Nighthawk17's Top Down Shooter Example

This is a GM7, it's for registered users, so I included an exe too.

I mainly made this for someone who was new to GML and wanted to learn so he could make a top down shooter, but I liked how it turned out, and decided to submit it here!

Controls:
WSAD or Arrows to move
Click to shoot

Features:
Movement with WASD or arrows
Three weapons
Original sprites
Fully commented
Ammo & Pickup system
Primitive AI
Working HUD

Enjoy! [:D]

The AI is pretty bad. I'd recommend looking at my top down shooter AI example: http://64digits.com/games/index.php?cmd=view_game&id=3306
Everything else is good though & well commented.

They haven't added GM7 support to 64D yet, but I included an exe so you can still see how it looks.

Not if you're using Windows 98.
Nighthawk commented April 30, 2007 at 11:51 PM
I thought GM7 was 98 compatible. [:U]

Not bad
But I noticed some guns from Soldat :D
Oh and no, Gm7 is 2000 and over

The enemies are a bit dum like Noodlenog allready said. They just come till they are under you. But it looks nice!

Aha, Metroid music. It's decent, but rather basic.
Nighthawk commented May 01, 2007 at 6:21 PM
Well, it's an example, it's supposed to be basic, too complex and the only kind of people who can use it will already know how. [:P]

Sweet, i always wanted this! I can pretty much implement another AI, thats never the problem. But the example is mainly for the main charactor, so I give it a 9

Game Devil, it's not fair to downrate Examples because they were made in GM7, and therefore, I deleted your comment.
