Its my first game that I've ever made:). Its called Extreme Ed. It's very similar to Dangerous Dave(that old DOS game). It's not entirely done. All thats left is to design the AI, finish all the level design and improve a bit on some of the textures. Heres the link: Extreme Ed Controls: Left, right, up and down arrows for movement. Space is to shoot weapon and enter is to use a jetpack. The aim is to collect the keys and progress to the next level. Please give it a try and let me know what you think could be improved on. Thanks

Sorry man the exe start file doesnt work. Says something about an application error.. not sure why. Im running Windows XP if that means anything. I checked out the game textures, which look pretty good. Too bad it didnt work :(

Realy nice game for a start. How long are you working on it?


I've just self taught myself c++ so it's taken me about a year with about 3 or 4 total re-writes.

Ah...i read somewhere that distributing exe's made with visual studio can be quite
a challenge. Something to do with they way the CRT is linked or something but im not 100% sure. If you really want it to work try downloading the visual studio 2008 redistributable

Heres the link
its only 1.7mb

Cool game.

You might want to add a simple deceleration to your jumps to make them more realistic.

If you want to distribute your game to people without visual studio. Then goto project properties->c++->code genereation->runtime libraries. Change these to not use dll's.

Haha got it to work. Not bad at all, I liked the smooth clipping and the 2D graphics are done nicely. Would be nice to add sound and a level selector though :P

Thanks, i was actually planning sound but i forgot to list it here. I think i should also make the main menu a bit better looking aswell. What do you mean by a level selector though?
