TNT Basic

1.31 for
Mac

Develop games with this easy-to-use kit.

TNT Basic allows anyone, regardless of previous experience, to make games for the Mac. Its amazingly easy to use development environment allows you to compose all your game's graphics, sounds, music and code with simplicity and ease.

"But I Can't Program!": I suppose this is where you expect us to say "You don't need to - you just click a few buttons and your game's ready!". Sorry, but not with TNT Basic. Games produced with such "click and play" creator kits are extremely limited in their functionality, there are after all only so many different games you can make by clicking a few buttons. Games produced by such tools tend to all have the same look and feel. You'll never create anything special with your hands tied and we want you to create something unique and special. TNT Basic gives you complete freedom to create, and it's so easy to use, that you'll wonder why anyone would use underpowered point and click game creation interfaces in the first place. You Can Program! In TNT Basic you write in a simplified beginners' programming language called basic. It's incredibly easy to learn and TNT Basic's on-line help system will assist you all the way from your first steps to your finished game. Check out our Learn To Program Tutorials, you'll be coding in no time!
