The best kwik app of 2016

Beastly Crusader is the best kwik app of 2016 on Kwiksher's showcase. I do honor to Peakman, EpicPuzzle https://epicpuzzle.wordpress.com/ Beastly Crusader http://kwiksher.com/portfolios/beastly-crusader/ Language Support: English, Japanese, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, French, Korean; He shows various techniques to make amazing animation effects for his adventurous visual novel. It takes hours to read all the pages with beautiful graphics and you can study how he excerpted the core power of Kwik and Corona SDK for interactive visualizations. P.S. He recently released Santa Music Box. X'mas passed but not too late to check his free app. http://kwiksher.com/portfolios/santa-music-box/ Best regards, yamamoto
