Introducing GameMaker’s Match 3 Puzzle Game Template


Satisfy your sweet tooth with GameMaker’s latest puzzle game template: Match 3! Line up the matching donuts to rack up the points and reach the target score before you run out of moves.

The Match 3 template takes its cues from the iconic puzzle franchise, Candy Crush - and let’s face it, if you want to learn how to make a puzzle game, there aren’t many better games to learn from. Candy Crush has been downloaded over 2.7 billion times, so they know the secret sauce.

The Match 3 template is another exciting starting point for new GameMaker users, and can be created in both GML Visual and GML Code. When you open the Match 3 project in GameMaker, all the resources you need to create the game will be available for you instantly.

Ready to get started? You donut have to wait any longer - head to the IDE and make your first puzzle game today!

(Alright, the donut pun was bad, but the template’s a banger. Enjoy!)

Happy GameMaking!
