    a simple 2D game based on the old gameboy black and white games and my first game



    I should be able to release this as a demo soon.
    right now I'm looking for places to do that.

    Cute. Walking animation seems slow for speed movement.

    good thing I was going for "Cute" in the design xD
    I'll keep that in mind.

    The hidden mirror leads you to this new location with strange, man made structures lining the cave walls. what could this all be? and what's at the end of the cave? find out in the Adventure Guy demo!

    Nice, you got music and everything.
    I find the explosion sound effect is harsh on the ears and fits more to an exploding car. Something cuter could be a big improvement in the consistency department. Anyway, keep doing your thing!

    Looks Like Adventure Guy got himself in a spot of trouble at the Caverns. Peak at some enemies for the next stage of Adventure Guy.

    The "Cute" was purposeful so I wouldn't have to make anything too complicated for my first game.
    I am Very pleased to hear you like the art as that's what I want to show off most here.

    Well, Nothing to show but a written update. Some tinkering is required to make the next few cutscenes work and I need to set up the next few levels. Exporting enemy sprites and programming them is also just ahead.

    Played the first level and I really like the art style + gameplay! I assume there's some inspiration from Mario Bros 2? That's what I saw anyway
    I like the tight jumping, but I feel like the game would be a bit better if you could run faster. With the way you jump so fast, it kinda clashes with the walking speed.
    Also the way that emerald thingy is the only colored object is a nice touch. I like that.
    Keep at it! Would love to see more levels

    When we last left Adventure Guy...


    with this out of the way, it's time to set up the next level.

    Thank you very much for the feedback. I'll experiment with running speeds to see if any variant feels better.
    The inspiration for this game was more "old Game Boy" games than any specific game.
    You'll see more colored objects as I wanted to use that against the B/W color scheme to show important objects.

    Great work so far Null-Z! I'm terrible at platformers and timing, and probably video games in general, but I still had a lot of fun and managed to beat the demo :D!


    Also just from us playing your game, we've entered you into our giveaway we are just starting to do. We are playing 6 Game Maker games a week and then giving away a FREE Game Maker Studio game published on Steam (Eg Hotline Miami, Hyper Light Drfiter, etc) to a developer of one of the games we play! You are the 5th out of 6 games to be played this week!

    In the cave Adventure Guy finds himself, he'll need to discover 4 LockGems in order to find his way out of the Cavern.

    Looking cute, love the old retro style :) you should smooth camera movemente though, since it is a little bit dizzing.
    The method I use in my game is simple, just use two coordinates: One for the place you want the camera to be (In this case the X ad Y of the player) and then the X and Y of the camera, which will move smoothly towards the first coordinate. The code for that in my game is the following:
    Code:
    x += (xTo - x)/cam_smoothness;
    y += (yTo - y)/cam_smoothness;
    Where X and Y are the coordinates for the camera and cam_smoothness is exactly what it says haha

    Hope you can implement that in your game since I think it will highly benefit from it :)
    Keep working on animations and control and you'll get a nice polish game soon

    It's been a long time with no updates I know, and I apologize
    But the Cave level is completed and I made myself a nifty opening title sequence!


    Now it's on to the level 3/4, and I'm excited to work on a floating Island Jungle themed level!
