Hi folks! Boston Game Jams is proud to announce the release of the Akihabara Level Editor and Sharer, or ALES (pronounced “Alice”). It’s an HTML5 tile-based level editor for an Akihabara-based platformer that lets you play while you edit and share your levels with your friends.
Try playing some levels we made. Collect all the stars in each level!
- Demo 1 – The Basics. Interact with every basic block and enemy type.
- Demo 2 – The Clock is Ticking. It’s a race against time, and you have to push a #$%@ heavy block.
- Demo 3 – Right Stomp, Right Time. A short puzzle. Figure out how to chain the explosions to clear a path to the star.
Click the “make more levels like this one” link in each of those pages to edit the level. Or just dive right in to the editor!
If you’re impressed with this tool and want to help make more stuff like it (or improve on ALES itself), consider attending the HTML Tools Jam, January 8th and 9th. It’ll be held in the Boston area, but anyone with an internet connection can participate.
