NotesAccessibility Notes


I Wanna Maker is a 2D precision platformer based around creating and sharing levels online with other people, in the same vein as Super Mario Maker. If you like, you can just play levels, or just make levels, or both. The game generally requires precise timing and good skill at 2D platformers to navigate your character past spikes and moving obstacles.

You can filter online levels by difficulty, quality, date, and other metrics. For example, you can search for the best easy levels of the past week. Online levels are required to abide by rules including no inappropriate words or content, and no rapid flashing. Occasionally levels with these elements do appear, and take a short while to be removed by moderators.

The game has a text chat feature where you can see and chat with other players in the same level as you. On first startup, the game prompts you if you'd like to enable this feature or not. You can toggle this setting on/off in the options menu.

The level editor is very powerful, and is a great place to flex creative muscles and build either simple or complex levels. The level editor requires the use of mouse and keyboard. Though you can still test your level using a gamepad.
