I thought it was going to be just a good way to start a tileset and then I'd have to retouch everything to fix it, but if you're thoughtful in your approach you can get fully usable tilesets without all the hassle.

Application is currently being tested... I will update this review as the application is being developed.

REVIEW UPDATED FOR: 1.5.1

This review was slightly modified after speaking with the developer. It has been modified to showcase the support and the desire to make the application better which in my eyes is very admirable. However, my review will remain accurate in the applications usage.

If you are the type of person that values legitimate reviews I would strongly suggest reading my review. I also recommend that you be careful of other "reviews" as some of them just tell you what the developer tells you. My review is based on usage only and I will not regurgitate what you see on the store or home page(s).

I purchased this for usage with Game Maker Studio (Master Collection). If you to are a developer that wants to use this with Game Maker as well, I recommend you to read this.


*** PROS ***

- Simple to use, not many options.

- Very quick and easy way to make tileable, seamless tilesets

- Outstanding support from the developer. Being a single one man team, he was very quick to reply to my review. Not only that, he is more than willing to work with the community to make this application better. Furthermore, I'm glad I made the original review to not recommend this as I believe it has made a difference in it's development. Not only for me to use personally, but to increase the value for other users purchasing it as well.


*** CONS ***

- No proper "save as" feature, looks like it just overwrites the previous tileset you made previously. I will requesting a proper save as feature as it is somewhat of a standard feature of any application.

- Tileset that is exported is NOT GAME MAKER FRIENDLY as it doesn't create the tile cushion that is required for GM tilesets. This becomes an issue while changing screen resolutions and creating ports of your game (black boarders around your tiles in-game).

- Price is to high, I would not recommend paying more than $9.99-$14.99 for this.

- Tileset export is still somewhat mashed together, not sure what parts go where. This will be better explained in the documentation soon according to the developer.

- There's is suppose to be some sort of AutoTileSet Plugin or something of that nature for Game Maker but I can't seem to find it if it exists. I will ask the developer about this.

Although there are short comings that still remain in this aplication as of version 1.5.1, I can now recommend it. Mainly due to the fact that version 1.5 was the launch version and the developer quickly (in a single day) fixed about 50% of the problems that was in my original review.

Great job on the update. I can't wait for future updates

I purchased this to help make my life easier when making level art.

I use the Open Source "Tiled" editor to make levels which I then use in games using LibGDX, and from early testing this seems to work very well. Making the production of tiles for a level an absolute doddle. (im a programmer, not an artist so that a pretty big deal). Its allowing me to make my own tile sets instead of using ones I download or pay for from other sources, which in my eyes is priceless.

Its still actively being developed by a developer who is very active on these forums. I have sent and received multiple messages to and from them and in all of them they have been very open and accepting of ideas that could improve the product.

So, I recommend this to anyone who wants to make the process of making tiles that much easier. And even more to those who are willing to give constructive feedback.

Pros:
This tool works well for quickly generating tile sets.
Tilesets are fairly adjustable by only changing a few options with the application.

Cons:
When using AutoTileSet Plugin with Unity the tiles that it drops cause a massive amount of extra compilation time.
When using AutoTileSet Plugin with Unity if you accidentally click on any sprite it will instantly destroy the object.
No viable method of generating "Floor" sprites and using them with AutoTileSet Plugin in Unity.
Application feels kind of sluggish while actually using it.
GUI elements all feel a bit off.

Useful to help generate tilesets to be used in 2D Unity games, I simply can't make these on my own. This application and Unity plugin allow me to create a good looking 2d environment in minuites.

I've done a full video review and testing of this product with Unity, available at: http://youtu.be/YIr-hsIh8WM
