 Game Maker Programming






YouTube plugin error  


Do you want to develop computer games without spending countless hours learning how to become a programmer? Then you've come to the right place. Game Maker allows you to make exciting computer games, without the need to write a single line of code. Making games with Game Maker is a lot of fun.

Using easy to learn drag-and-drop actions, you can create professional looking games within very little time. You can make games with backgrounds, animated graphics, music and sound effects, and even 3D games! And when you've become more experienced, there is a built-in programming language, which gives you the full flexibility of creating games with Game Maker. What is best, is the fact that Game Maker can be used free of charge

Game Download link:


I recommend some Game Maker experience before doing this!

First of all: Game made by Djrellik NOT ME!
Song: It doesn't matter by Tony Harnell

More detailed steps:

1. Download Game Maker from


2. Click on the link on the vid description and download the game. http://www.yoyogames.com/games/show/1605

3. Then go to "My Documents" and open the zipped folder.

4. Then you'll be at a screen with a lot of programs and stuff click on the file the has the Game Maker symbol on the right-ish (Red circle and wrench thing it it)

5. The game should be opened in Game Maker now!

6. Go to the folder on G maker "Rooms"

7. And delete the room "creditroom" should be the first room. Then click on the room you want to edit!

8. And edit the level with objects!

NOTE: I recommend to remove the object called mumorioover, it seems to cause an error.

9. Play your newly made level by pressing the green arrow in the top left corner!

10. Go to SET KEYS, I recommend to set Run as O and Jump as P.

11. Select your level on the map and begin!

NOTE: Djrellik has a youtube account (called Djrellik) you can ask him questions too! Or me... But I didn't make it so it would be wiser to ask him!
