List of basic tutorials


The sprite manager

In this tutorial we show you how to manage the image editor and have control over our texture packages at each level.


The room settings

In this tutorial I will show you the settings of the development environment. You can configure the bases of your game by configuring physics, size, speed and free graphics memory in addition to several options that we will see below …


The parenting system

In this tutorial we show you how to match objects, with the relatives system we can inherit attributes from our level editor.


The layer system

La gestión de capas es muy útil para crear nuevas experiencias en tu proyecto. Desde efectos visuales hasta mecánicas de juego.
