GameMaker wasn't released for the A8 :(
You can add Jawbreaker Construction Set, Pole Position Race Designer and Saper to the list, though.

Don't forget EA's Music Construction Set! Not really a game, but very easy & powerful if you're into music at all.

Lords of Conquest let you make your own maps, as did Ogre. Don't know if you'd count those though..

Activision made one, but methinks it was just for the C-63. Chris ++ Knows about this title.

ProBiker (a game released in 1989/1990 for the XL/XE) has a design track option...

Maybe MOLECULE MAN, too (at least in PC conversion there is a special editor!). :)

Yes, Molecule Man , released on tape for the ATARI XL/XE has the editor.I have the original tape versions for ATARI XL and Commodore C16/+4 .

Was the Wargame Construction Set by SSI available for the XL (I know it for the ST , itīs a strategy game construction set.).

Iīve also found some Public Domain games and type-in games with construction kits.

Bill Budge did the Atari version, my wife and I met him and got an autographed copy of the game when it first came out. We were at computer shop in Los Angeles for the release. Really nice guy, he told us all about porting the game between the three systems.

Sidewinder (disc version) comes to my mind. Not really a construction kit, but you could edit background character sets.

I don't recall the proper name of it but Stuart Smith (who authored Ali Baba and Heracles) did a construction kit for making games like that.

People metioned SEUCK in this thread. Shoot Em Up Construction Kit (SEUCK) appeared for Amiga and I found the games made from it to be really horrible. SEUCK seemed to channel people into a certain type of game (the vertical scroller) and the performance of the games was just poor IMO.

I would be interested which, of the construction sets we have already listed, generated binaries that were freely releasable and required no runtime libraries or original disks to run. Anyone?
