Mappy (PC + Mac)

This is a mini-review of a favorite tool for tilemapping.

This is a great tilemapping/leveleditor program with the ability to export for DirectX, Allegro, OpenGL, Java, Java, CDX, SDL, SDL, Delphi, Blitz Basic, Blitz Basic, Blitz Max, GBA, Combined, GameMaker, GL Basic, and XNA. You can layout rectangular, hex, or isometric tiles with ease.

Tip: Use Lua to script out how you’d like your maps to output. They can look like anything! (ex Map1=[0,0,0,”dog”,1,0,0,0,0,0])
