Hey everyone! I've been working with the Game Maker program for awhile to make this so please leave constructive criticism ONLY. I've added links to reference points in case you dont know what they are. ^_^ So one day i was playing Metroid Prime 2 when i got a great story idea: What if you could play as Dark Samus? Basically, its a 2d platformer in sytle of Metroid Fusion. The premise of the backstory is that you are trying to escape Tallon IV so you may infect other worlds with phazon and destroy Samus. Unfortuneatly, your first ship crashed, so you must find another way off the planet. Right now Metroid Darkness is extremely basic in the way of Metroid Games. There are only 6 types of enemies and 3 bosses, plus there are only 4 secret rooms to find. The engine is based off of the tutorial by Martin Piecyk ATM, but i plan on making it much much more complex. Right, so now that all ^ is out of the way, I give you screenshot links and a DL link. Please keep in mind its my first non-buggy (hopefully) build, and that unexpected things may happen. Though if you read the instructions i think you'll be alright. I would appreciate comments/suggestions so i can improve this game so much more ^_^ --> Screenshots (only 2 atm) http://img93.imageshack.us/img93/5695/darkness1om9.png http://img93.imageshack.us/img93/1593/darkness2sm7.jpg --> DL Link Click the picture in my signature to be taken straight to d/l --> Known BUGS Graphical error when switching out of morphball You sometimes get stuck, just morphball or jump to get free Ladder jumping sometimes doesnt work as intended If you get stuck on a ladder, move away from the platform above it ***PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF THERE ARE BUGS ASAP SO I CAN FIX!***

Would it be legal for put on FileFront.com? I know the concept/name is copyrighted. But the work itself belongs to you.

I played though the first level and it a neat game. The only problem I have is the controls. I wish I could use a gamepad with it.

Now I know what you have been doing for the past few weeks:p

The only problem that I can see with this is having too many buttons. Right now you have 2 buttons for each new ability. Depending on how many items your going to have you might end up using half the keyboard which isn't a good thing. Other than that and a few bugs its a good game.
