Top-Down vs Platformer Game Engine

Choose your game type

With Bloxels, you can choose to build a side-scrolling platformer, or a top-down game from the bird's eye view. Which is right for your game? It's up to you.

Top-down games are often settings for worlds to explore and sprawling adventures, but they can also be action-packed. Platformers usually focus on skill and timing to progress, but they can also tell big stories through their locations, secret items, and more.

When you create a new game, you choose your game's type. You can also change this in the game's settings at any time.
