Crash Course: Let's Make a Game! (Part 5)

by Jon (Updated on 2015-10-17)


Part 1 (Intro) - Part 2 (Resources) - Part 3 (Actors) - Part 4 (Create a Scene) - Part 5 (Test your Game)

Test Your Game! (Part 5 of 5)

Click the Test Game button in the top toolbar to give your game a try.

Test Game

You should be able to walk with the left and right arrow keys and jump with ā€œzā€.

Try pushing the Clown Actors around and jumping on them. If you fall off the screen, the Scene should reload.

Game, in action

Note: You can quickly test your game at any time using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-Enter (or Command-Enter on Mac).

Congratulations!

You've just created and tested your first game in Stencyl. That's quite an accomplishment already, and we've barely even scratched the surface of Stencyl's capabilities.

Where do I go from here?

There's a whole lot more to Stencyl, and we encourage you to experiment on your own and read through the rest of Stencylpedia to find out how to import your own resources, create your own Behaviors, and enable Stencyl to help you create the games of your dreams.

If you'd like a more in-depth guided tour, we recommend jumping straight into Crash Course 2, where you can create your own Space Invaders-like game.

Troubleshooting

When I fall into the pit, the scene doesn't reload.

As directed in Part 3 at the end of the Customizing Noni section, attach the Die in Pit and Reload Behavior to Noni.

Noni goes through the Clowns

Don't forget to set Clown's Group to Enemies.

I receive a Flash error when running the game. The screen is just white.

Please post a topic on the forums and attach the game to your post. (Use File > Export Game... to do this)

We have completely rewritten this Crash Course to make it clearer and followable from start to finish. In order to avoid confusion, we have cleared out the comments for the old crash course.
