I don't consider myself an artist or an experienced programmer but I have created over 200 educational applications, games, screen savers and utility programs with this and other programs made by Clickteam. It's so easy to use and once you are familiar with the way it works, you can produce programs in hours that would take weeks to code. There is no coding/programming involved, just drag and drop and then deciding what actions you want to happen. The only obstacle is your imagination. Clickteam have an excellent forum where you can get real help. The graphics and sounds supplied are of very high quality. The icing on the cake is that with Clickteam's new swf exporter add on, you can now export your games made with this software into Flash games ready to add to the web. They even include a simple way to monetize your games by adding advertising from a hugely popular games advertising agency.

Now you can produce online Flash games at a tiny fraction of the cost of buying and learning Flash itself.

More of an upgrade than a sequel.

Although they have not changed much from the original Game Factory the changes they have made are absolute vital. For example being able to have unlimited animations for one object being the most useful in my opinion. But this still has a lot of the same flaws as the original. Platform movement is still awful and you will end up having to create your own engine if you want your games to be taken seriously. Also most of the animations and backdrops that you get free are the same as TGF1 so they did not even bother to change that. I was expecting so much more from this product which I have been waiting well over 10 years for. However that's not to say it's not any good because despite its flaws it's still an awesome and more importantly fun bit of software to have. The programming is not as easy as it makes out but it's still a lot easier to get your head around than coding.

To summarize it's hard to say whether this is worth buying. For anyone who has never used the original Games Factory I would suggest you download that for free first because its almost identical to the untrained eye but if your like me and you are a prolific game maker wannabe who preferred The Games Factory 1 over Multimedia Fusion and other game creating software out there you just have to have it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but There's an Alternative... 24 Dec. 2007
By Rita - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This product is great for beginning game developers. I would say 90% of the activities that one carries out in this softwared are "Drag-n-Drop". There are plenty of tutorials that are easy to follow.

However, if you are an experienced game designer, or are totally enthusiastic toward game design/development, then you might prefer investigating a less expensive alternative, yet one that may prove to be more flexible... "Game Maker".

The "Game Maker" software follows the same drag-n-drop philosopy, but also incorporates the use of a scripting language if you find the need for this. The basic software is free with unlimited use. In addition, upgrading to the Pro edition, from the free, is only $20.00! You might want to give this software a try before you purchase TGF, at $50+ dollars.

5.0 out of 5 stars A stupendous piece of software 15 April 2007
By SeeBodyOoks - Published on Amazon.com
My four-year-old son has tired of mere level editors in video games. He asked me how to make his own games from scratch. There's no way a four-year-old is going to learn Java or C#, so I downloaded ClickTeam's Games Factory 2. He has created five simple games already.

It's all dragging and dropping. There are no file handles, IO streams, inheritance, polymorphism, or other other sophisticated programming concepts. In fact, there's really not any scripting, just clicking.

The level of sophistication you can create is on par with the average Intellivision or Atari 2600 game. However, the graphics can be high resolution and in full color. You can import WAV files for audio. It has options for creating multiplayer games, connecting to the Internet, saving high scores, and many other extras.

You could easily recreate your favorite 2D games: Rootbeer Tapper, 1942, Donkey Kong, etc. My son created an original game where you traverse mazes, collect cheese, and battle giant skulls. You're not going to use Game Factory to write the next installment of Halo, but you can certainly have a blast. It's way more creative and engaging than just playing video games.

One thing that could be improved is the documentation. The instructions are good, but not flawless. Sometimes we had to figure a feature out by trial and error when the manual was not clear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent tutorial 9 Feb. 2009
By Mark Annett - Published on Amazon.com
I started with the free demo and I was able to create a basic "breakout" game in about an hour. I then spent the rest of the day modifying it so that it utilized pictures from a database that I sell. When I was done, I bought the full version and in a matter of a few minutes I had a game that I could give away to my customers and I uploaded it to my wed site.

This game is the most effective marketing tool I have and it was less than $65 with shipping. My customers could not be happier!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Options - A little Quirky 12 Jun. 2011
By David - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I had to get this for a Virtual Games class in college so I explored medium-level activities of the software. If you have programming background and understand logic well, you shoudl have a leg up in making some impressive introductory games. If you check out the independent games in XBOX Live Arcade, you will see what types of things you can expect to build, with some practice of course. I found the ease in which you could build and interact with the contect very good and would highly recommend it for someone looking to get a first look at what game building would be like as a profession. Once you can master this, you are well on your way to understanding game development so give it a try if any of this sounds good to you.

OK, I said it was a little quirky. To really get into detail with some complex movements and interactions, you will find that it doesn't always give you the precision you may want and thus you have to take it with a grain of salt. Also, there is not a ton of help content so you will need to review the tutorials others have provided on the site to really ramp up your skills.
