Hello world!!! Today, I have that platformer project I've been working on since late 2014!!
Fast Action Heroine. A game about quick reactions as well as some explosions.

Controls: IJKL: movement. Z: Sword. C: Gun.
Can also be played with a gamepad in an Xbox configuration.

 

Recent changes:

-remade tha camera (your welcome)
-shooting now slows the player while moving
-tweaked explosion sprite
-fixed a few Game maker related changes
(yoyogames pop-up, texture interpolation, ect)

Notes:
-The sword attacks have been a tad unresponsive when spamming it repeatedly.
-I need feedback for the screenshake, whether or not it's to use, and not that nauseating.
-Slopes are FAR from perfect, but right now they're acceptable.
-Lastly and most importantly. I probably won't be returning to this project, and if I do, it wont be for a long while.

Could you please add some screenshots to the topic? The forum rules require it, and you'll find you get far more downloads from it too... :thumbsup:

Nocturne didn't know his own rules:

 

Provide Screenshots:  WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND SCREENSHOTS (suggested image hosts).  A video of the gameplay is also useful. Keep posted images under 800 x 600 pixels, and under 100 kB per image. You may include up to 5 images per post.

It says "recommend", not "required".

 

Anyway... you should always provide screenshots.

I played your game, its good. The thing that seemed a bit buggy to me was the camera movement and the physics(gravity).

Did you make that type of camera movement intentionally or ... ?

 

The dialogues were great.

Graphics were also good.

Yeah, this is my first REAL attempt at a platformer. Not awful, but there is huge room for improvement, to say the least.

The gravity is meant to be heavy. Perhaps it's simply moving through the air that's the issue? I'm honestly not sure. There is something stiff about jumping though.

The camera is definitely a work in progress. I need it to adjust to the player, and quickly. As you can tell the results were, clunky, putting it lightly...

As for the artwork. I'm honestly surprised I keep getting good feedback on it. My other project, Arana, has been given similar compliments. Funny thing is, I've no actual interest in art, so I'm self taught. Another thing about the artwork is that it was originally much higher scale (roughly 24x24). But was shrunk into 16x16 one the sheer size began to make the "physics" too dificult to handle. Personally, i prefer the smaller scale.
Thanks for the feedback! -Cpaz

Hello World! today I bring a Fast Action Heroine update. It isnt big. Just cleaning up a few things. I should also stress that I don't intend on releasing any major update for this little project. While that is certainly prone to change. I found working on this game to be too much hastle to find the end product satisfying enough. So, to make this a tad more playable for those interested, I give you UPDATE!!
