Great and easy!

The only thing to consider is that certain characters can only do certain things. Overall, it's an enjoyable app!

Currently Not Working

For a few months now Kodu from both the app store and the downloadable exe file from Game Lab site fails to run any PC or laptop I have tried it on. As mentioned by other users the splash screen for the app appears then nothing. I run a tech lab for an afterschool program for youth and I have had a number of my students describe the same problems at home. As of yet none of the updates or suggestions offered on Kodu forums provide a real solution and we continue with an inoperable app. As I have thought about this it seems that the problem started in conjunction with the Windows 10 anniversary update. The last time I remember using Kodu was this past summer before the update was pushed out and have not been able to use it since I updated my systems after the start of the school year. So this is a heads up for those wanting to try this out as to what to expect and a shout out for all those who have had the same problem.

Should've been good

I've played this once before somewhere else, and it was great! Love the game! But on my surface pro it crashes a lot.

awsome

I like that it is simple but I think you need to give the option to make your own characters and I have a problem cause I cant use the arrow keys because it makes them keep going

the game that makes creatures

This game is really fun and it is cool that you can make new fairy tale creatures. Maybe it could be better with more options for this creature

Game Creating

So, I created a few games myself and I like it however, this is a very simple way It takes about 2 days to finish my games in 3drad or Hopscotch but this is the easiest way to program for new users try this!
