So, As you may or may not know, I'm currently in College (UK) on a games development course. So one of our teachers set an assignment to create a 2D Side-Scrolling Platformer game in Game Maker. After hours of work and typing up the assignment on how I managed to make the game. I finally finished the game.
 
If you want to play the game here it is:
It's just a link to the file in my Google Drive, so don't worry, no viruses. xD
It will download an installer and install my game.
Try your best to beat my time.
My best time was 2:06
 
Have fun!
 
It's obviously not the best game ever, but it's a start. :]

Ok guys the viruses are leaving right now, so you can probably download and run the .exe in 10 minutes!

It says a "preview" isn't available because it's an .exe so you know... I downloaded it without any problems. :P

 

Also here's a virus scan for them scared people.

I've not had the chance to play the game yet but will when I get a chance and give you feedback.

Where are you attending this course and is this a first year assignment, have you picked a title yet or are you still exploring your skill set?

GameMaker is a fun engine to work with, if you dig deep into it you can churn out some really awesome stuff.

@Frag

I'm attending this course at King's Lynn in England and yeah it's one of the many assignments I have to do for this year... My course isn't just about creating games it's also about the games industry in general so that after completing this course you have a wider range of opportunities. At the moment I'm thinking about coding/modelling/mapping but honestly I will decide between all of them after I explore all the subjects within this course so that I know what I'm best at doing. My favourite thing to do is just to play around in Hammer when I have free time so more than likely I'll be mapping.

I'll explore Game Maker a lot more as it's a good way to show of your skills if you're ever looking for a job in the games industry, it looks good on your CV and shows that you can code, draw sprites and many other things that you need to do when creating a game in that program.

 

@Proxgamers

xD, well thanks for the feedback, this was intended to be a rage-quit type game but due to time constraints I haven't had the amount of time needed to polish the game up and actually make a better game.

 

I will be creating more games in Game Maker when I have free time because I really enjoyed making this one. Obviously this game isn't the best because of the deadline for the assignment but now that I have a better understanding of this program I will be able to produce better games. :D

@Proxgamers

Thanks again for the great feedback. Will do! :D

 

I've made minor changes to the game and the actual .exe file itself now.

So now instead of having to install the game, you can just run the .exe. Earlier when I was compiling the game I didn't realise I can change the output in the drop down menu so sorry to the people who had to install it.

Changes:

I added a HUD for the timer and I also made it so that it's in the middle or at least closer then from what it was before...

Also whenever you step onto the locked door instead of a message showing up there is a icon that pops up in a speech bubble with a key icon inside of it, should be self explanatory of what it means. :P

But yeah other than that I think this game is complete. It was a cool project to work on and as it was my first I will be doing more since I enjoyed doing this so much. :D

 

Here's a link to the updated version:

If you need any advice I'm happy to offer it, I've been in the industry for about 5 years now, one piece of wisdom I will leave you with is this.

Pick a practice, don't specialise in everything, studios are not looking for a jack of all trades, its good to know other practice's so you can better communicate on ideas and issues, but when you have your practice, stick with it :)

P.S I'm a level designer, so if your interested in heading down that route, I'll happily chuck wisdom :)

Thanks for the offer Frag. :D

I am going to have my practice but just like you said, I want to be able to understand their practices too in order to communicate better.

Also I know you're a level designer from all the knowledge you shared on this forum I kinda figured that out already. :P

I'd love to work with you one day on a level/map if you don't mind obviously because I've got many idea's for maps but sometimes I just cannot create them as I may not have the knowledge or I just don't have time to do it. If I could I would spend around 6 hours each day on Hammer/UDK (Still need to learn how to use UDK) just coming up with levels.
