App of the Day: Sketch Nation Studio

This free app lets you make your very own games for iOS — no coding required.

Welcome to CNET Australia's App of the Day, where you can see some of the coolest, silliest and most useful apps in action.

Sketch Nation Studio is, no joke, seriously one of the most awesome apps we've seen for all ages. It's an app for making games, and you can make five different kinds: jumping (a la Doodle Jump), side-scrolling runner, side-scrolling flyer, downward bouncer or side-scrolling bouncer. What you do is: draw your character, draw your elements, draw your background and — et voila! You have made a game. There are a few different modes, from simple to super advanced, but no coding is ever required — and, when you're done, you can either share the app via the Sketch Nation sharing feature, or you can even upload it to the iTunes App Store to try to make a few bucks.
