We’re excited to announce the official release of Buildbox 2.2.8.
In this latest Buildbox update we have 3 new gameplay presets: Basketball, Jump Tower and Swipe Board. These new presets allow you to create different sports inspired games and fun action packed titles as well. The sky is literally the only limit here.
Our new Basketball preset enables users to make traditional or non-traditional basketball style themed games. You can use this option to make your own basketball endless arcade games or even a paper toss style game.
It’s also possible to create other unique themed ball games with this preset by using different types of balls, objects or even characters. With Buildbox’s easily integrated counter feature you can make your game as simple or challenging as you wish. The popular wall jumping and tower games, which seem to never go out of style can be made easily using our new Jump Tower preset as well. A great example of the type of game that you can make with this preset is our game called Wall Switch which was published by Ketchapp.
These new presets are a lot of fun to play around with.
Another really innovative gameplay style, that we’re thrilled to be including in this latest update is the Swipe Board preset. With this preset option you can create an interactive dodge type of game. Using Swipe Board you can make dodge avoidance based games with movement similar to Traffic Rush. This gameplay preset enables players to avoid incoming obstacles by swiping in multiple directions.
You can really get imaginative with this preset by adding various themes from cars and bouncing balls to aliens and more.
Each of the gameplay presets included in Buildbox automatically change all of the character settings and physics properties in your game. This advanced setting feature makes it easy to quickly create a prototype of your game.
All of the advertising SDKs have also been updated in this new release including HeyZap, AdMob and Chartboost for iOS. Buildbox 2.2.8 now supports Xcode 8 as well.
