Very good,:) but needs just a few more adjustments and fixes

I love this app! I've spent an entire week to make my first game, which is a game I can hardly beat! But their are some few problems I have experienced. VERY RARELY- some items do not show up when playing the game as opposed to putting them on the level map ( tho I could be doing something wrong) Also, when writing text, the writing space is blank (but the words do show up when playing), so I can't see what I'm writing and its easy to make errors.

Some suggestions also: a save feature for when I play my games completely so I don't need to start all over, some more music, bosses, and level types...I've always wanted to make my own games, and this app was worth the $2 to do so:)

Edit 8/9/15: I have noticed the game is acting weird, and it deleted 2 of my Saved games without me doing anything. I pressed save as, then save, but now 2 of my games r gone!....please fix this if possible.

Another thing, their is a glitch that causes the game to crash when a trigger hits lava ( I'm not sure about the others, but that's all:).

Easy Mario-esq game maker.

Sploder Arcade is a fun self contained 8bit-ish game creator. It's probably one of the easiest that I've seen on the App Store. It may not be as powerful, but it allows you to design themed games quickly. I would like to see more characters and world building content. The ability to create and customize characters would really be great to see.
