*** Children's Technology Review Editor's Choice ***

Infinite Arcade is a game construction kit. It’s the fourth app in Tinybop’s Digital Toys series which includes the iPad App of the Year, The Robot Factory. Digital Toys apps are designed to let kids create anything they can imagine.

MAKE YOUR OWN GAMES
Start quickly with a classic game to build on. Or invent your own! Create levels with terrain blocks, obstacles, hazards, enemies, and more. Make your game small or massive with lethal boundaries or magic passageways. Control gravity to make characters walk or float. You decide how many lives they get.

CREATE OR CHOOSE YOUR CHARACTER
Create your own ninja or ball. Pick character colors or add a photo and special effects. Or choose one of six unique characters or balls: Chompers, Jellyclops, Inky Brains, and more! Each has their own skills, strengths, and weaknesses. Be wise with your choices.

TELL STORIES
Add words and thought bubbles to tell a story. Post signs, clues, and secret messages to help your character out. Add all kinds of sound effects: laughs, boos, cheers, and farts! Write your own messages for the end of the game: Super bummer if you lose. You are the champion if you win!

PLAY YOUR OWN GAMES
Let the gaming begin! Can you play as well as you make? Now’s the time to see. Run on a travelator, jump over hot lava, swim through water, and find the victory portal. Attack zombies, evil snails, and electromagnetic cats. Collect all the gold coins and glittery skulls. Is your game too easy? Go back and make it harder. Set the high score record!

SHARE & SAVE ALL YOUR GAMES
You have your own video game showroom. Stockpile all your games, give them names, pass them over to a friend to play.

FEATURES:
+ FREE gamer guide with tips and hints. Download The Infinite Arcade Technical Manual in your app or at tinybop.com.
+ Original artwork by Roza Gazarian, Holly Graham, and Jeanelle Petrillo.

+ Open-ended construction kit with no rules. Curiosity is rewarded.

Editors’ Notes

We’ve played so many games that we feel like we could create our own—and now we can, all without coding classes or complex tutorials. With this ingenious educational app, it's easy to become a designer. Imagination rules as you build characters, worlds, and stories for one-of-a-kind games meant to be saved, shared, and—of course—played.

Mr. buttler ,

I love it, but about the update...

I LOVE this game. It was amazing, and I had a million projects, but when it it an update, ALL my progress went away, and I was in the middle of one I worked really hard on, so i was very disappointed. I still love the game, and don’t get my wrong. The update is very cool, but I would appreciate it if you could possibly spend some time to make sure this doesn’t happen to other customers.

Developer Response ,

Oh no!! We're so sorry to hear that. Your games and creations should have saved over in the new update! Could you please email us with some additional information so that we can figure out what might have happened? You can reach us at support@tinybop.com. Please make sure you did not delete the app, any users, or accidentally create a new user with a blank profile. Thanks!

Infinite frustration

It’s like someone put 0 effort into this. First off, you can’t “create” your own games, you just work with the tools presented to you to design basic levels, so the title lies to you.
Second, you can’t even create levels because the basic mechanics are mildly frustrating at best. When you tap on a surface to place a block, the block almost never gets placed where you want it to go, and erasing+placing is a really annoying experience. The controls for most of the characters are TERRIBLE, but not like you are going to play any fan-made levels anyway, because most of the ones in the so-called “hall of games”, are just filler created by the producers.
The menu system is also awful, if you play a level it automatically goes to the top of the selection so it is really hard to keep track of levels since they are always moving around on the menu.
But the worst offender IMO is the fact that the text bubbles straight-up DO NOT WORK. there is a absurdly low text limit on all of them, and if the filler text is too long you straight-up cannot use that variation of text bubble. When one of your key items is broken your know you have a problem.
Terribly sorry if i offended any producers, but this hot-garbage excuse for a mobile level editor has really got me steamed.
Do not reccomend to anyone who likes to have a useable app.
