    Throughout my journey of attempting to make games on buildbox, I've come to find that because of the bugs and limitations, I found myself constantly stressed looking for ways to create my game idea around buildbox's structure.

    It's fun at times when things are going smoothly, but then you run into another limitation that won't let you do something like you thought you'd be able to and have to look for an alternative.

    I really like buildbox, but man, this is driving me insane. 5 years in and it still has yet to become the codeless game making giant it has advertised itself to be since 2014.

    Limitation of creativity can drive creativity. But in some instances it just sucks and is frustrating as frack.

    BB2 is a really good software. BB3 is a major disappointment.
    BB2=Fun
    BB3=No Fun at All

    Totally fair, and would love to know why. I'm guessing lack of 2D and components, would that be close? If so, then we're on the right track... if not I want to make sure we solve it.

    BB3 is more fun to me! You basically are not restricted and can go crazy with your ideas, buuuuuuuuut everybody has their own opinions.

    BB3 comes without limitation with a different learning curve. We can think N number of possibilities our imagination is only a limit, BB2 has a limitation, but it is fun to build a specific style game. In the future, I am expecting, Multiplayer and Augmented reality game features build by Buildbox Platform in the upcoming future.

    For me and the past several versions of bb3 it’s been pure fun. Nothing was broke for me. No road blocks etc. of course earlier betas was bug filled...kind of the point of early versions lol. But I don’t run into issues now. And I’ve spent enough time with bb3 that I flow through it easily. So all I’m left with is figuring out how to use what I got to achieve x function. That’s my favorite part of BB personally. Figuring out how to do this new thing or make x type of game that no one else has yet. I love bb2 but bb3 is just all around more fun to create in.
