OverviewOverview

Fancade is a collection of simple games played on smartphones. It offers simple running, jumping, puzzle, shooting challenges depicted with simple pixel visuals. Like Roblox, these offer simple versions of other commercial games. Unlike Roblox, these are offline games and with super simple controls.

You can follow a Quest that takes you through a series of little games, slowly unlocking more to play as you progress. In the Arcade area you can browse all the games made by the wider community. There are new games added each day and the best can be found in the Popular and Featured sections on Android or via the Daily Suggestions on iOS.

Some popular games have been:
  • Bombard - Like Getting Over It.
  • Drive Mad - Stop-Go real physics driving challenges.
  • Roper - Platform running, swinging one button game.
  • Gobble - Like Donughnut County
  • Recoil - One button shooting game.
  • Longcat - Logic snake game.
  • Stacktris - Like Tricky Towers, Tetris balancing game.
  • Tiny Track - One button 3D racing game.

When (or if) you are ready you can start making your own games using very simple drag-n-drop building blocks. This lets you create game scenes as well as adding logic and interactions like pressing buttons.

This is a great collection of games for people wanting to dip their toe in the world of video games. It's also a good way to try out different game genres before investing more time and money in bigger experiences.
