The Karnak Games Gideros SVG Level Builder lets you easily build levels for games which use the Gideros Mobile SDK.

Gideros SVG Level Builder is a set of libraries to be used in a Gideros game that allows you to create Gideros physics based games, levels and maps by just drawing in the free and open source vector drawing Inkscape. Everything you draw in Inkscape is automatically converted into Gideros physics bodies and sprites.

It supports drawing ellipses and rectangles in Inkscape tool. Then you can set physical properties and attributes (density, friction, etc) and image/animations attributes direct into Inkscape, without ever programming them. It supports all Gideros physics properties.

With it you only have to program the game logic itself. You won’t have to worry about element placement and positioning, which can be very time consuming when done by hand.

What kinds of games can you make with it?

With Gideros SVG Level Builder you can create and edit Gideros physics based games and levels by just drawing in Inkscape and then setting physics properties with the built in Inkscape XML editor. Gideros SVG Level Builder allows you to create very simple levels with just a few elements to very complex levels with lots of animations, attributes and elements (example: an Incredible Machine like game). After you develop your main game logic, you can edit and update your game elements and attributes without touching the Lua source code!

Drag and drop level and physics editor.

Examples of games that can be created:

  1. Platformers.
  2. Top view racing games.
  3. Labyrinths and mazes.
  4. Slingshot based games.
  5. Infinite running and jumping games.
  6. Randomized games.

Basically: any physics based game and level based game.
