Engine behind Color Switch powers Apple's favourites

Apple has featured more than 50 games made in codeless dev tool Buildbox

More than 50 games built using the code-free game engine Buildbox have now been featured on the App Store.

The drag-and-drop software, which powered the hit game Color Switch, allows anyone to develop a game without writing single line of code.

Currently, there is an average of three Buildbox games featured per month.

No time wasted

Such traction is particularly relevant given how quickly many of the games were developed.

The chart-topping Color Switch, for example, was conceptualised in 30 minutes and built in a week by just one man.

And the Ketchapp-published Bounce, the first game made using Buildbox to be featured by Apple, was also developed by a lone developer in just 10 days.

"This milestone is just the beginning!" says Buildbox PR and Social Media Manager Tiana Crump.

"We’re looking forward to seeing more of our customers’ games topping the charts in the months to come."

You can view a full list of Apple-featured, Buildbox-made games on the Buildbox website.
