    This is a game I made when I first started out with Gamemaker. This project was meant to be a platformer but ended up being this. This game is free so download and have fun!

    Arrow Keys - Move Left or Right
    Space - Restart

    UPDATE 1.1
    - When FReD falls outside of the level the game displays a message and then restarts the level.

    Not a bad start. It's a simple arcade-style game with a simple objective and easy controls. The graphics are really minimal, and that's fine. But everything looks very flat and unexciting. So you might consider adding some depth and/or background features to add some visual interest.

    I REALLY like your music choice. That light Bossa nova is very pleasing and bouncy -- even if it is a bit repetitious.

    The gameplay is OK. It's fairly challenging. But the level-of-difficult progresses in the proper way, so players aren't overwhelmed too early. And when you die, the level re-starts so that's good.

    However, there's a major flaw in the game: when the falling man (Fred) falls off the screen without hitting either a red (win) or a black (die) square, the level does NOT restart. So the game just hangs and the player must exit and re-start the game. That part should be easy to fix, and should be done so right away. Otherwise, the game isn't really playable.

    But overall, this has promise. Add a few screenshots, so people can see what's it like, and you might get more plays.

    It says that Space restarts the room. I don't know if this was added right now or not but the player does not have to
    Overall though I think the game is great. Its simple, a little difficult and enjoyable...

    Still stuck though on the secret room though...
