This is a game I was working on months before I started work on Crossover Shooter that was created with CoolGuy2's I Wanna Be The Engine. Unlike Crossover Shooter, this one is 95% finished (I just need to add a final boss and credits reel).

PLEASE SEND FEEDBACK, there is an utter lack of feedback for this game, and the feedback I've already received is only for the first 5% or so of the game. Any feedback will be appreciated, any pertaining to the first boss or later would be greatly appreciated.


I Wanna Reach The End!
Category: Action Platformer/ Sadistic Hell/ IWBTG fangame
File Size: 220,772 KB as of version 0.5 (I know it's a huge file, but I can't compress it any smaller)
GM Version: GM8
Vista Compatible: unknown
Changes Screen Resolution: no

https://www.dropbox....bn1m6/IWRTE.zip

The controls are (99%) the same as IWBTG (I Wanna Be The Guy). For those of you unfamiliar with the controls, they are listed ingame (press H on the title screen).

The levels are difficult and it is most likely you will die A LOT when you play this game, so use the save points often. Remember that no matter how hard it seems, these levels are do-able (if they weren't I wouldn't be uploading this...)

The levels are divided into screens and contain a warp at the end that takes you to either the boss or the next level.

Sadly, I couldn't run this game. I completed the download and unzipped the archive successfully. But the game crashed immediately. Just a black window... then crash. (For the record, I'm running Win XP with 4G RAM, and a Radeon 2400 HD graphics card.)

btw... what have you got in there that requires a 220 MB game file?

Idk, It could be the music (.mp3s), the levels, the objects, the backgrounds, the paths, etc.

It could be your system that prevents you from running it. I run (and thus made the game on) Windows 7 (isn't XP a bit... outdated?).

What the heck , the download size is 215 mb [megabytes] , my computer though it was a virus and deleted my RAM ! [raw archive memory]

Just kiddings :thumbsup:

My only problem with that game is that the shift key is bound to jump and it causes Sticky keys to pop up for me . Apart from that this is a very good solid work . The only thing I donot like is the spikes that glitch throug the wall and kill me on the f1st level ~! Also why can I not jump onto the ceiling in the starting spot like I can in SMB [super mario bros. [brothers] ] ? And when I go off the screen to the left I die also .

The second level is my fave even though I got killed by glitch spikes .

I think I found a bug , there is a dragon thing stuck in the blocks here Posted Image Also I can save from that position where I am , so that I don't have to redo the spike pit again , is that intentional ? I think u wantd the spawn to happen by the save box ? Also the dfragon just glitched on the next level and killed me , is this intentional ??

I ' m on the 5fth level and I see the dragon again ? :confused: I couldnot beat this level , sorry .

Overall this game needs some work , its not very good 9/10 :thumbsup:
I am like a phoenix... I mean, Turkey.

You have obviously not played IWBTG (I Wanna Be The Guy, look it up on google, youtube, or something) or a related game before...

You were still on level one! lol! (you got to level 1 screen 5 judging by your description)
if you go offscreen in a certain direction in screen one you die (same is true whenever you touch a level boundary) It's supposed to give a false sense of multiple directions.
The spikes were not glitching! They are SUPPOSED to do that! (you have obviously not played IWBTG or a related game before)
The "Dragon" (Actually a smaller version of the first boss) you were referring to is supposed to attempt to kill you on the next screen (It's a trap!).
the save point is intended to be hit as well.

Remember that it is explicitly stated that this game is sadistic and very difficult.

I played IWBGT [I Wanna Be the Guy] but it had a lot of bugs . Not as many as your game has . Also I remember some of the apples on level 1 were bugged , maybe you used the same source code for the spikes ?

If I was not on level 1 then how many levels are there ?

I know the save point is supposed to be hit but shouldn't the character spawn next to the save point and not the place he hit it from ?

I didnt think the game was that difficult I just got tired of restarting , there should be more save points in my IMO [in my opinion] .

how is it called a bug if IT'S SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN!?

Pardon me for sounding rude, but I just wanted to get that point across...

To answer your questions:

There are currently 8 levels at the moment (11 if you count the "sub-levels" without bosses), each divided into many screens.

You are supposed to spawn where you hit the save point from. (there are some areas where you can use this to your advantage)

I will not be adding more save points unless I absolutely have to. The amount of save points I give is pretty reasonable, there could be much less...

I'm sorry Evil Nazgul I was just confused why you would intentionally want a bug in your game , ... it's okay *hugs*

Wow , 8 levels ? Maybe you should add warp pipes haha , as an easter egg .

Also one thing I want to say is that you should have difficulty levels like in IWBGT with easy difficulty having more save points . I think it would be pretty easy to implement . It's just that some of us don't want to play through several screens without making a single mistake , I feel like if I passed an area once I shouldn't have to do it again because it doesnot add to the fun of the game . That's just IMO opinion though and your free to do what you wish with your game :)

Also can you add in achievements ?

If I knew how and if it didn't take up much memory, then sure.

(I originally thought of adding achievements, but I have no idea how to link it with the engine's save point system (so they don't reset when you reload) so I abandoned the idea)

An IWBTG fangame? Awesome.

It's difficult too. Have you/Are you going to tried/try it?
I've recieved very little feedback, and that was only for the first 5% of the game. If you have played it, or are going to, I will be looking forward to your feedback.

Due to the lack of feedback this is getting, I do believe a video of gameplay is in order. (if you have seen any of my Crossover Shooter vids, You will know that I can't record audio from my computer so I put the actual music used in-game over the clip)
(moved to first post)
