    Hey guys!

    My name is Steven French and I make clone tutorials on my YouTube channel. I have a heaps of fun making theses and I try to keep the code pretty simple for new developers to learn. But I have a question for y'all!

    Which classic titles would you be interested in seeing a tutorial series on? Typically, I just make the code on the first level/stage of the game as to keep the series short, so keep that in mind =P

    I think I'll be working on Tetris next as it's a pretty simple one to bang out. In the mean time, I would love to get some suggestions on other titles!!

    Many thanks and much love!!

    How about Pac-Man but only using Tiles?

    Only using tiles? Even for Pac and the Ghosts? That would be tricky haha. But could be a good challenge?

    I'd be interested in any of the pseudo 3d racing games of the past. Even back then it was very impressive and I think many would find interesting how it can be implemented in gamemaker.

    Tetris is quite likely to be next. I found some assets I can use and I've made a similar game before.


    Oh man, I've had a few ideas about that style of game but that definitely seems like a challenge. No clue how they were able to pull it off back then haha.

    That's a bummer! Game Maker is a hella fun tool.

    Have you tried Godot Engine? TBH, I kinda like it even more than GM, but I'm far more familiar with this platform haha.

    Literally never heard of this game before, but a quick google search tells me that you might be on to something! haha

    I want to clone patapon. It's abandonwear at this point. Sony ain't bringing the PSP back and it seems like the PS4 is no place for fun little rhythm games, so patapon is dead. Still one of my favorite games for its unique style and charm.

    Collaspe!!! if anybody remembers this. I'm sure it's still around but I would like to clone one or make my own rendition of it. I just don't understand how puzzles work unfortunately

    I don't know what classic i would like to clone...
    All what i think about this is to clone games that are not actually classics instead of games that are actually classics... sorry...

    Not sure if it's a traditional "classic" but I've always wanted to do a shining force clone.
