A jigsaw game, but
played with square pieces within the confines of its own
picture like a click and slide. I created this game
because I like jigsaws, but when doing them on the
computer there isn't enough space for the pieces on the

This is a sideways
scrolling space shooter, with seven levels of enemies and
a mothership to defeat.
I didn't originally set out to create this game, I was
just playing about with a random landscape example I
found and the game sort of evolved from it.
The game has the option of joystick control.

This is a basic
asteroids game, written as a experiment to see how small
I could make a game using GM, while it still remained a
proper game. The game images are all drawn, with no
sprites used except as collision masks.
Some tiles are used to draw the stars on the background,
as drawing them would have consumed to many resources.
The only serious problem was the main ship image, which
has only 8 sub images, as each image had to be calculated
by hand on graph paper.
The game was created
on a computer running Win 98se at 800mhz, so anything
that speed or faster should be OK, older machines may
slow down a bit during the explosions because of the
amount of drawing involved. Fps should be about 30, it is
displayed in the bottom left of the screen.

micro game by Thrain & Rob.
Fight your way through
an ever increasing swarm of hostile? balloons, hit a
balloon or the ground and you are dead, go too high and
your helicopter can't take it. You can shoot the balloons
and gain thirty points with each hit, but can you fire
and dodge? Get as far as you can, for the highest score.
This was originally a game
by Thrain, but I then modified it to improve the graphics
and reduce the file file size so that it could be used as
a micro game in the GM Newsletter. ( Had to be under 25k
in editable form when zipped.)

As the name
suggests ToDo List is a handy pad to jot down those tasks
and appointments you might otherwise forget.
