"Real good and simple for beginners."
Very easy for my son to use and teaching some real good beginner skills.
Didn't want to work at first but we worked through it,he has an older computer.
Looks and runs pretty good for 2d game making,but if one is looking for higher end 3d game making software you can visit http://www.rpgmakerdownload.com for an all in one gaming solution.
