Most probably, yes. 001 Game Creator is not limited to specific genres and has been used to create a wide variety of different types of games. From Action-RPGs, to Space Shooters, Tower Defense, Puzzle games, Card games, Platformers, you name it! Not all of these genres have pre-built templates available but that doesn't mean that you can't create them!

How can I make my character go from one map to another?

Create a new "Zone". There are options in the window that comes up to relocate the player when the player touches it.

Can I get feature X?
