About The Infinite Arcade by Tinybop

The Infinite Arcade by Tinybop is a video-game-design app. Kids can create, play, and modify their own arcade-style games. If they want someone else to play the game they designed, kids must share the device. As in many other Tinybop apps, kids are given the freedom to figure things out for themselves, though there are more parent-friendly instructions in several languages. Kids and adults alike can create their own games in The Infinite Arcade by Tinybop. More than simple arcade fun, this game creator is a powerful learning tool because kids define problems, develop possible solutions, test the game, and then come back to make improvements.

"Infinite Arcade makes it dead simple to make your own video games." — WIRED

Infinite Arcade is a game construction kit. It’s the fourth app in Tinybop’s Digital Toys series which includes the iPad App of the Year, The Robot Factory. Digital Toys apps are designed to let kids create anything they can imagine.

Start quickly with a classic game to build on. Or invent your own! Create levels with terrain blocks, obstacles, hazards, enemies, and more. Make your game small or massive with lethal boundaries or magic passageways. Control gravity to make characters walk or float. You decide how many lives they get.

Create your own ninja or ball. Pick character colors or add a photo and special effects. Or choose one of six unique characters or balls: Chompers, Jellyclops, Inky Brains, and more! Each has their own skills, strengths, and weaknesses. Be wise with your choices.

Add words and thought bubbles to tell a story. Post signs, clues, and secret messages to help your character out. Add all kinds of sound effects: laughs, boos, cheers, and farts! Write your own messages for the end of the game: Super bummer if you lose. You are the champion if you win!

Let the gaming begin! Can you play as well as you make? Now’s the time to see. Run on a travelator, jump over hot lava, swim through water, and find the victory portal. Attack zombies, evil snails, and electromagnetic cats. Collect all the gold coins and glittery skulls. Is your game too easy? Go back and make it harder. Set the high score record!

You have your own video game showroom. Stockpile all your games, give them names, pass them over to a friend to play.
