Date of Launch

April 29th 2011


The Physics Puzzle Maker is a 2D sandbox-themed game creator on Sploder. It is the fourth one so far. Music was added in, and then 8-bit graphics. This led to the creation of the Graphics Editor, which you can create still or moving graphics (now added with the Platformer Creator Beta).


Prefabs and the Drawing Tool

Prefabs are prebuilt objects created by Geoff. Prefabs. The Prefabs contain: Player, Spikes, Baddie, Platform, LifeBlock, Ship, Key-door, Balloon. These are just some of the Prefabs.

Colliding, PassThru and Sensor

Each of the Collision, PassThru and Sensor layers have 5 different blocks to tick.

All prefab blocks have a Collision Level, which means that they can collide with each other. The five blocks for this category inclube the numbers 0, 1, 2, 3 and 4.

PassThru Levels means that they go through each other, so they don't collide. The five blocks in this category are A, B, C, D and E.

Sensor Layers are what make objects activate other objects. These five blocks are symbols, the Club, Diamond, Heart and Spade (obviously resembling playing cards) and the final one a flower.

Trivia

  • This is the most popular creator on sploder.

Prefabs, Physics, Controls and Widgets
