Everybody EditsJohnBFrom Chris Benjaminsen of Nonoba and Player.IO comes Everybody Edits, a bare-bones platform game played on the backs of the very people who build it! In this charming retro-looking game, you are given basic tools to place blocks, lay gravity-altering objects, and craft mazes and traps of your own design. All of this happens in real-time, meaning you can move and build at the same time, all while people from around the world run around in your world!

Everybody Edits may look like a simple game, but it only sticks to simplicity for the sake of ease of use. Just like most platform games, you can run around a 2D world using the [WASD] or [arrow] keys and jump with the [spacebar]. Unlike most platform games, you use the mouse to select and place blocks chosen from the menu at the bottom. Want to build a staircase? Click a solid block, click the screen, and draw. No wonder all of the character avatars are big smiley faces!

Everybody Edits also gives you the power to mess with the physics of your world. Arrows act as localized gravity wells that push players in that direction, allowing you to bob up and down in mid-air or to create one-way passages to other sections of your world. You can even lay gravity-neutral spots that, in effect, create multi-directional ladders that can make your realm more like a top-down adventure than a platformer!

To top off the experience, you'll also find key blocks that activate when touched, coins, crowns, and a few other game-tweaking items. Nothing too serious, just a few things to spice up the platforming.

Everybody EditsAnalysis: Experiments in user-created content can go wildly wrong. With Everybody Edits, it happened to go wildly right. Similar to how Minecraft structures its building concepts, Everybody Edits allows anyone to hop in and add or subtract blocks from the level. You can craft a password-protected stage if you like, but the magic of silent collaboration that sometimes happens in open worlds is lost in these situations. Still, it's nice to see dedicated, well-created levels in a game so dependent upon its players for content.

As far as playing Everybody Edits goes, your experience depends entirely upon the user-made levels you check out. Some worlds will be rubbish, some will be amazing, while others will be just plain weird. You can copy the URL of any stage via the menu at the bottom of the screen, making it easy to save or share good levels you come across. Otherwise, it's up to luck! In general, protected worlds are a bit more worthwhile than open ones.

So, what's hanging around in Everybody Edits other than a bunch of smileys and user-created worlds? Customization. Microtransactions fuel the servers that host Everybody Edits, and for parting with bits of your cash, you'll unlock new avatars, more blocks, bigger, better worlds to edit and save, as well as a few other extras. Using actual cash is optional, though, as the game runs on both Energy and Gems, the former charging slowly over the course of time, the latter charging from your wallet. Both can be used to purchase any of the items listed above, so in this case, spending money only need be for the impatient. For these benefits, you also have to register.

The game as a whole doesn't project an air of refined polish, but the core underneath exhibits a lot of creativity and allows players to unleash their imaginations wild on the world in a simple, entertaining sort of way. Think of it as a simplified, 2D version of Minecraft and you've got a good handle on what to expect when you fire up Everybody Edits!

I can't tell who I am apart from everybody else, so it gets a bit impossible to track on busy levels.

I think it would be more fun if the controls weren't so twitchy.

And I rather agree with Neddo. Though that's ameliorated by a good level, I haven't found very many.

The only level I've played on so far is the (public to play, private to edit) "unlimited minigames" one. I only got about halfway through it (it's huge) before I stopped.

Looks fun, but the controls are terrible.

No thanks.

Why isn't the up key jump. That is all.

If I want to edit and move, I don't have a third hand to jump. And placing neutral gravity just to use up is dumb.

Wow, some of the set levels take more than an hour to complete - at least if your a beginner.
I've already spent more time than I should have on this game.

Also, check the mini map - it's very helpful for various reasons.

If the code is written on the map, you can sometimes see it on the mini map, if you look carefully.

i played that a while back. i played a level, intent on getting to the end. it was filled with all sorts of evil obstacles that would return you to a previous section. after a few hours i got stuck one one particularly merciless part. long story short, i accidentally broke my laptop out of rage. now i have a new laptop and im staying away from this game (not that it isn't fun).

Could I put my level for JIG up here or would that be link dropping?

off topic:

pmczjg wtf?

on topic:

it seems like it takes a year to make a good level. not because of the level itself, getting energy can take hours and just buying a level takes a long time not including the blocks you need. if your not a millionaire don't expect to have a level of your own...

I love Everybody Edits but it's really hard and I can;t get the portals to work properly. Also, how do you change the border of the levels??? I tried to do it and it didn't work.I've seen levels with glass brick borders and mine is just grey. :(

I use a shared account. I have all smilys available and all blocks too. It is hard to find one that isnt banned after about a week... but I found one that isnt. Heres the thing though, I posted in the forum that my sister was getting on and ruining my levels, and that I requested a change in password & email. They let it happen and now it is all mine for the taking. It also hasnt hurt since I found instructions to unlock moderater mode. My thanks to Linu554.

One more thing, If you have HeiCheat, You can configure the downloadable flash game to jump with the up arrow without any special knowledge needed.

Case. And. Point.
