Hello my friends!
I Would like to show You my newest game called "Top Hat". It's 2D classic platformer, just like old NES games. It will be hard, fun,with lots of collectibles and enemies to avoid, or kill. Currently, there are 3 levels + boss to beat, but there will be more in the future, in other scenerys.
One day, to our hero house came strange guy. He said, that he can buy from us speciall golden top hat, which is really, really rare. Unfortunately, stranger poisoning us, and we wake up in dungeons, with a... GUN! We want payback, and of course our golden TOP HAT!
Known issues:
-some problems with animation
-if you will fall outside the room, you will not loose life
-you need to run to the left for example, and then click UP to jump, otherwise you will glitch with jump
-little bug with boss animation while "speaking"

Category: 2D Platformer
File Size: 13052KB
GM Version: GM8
Vista Compatible: I think yes, i never played it on vista, but it should work, of course.
Changes Screen Resolution: No, but maybe in other versions.
Download Link: TOP HAT ALPHA Game is hosted on gmclan.org - the biggest Polish site about game maker!

Game is created by N94 Games, which include only me. I also used some of great,free and simple gravity example, and talkbox by gnysek.

Looks good! Downloading... I'll edit in a bit.
I also advise you to edit the first post with the new link as well as posting a new thing.

Okay. It was very fun. Here are some of the good things, bad things, and a bug I found.

Good things

-Superb Graphics
-Flawless Sound Effects
-Great music
-Smooth Physics
-Clever Design
-Good Story

Bad things

-The cutscene had a few grammatical errors
-Gets hard much too quickly
-Not enough levels (I know you'll fix this)
-There were some things in the background that looked like spikes when they weren't

Bugs

-You keep collected coins when you die ( Eg- I collect three coins, I die, I still have three coins )
-The save point in level two didn't work. When I died, I restarted the entire level.

Overall

Overall, it was a very good start to a retro platformer. You should definitely keep working on this. Don't forget to add lots more levels! :)

You made really good job with graphism ! They respect carefully the NES spirit, while adding a touch of modernity!!! The game seems to be a little hard to play, i mean for beginners, if your first level is as hard as seen on your video, they will never finish it ;)

Anyway, great job!

It's a short gameplay from stage 3 of the game. It's little bit slower because of fraps. As You can see many things changed from beta version ( music is original soundtrack! ).
