The thing I like about this logo is that it fucking rips.

A new level has been completed. It is a study of bombs.

TBQ-QNX-PFG

It's all about things you can do with bombs, on/off blocks, and bill launchers in SM1.

Uploaded my first level. It's about helping friends and... being betrayed?

This is an interesting discussion to me because I was thinking about attempting to do a sort of remake of the original LoZ in Game Maker Studio. I just wanted a fun project to sharpen up my programming where I won't have to do all the graphics, etc. Though I'd probably modernize/add some accessibility options to it, and wouldn't try to capture all the weird glitches and exploits folks have discovered.

But yeah, when I played it again (about 5 or 6 years ago) after not playing since the mid-90's I found I didn't need much of a guide outside of very specific things. The game DOES tell you about most it's secrets, but usually you have to buy multiple hints from random people you find in caves and even then they're pretty vague. Looking up a scan of the manual isn't a bad idea though. It has some really rad art.

OH NO. It didn't look like my game was submitted since I had to make the page. Ah hell. That sucks.

EDIT: Oh thank Zandra! Sent you a DM.

I finished my game just in time! It's Match3 meets Breakout, and was inspired by the videos of stuff like Money Puzzle Exchanger and Tetris Battle Gaiden. Though it doesn't really have any references to Giant Bomb. It's two player though! I never made a multiplayer game before so that was fun knocking that out today.

I think I'm going to give this a shot. I kinda want to make a little breakout clone, but I'm not sure how to make it Giant Bomb themed. Breaking Brad Out probably has already been done...?

Same issue here. Wins 7, Firefox. Tried some of the solutions mentioned in this thread, but none worked.

Also tried closing and reopenning my browser as sometimes that fixes issues I've had with wonky video things, but that didn't do anything.
