    Game Development software for children

    Can anyone recommend some software that will allow children around 9 years old to make a game, preferably a 2D platform type game where you can import your own graphics etc... and then export it as Flash so anyone can play it???

    Help would be appreciated very much!

    No time to read up on it (so may not be suitable) but Kodu is in my list of "check when I have time" bookmarks.

    More details
    . Don't think it's quite what you are after, but may be worth a look.

    I've not tried it, but one of our IT teachers asked for this;

    YoYo Games

    If you're looking to deploy it in a school stick to version 7. Version 8 only likes to work with which ever account it was installed with.

    Thanks so much!! I've been having a look at Gamemaker and it looks great. I also came across Jumpcraft which is also really, really good.

    Thanks for your help!!
