Game Maker


Status: No Download, Findability: 2/5

Not strictly a game as such (Although the screenshot you will see depicts a sample game that has been created) – Mr Pixel’s Game Maker is a rather obscure title which seems to have been lost in the midsts of time. A different package from the Activision release of the same name, little is known about Mindscape’s own creation tool.

The advert for the game states:

"Create your own arcade games using if-then statements for rules and adding predrawn or original characters and backgrounds. This program is part of the Mr. Pixel series, so backgrounds from Mr. Pixel’s Programming Paint Set and characters from Mr. Pixel’s Cartoon Kit can be incorporated into games. Game Maker is a creative learning tool that develops logical thinking skills while children play. Available on Apple, Commodore, IBM."

It seems possible that this package got into problems because Activision had a similiar package and got it patented, who knows?… It’s early days, but check out the scans and shots and start wondering if we can find this intriguing package someday…

Could it have made quality games?…
