Neat game! Great job for your first time! I included it in my Game Maker Toolkit’s Game Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)


Wow, this is better than any of my first attempts in GameMaker. My favorite part was the developer commentary, it was funny and insightful. The gameplay ideas you discussed sounded good. I can imagine some neat puzzles that involve managing your size/health/ammo. The music selection was also nice, I was jamming out the whole time I was playing. I got stuck in the "monster" room 3 for a bit by becoming the wrong size, but was able to eventually finish the whole game. Good job!



Thanks for talking the time to play through my game and offer some feedback. Really appreciate it :)
