There is no mobile version of Scratch, but this is close to being one. I really loved it! EDIT: Might need to add some "tap and hold" bricks. Platformers are nigh impossible to make without them, as well as color and object collisions. EDIT 2: Scratch is now available on mobile devices, but it's tablet-only at the moment. EDIT 3: Fixed some errors and reworded some sentences. Also, most of the features I mentioned were added in and then some. Cool beans!

Dear Jonathan, Thanks! Yes, we also would like to have these features, the sooner the better :-P and are actually already working on all of them. Some of them might even be in one of the next releases as they are ready and only need to be integrated, such as physics style collisions. Kind Regards, Wolfgang

This app is amazing!!!, it really brings out the creative side of slot of people including me, as someone who is a great drawer, and an animator, I had always wanted to make my art interactive. EDIT: still great even after the update, there is this one thing that happen, not sure if you guys took it out or if it's a bug, but the place visually function won't work, everytine i press on it it won't let me place visualy, and so I just wanted to say that on hopes you can guys fix it

This is great. I spent lots of time looking for a decent game engine, but could find none. But when I found this, it was exactly what I wanted. Unlike all other apps I could find at the time, this one lets you make whatever type of 2d game you want, and program it your way. The only thing I think is missing, however, is a video player, or something that could play GIFs or videos. Maybe a block that says "Play video for (_) seconds with/out audio." And then you just upload a video. Still great!
