8/10
Seth G. Macy (IGN)

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

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.

Shannon Liao (Washington Post)

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.
