Game Builder Garage review: Nintendo’s game builder is impressive but limited

If you're new to programming and want to see what it takes to make a game, this is a wonderful and humorous introduction. It does have limitations, though, and mastering its intricacies can take a long time.

  • 10 hours of entertaining tutorials serve as a great intro to programming
  • The 85 tools can be combined in surprisingly complex ways
  • There's already a growing community sharing tutorials and creations
  • Lessons sometimes skim by steps without explaining them properly
  • Lateral thinking is often needed to bring some ideas to life
