Building a Sandbox Style Game in Stencyl


  • Posts: 42
I love sandbox style games. While Stencyl is such a powerful game creation tool, i was hesitant about how I can actually make this work in Stencyl. It took a little bit of engineering, but I got this simple "ball in a box" sandbox mechanic to work.

What works so far:

-You can move in all directions
-Bounce off walls.
-Tweak Gravity, Speed, Dampening(Linear Velocity), and Jump Speed.
-Also added a feature where you can close and open the box.

This took me a few hours to make (including making the buttons/graphics). I attached the .swf of the game so you can play it in your browser or download and play it. I'm still learning and exploring what Stencyl can do. I want to see how far I can go with this. If you all are interested tell me if I should keep at this. I'd love to hear any feedback.
