more flexable and expandable.

    I also highly recomend Jamagic.
