How I Use It
I use this software in my computer classes and for demonstrations in geometry for logic. There are great tutorials to create games and the software is well supported. You do need to download and install the software and have enough administrative rights to write to registry keys.
My Take
The kids went home and worked on this for months! It was a great stepping stone to get them interested in computer programming and game design.
