Also I've been in some talks today about Sandbox and discussion about a web based version of Sandbox was brought up. I think it is in an interesting idea and a lot of the work is already done. Kripken is a friend of the project and he already did this:
If I can figure out how to fund myself I think Sandbox might be getting a revival in a big way!

I am thinking of placing a thin "skybox" on either side of the level. Just so the player wont "fall" off the platform... lol (just a thought...)
Hmm... I had completely forgotten about the "schools" part of the game... Not a problem. Will modify completion based on objects found or something like that...
The last "big" project I did was a recreation of the old Wolfenstein 3D. Did not know how to import textures, so it was made with what was in the library, which made it look plain and boring. Not the library! Just the lack of original scenery made the game "ordinary"... I need more coffee...

Also I came across this today, I had it under the "old releases" section:
I've also found that Sandbox plays really nicely with Blender. I'm interested in using it to create scenes for animations. My 2nd Graders went crazy when I made this little animation for them:
I even opened up the .blend file and showed them how it worked and even took some requests for other animations to have him make. Neat stuff. If you are interested in testing a Sandbox scene in blender, you make an .obj in Sandbox by typing /writeobj I recommend starting with something smaller.
I hope you are having a great day and I'm becoming really inspired to work on SB again

"share screens of your levels"? Still a concept at the moment. Pencil sketch and a rough 2D graphical layout. Bare bones at that... But it might be a smidgen big... May have to scale it down for "level 1"
(Start on the left; Finish on the right)
Lifts, treasures, bad guys and hazards have not been added yet... the player's ability to jump in PAS will determine the "height" of the level. I think this is going to take a while... Scripting is going to be a challenge. Apart from the Wiki, can you recommend video and or pdf material?
I think I will need a LOT of coffee for this one... lol

Also if your Grandson likes Minecraft, you might want to show him D.'s Sandbox. I'm not sure if I included a Linux binary but I could send one over. It's rather dated compared to the version I'm working on but you should be able to do quite a bit with the citybuilder game type. My students have lots of lava fun especially with the mod "cityscape" enabled.
I hope you have a great night and please feel free to share screens of your levels!

For the moment, PAS runs, and runs quite well... My 10 year old grandson wanted me to make him a Mario Brothers games using PAS... but it has to have LOTS of lava. He enjoys players falling into lava. Kids... Interesting concept. Platforms are basic rectangles. Ladders can be replaced by elevators. Plenty of treasures and badguys... I may have to do a crash-course in scripting... Just in case... Sounds like fun...
I digress. Many thanks for your assist so far. Best of luck with the 'app store people'
My caffeine levels are too low... Must 'recharge' 'before' building games... lol

It is also in the Ubuntu Software Center if you search sandboxgamemaker

As far as i know, the actual client version is "1202|c04", but some players join with "1202|1e40 " or another value after the 1202|
Note: I think it was either version 2.6.1 or 2.7.1 that used to be included in Ubuntu's repository. But, for some reason, it was dropped. Unfortunate, as it was so much easier to install... I might even try finding the installation file... who knows, it may still work...
Another note: I also tried to execute 'sandbox' using it full address from a terminal (./usr/local/bin/sandbox) I didn't think it would work... but was worth a try...

Executed 'sandbox' and got the previous error as before... Executed './sandbox_unix' (from the directory via a terminal or a launcher) and the program ran flawlessly.
