  • Summary: Over three years in development FPS Creator sets a new benchmark in the game creation market by providing an easy-to-use yet highly flexible editing environment. As its name implies this is a tool for creating action-packed FPS games with no programming or 3D modelling knowledge required. Using an intuitive and visual Windows interface you literally paint your game world into the scene. A vast range of 3D elements are included allowing you to paint hallways, corridors, gantries, walls, doors, access tunnels, ceilings, lifts, transporters, ladders and more. Segments intelligently attach themselves to each other - paint two corridor pieces side-by-side and they'll snap together seamlessly. Switch to 3D mode and you drop in on your scene for pixel perfect placement of 3D entities. Place a light-switch on the wall and it'll intelligently control the dynamic lighting in the room. Expand

  1. From creating title and menu screens, scripted even zones, Overall, FPS Creator is a fantastic must-have purchase for anyone who’s interested in what goes into making a game.
  2. Casual fans of the genre may want to think twice about the work that will be needed to create a game.
  3. Don't get me wrong though, even though the end product is useless, creating your own game is fantastic fun - just don't expect to become the next Carmack. If you want to do that, start learning binary now. [PC Zone]
  4. Good lord! This game wasn't created, it was excreted... Basically, you'd have more fun putting starved ferrets in a feedbag and strapping it to your crotch. [Jan 2006, p.46]

    Overall, this game is OK. It does give you full control over layout and enemies, power ups, lighting and everything for a game, but there are downsides to this even though its not terrible. The AI isn't that good, if a you're in another room and walk past the door to another room containing enemies (doesn't matter which enemy, built in or from an add-on pack) they will be waiting for you on either side of the door, or if there's one enemy then one side of the door. Also, my last complaint is that on some computers if you are using an Administrator user, and come out of testing the game it crashes. But overall, its a simple and fun game using a drag-and-drop engine but making professional results. I suggest you buy it. Expand

    Its OK, not as good as Unity but functional and fun. Glitches are unavoidable, and graphics (which I don't care about but whatever) are meh, but games are fun and the Model Packs allow new and different games. Everything can be made but don't expect to create the new Half Life or something. Fun to mess around and create games for friends, but if you want to make a complex shooter go for Unity. Expand
