Build and Beat is a challenging old-school 2-D platformer currently being developed for the PC. The player is tasked at building levels and then trying to beat them. As the player plays more he will be able to unlock more enemies, powerups, levels and obstacles. The game is planned to have six worlds with separate themes. Build and Beat is compatible with the Xbox 360 controller and also supports custom music. Alpha stage is currently open and a download is available.

Build and Beat is not just a creation tool for creating your own levels, it is also a homage to many 2d platforming genres. World 1 was designed as a gimic based 2d platformer. Meaning you need a special ability to make it from A to B and the gameplay revolves around platforming and platforming alone.

World 2 is a homage to the 2d shooting platformers. World 2 will revolve around unlocking new powerups that improve your gun(think Contra), and shooting your way through enemies that shoot back. Also, World 2 will have a unique boss at the end of every level. Build and Beat is literally going to be many games in one with the only real consistenty being the creation aspect. It should be quite an undertaking. As World 2 comes together I will post more news with more pictures and videos in the future.
