LevelCreator description


LevelCreator is ideal for making levels for the iPhone or anything else you can think of. Create levels by dragging assets, transforming them, and arranging them on the screen. You can add special properties to specific assets, such as physics information or your own personal keys and values that can later be parsed and interpreted by your game.

The physics information stored can be used with Box2D or any other physics engine you choose. LevelCreator simply stores the values for you to use how you please. The levels are stored in a dictionary Plist file format and is very easy to parse and interpret the contents.

LevelCreator loads individual images and doesn't depend on spritesheets when creating levels. However, since LevelCreator stores the name of assets, you can easily let your game load the assets using spritesheets.

Since LevelCreator stores the name of the asset, theres no extra work to enable retina support. Just ensure that you are using the non-HD images when creating the level and your game will append the -hd images if available.

Visit the support link for code examples on how to parse the level and for a complete list of Hot-Keys and further examples.
