Okay, first, you people need to stop crucifying this poor guy. It's not a virus, I put my perfectly good PC on the line just to prove that.
AND CAN A MOD PLEASE MOVE THIS!
These caps are necessary. Trust me.
there are still things I'd like to say toward the person who made this thing.
Basically, you had a good plan but you executed it poorly on all aspects.
First of all, you should have had some screenshots when you made that first post. People need to see to believe nowadays, unfortunately.

It'll need some work, if this project improves, you could probably have one of our own graphics designers help you with it. I know at least one of them is a nice person.
(Image of the screen before I started the game including my full desktop, just to prove I actually played it to those thinking its a virus)
The game's premise is extremely straightforward. Collect as many dots you can without getting hit by a ghost. Those baddie ghosts get predictable very
quickly. They need a lesson from the Pac-Man Ghosts, I swear.
The first mission can be beaten in a matter of seconds. I shudder to think how quickly experienced metroid speedrunners would butcher this.
Now, I'm not sure if that was intended, but the screen never moves after it scrolls down to the player as it begins. And if it was intentional, I think you need a better system. Maybe have the camera actually go through everything in a modest manner so the player can actually prepare.
I barely tried this. Lack of motivation, definately.
Put some work to it. I'm no Game Maker user at all, but I'm sure there are people in this forum with a lot more experience that are willing to help.
Now, I want everyone
to learn from this.
I downloaded Gamer Maker just to make my point to everyone
. Just because he's a newbie doesn't me you can ridicule him like that without even making an effort to figure out whether that game was really genuine.
I did this post, the downloading, screenshots, ect. in a half-an-hour and I'm supposed to be working on a project.
Move this to the Game Projects section so those people can actually take care of this guy.
And everyone else, just don't be so harsh next time and waste a page to flame a guy for things you aren't even sure he did.
To uberpokemonx: Don't call the other people n00bs, even if they're giving you a hard time. About the game: Good idea, poorly executed. Work on it and get some help and I'm sure you'll do fine in the future.
To everyone else: Get off his back. I'm not sure if it's because we're getting to the latter stages of summer but flames have been getting increasingly high lately. That incident with Lotad wasn't that far back, either. Just don't go flaming people so much unless you really have reason to.
That's all I have to say. Now let the mods and actual Game Maker-experienced members
