Developer FAQ

1. What do I need to run the kit? 
2D Toolkit v2+ and NGUI Pro v3.5+ are required. Unity 5's new uGUI features are not as developed as NGUI or 2D Toolkit to build the entire kit. NGUI v3.5+ is still required. The NGUI free version is <3.5 and will not work. 


2. Does this game kit support attack and defense like Clash of Clans? 
We have another Kit called the Mobile Strategy Game Kit includes attack and defense, plus server side scripts necessary for managing player villages. We will be submitting to Chupamobile in April 2015. 

3. Can I reskin everything in the kit? 
Yes. You'll receive the complete source code after buying. Add/remove your own features and scripts. Nothing is locked in DLLs and you can access all the code needed to create a functional prototype. 

4. What devices does the game run on? 
The kit runs on all devices - Android, Apple iOS phones, PC or Mac, or the Unity web applet. Plus, the game is optimized for mobile with the touch controls


Feedback from Testers

Richard "Levelord" Gray 
I've played with others, but this one is the best! It's definitely more than a mere "start-up" kit as it already has 90% of a game foundation in the kit. It is easy-to-use and intuitively designed. I highly recommend this kit for anyone considering making a city building game! 
Update: In less than a day, I am comfortable with most of the pipelines to add my own buildings and characters (graphics and behaviors/parameters), and I have modified menus, buttons and various GUI interfaces. This is a great kit! 

Ronime Studios 
If you are looking to make a city building game, this is the kit for you. Everything works [straight] out of the box, and I have spent a good amount of time playing around with the default buildings/units. Awesome kit, I can't suggest this enough!


Includes Royalty-Free Building Art

The kit comes preconfigured with demo magic battle theme buildings so you can prototype your reskin even quicker than a puzzle or card game template.
