Frame rate is smooth as silk even with maximum draw distance.
Loved the original - & this is better
Really proves that 3D games can be made with GM *& run well & fast if you code it right*.One of the top 3D GM games out there.
Editor is *top notch* & really makes this a very satisfying, complete package.
Looks like there is a ton of neat levels.
Crits would be:
1. Textures are very weak - could be alot better.
2. Level design is pretty nice - but suffers from "unknown depth issues" (if that makes sense) with alot of the jumping -
an easy solve for this would be to have the "jump off" point differently colored than the rest or to have an arrow.
Hope that made sense (it effects the game badly & could be easily fixed).
3. Music is weak (alot of familiar tunes there...) - would be so much better with real original music - also, being midi means we have the dreaded "GM midi looping bug" that "pauses the game (which can lead to frustrating deaths). Consider using supersound .dll & .ogg (totally free to use) maybe in future!
4. Character control is pretty good - no glitches as such, but control of movement after jumping could be improved.
Make all the textures external (as the backgrounds are) so we can create new ones
might also be good for you, if a good artist comes along with much better textures, you could replace your ones for the better ones.
Congrats on making one of the top ten GM games I've seen
Best of luck!
EDIT: Love the spiders!
