Game Builder Garage

Critics Consensus (Play It)

Game Builder Garage is a satisfying, accessible and informative experience that makes programming games delightful. The game can feel frustratingly restrictive, however, and a lack of curation options and online features hamper the experience.

8/10

Game Builder Garage is a robust, yet easy to learn, game engine that’s absolutely delightful.

9/10

Game Builder Garage is typically brilliant Nintendo, offering a way of creating levels that is only stymied by the lack of online community and curation options.

70/100

The game excels at giving people a small taste of programming, but the game’s pupils will have to seek unabridged coding lessons elsewhere. It’s hard to give the game a final score in its current form, because what people design in free programming and post online will ultimately add to the game’s potential.
