With easy-to-use tools and props making a game has never been easier; there are even tutorials if you need. But it’s not only about making games: you can play thousands of levels created by other builders and if you want to share them, simply send the unique URL to your friends for them to jump in and start playing straight away… that’s right, they don’t even need to register, the game is playable in the browser, and is free-to-play.

It’s easy to find a great game to play with the Trending, Most Played, Most Liked and Recently Published categories.
