Hello,

 

I purchased the full version of Buildbox. I'm having fun making games and whatnot but I've got two very major complaints.

 

First complaint would be that it says you could make multiple levels. That isn't necessarily true. You can only make a bunch of scenes that are all intertwined together. When will we actually be able to make separate levels, with separate backgrounds and a level select screen?

 

Second, I only plan on building to Android and possibly iOS. Why is the export process so difficult? I'm forced to download software that I know nothing about and go through all these steps just to make an APK file. Is this how it will always be, or will there be an easier way to create the APK in the (hopefully near) future? Such as with Corona SDK - you simply click Build for Android and voila - you have your APK. When I saw "export everywhere" I figured you can do so through the software itself.

 

Besides that and maybe a few minor complaints, the software is great.

I do not think this is a lie, though I could understand the frustration. We did levels in say Phases, used decoration objects for different backgrounds and whatnot. But separate level construction along with Level Select is planned for a future update and is in the Road Map. I cannot say exactly when because with the nature of this business things change very rapidly and timelines can change as a result. But it is planned.

The plan is to eventually have APK and IPA file export available, but for now the export processes do go through Eclipse and xCode for Android and iOS respectably. We do have guides on buildbox.com/guides as well as others in the Kajobi forums have posted guides and can help with the learning curve: See

Thanks for the kind words on the software, enjoy building!
