Level Up Builder Gen2

Welcome to Level Up Builder Gen2!

This is a free online tool that you can use to create your very own role playing games based off of the in-development Level Up 2 engine by Ape Apps, LLC. This tool and associated engine are being built to support the upcoming game Level Up 2 - The Tower of Jupiter, but they are also being made free and public for anyone who wishes to dive in to the newest game engine.

When you are ready to export your game and distribute/share it with others, select the Compile Game option from the file menu. Players can launch your game file using the free Level Up Player. The player is a free progressive web app that can be installed on any system (or run from within the browser directly). When installed as a PWA, it will allow users to easily launch your game by simply downloading and then double-clicking on the game file. Players can also use the app to manage their own library of Level Up based games.

Level Up Builder Gen2 is provided as-is with no instructions or warranty, but should be fairly easy to figure out. If you have questions or issues, you can visit the Ape Apps Forums and post your questions there.
