Hey I finished a game a couple months ago, called Halo: Flooded. It is a 2d platformer I created for one of my classes at Full Sail University. I based the gameplay on the Nazi Zombie mod of Call of Duty: World at War. The game is free, as I created it for educational purposes. You can check it out at here Feel free to post comments :)

Congratulations on completing the game!

I had a few problems with it:
* When I tried to run the game, it crashed and said that d3dx9_39.dll was missing. It was easily fixed by placing the DLL in the game's directory in Program Files, but you might want to include that DLL. If you don't already have it on your computer, you can get it here.
* In your How To Play section the control for picking up a gun is listed as "E" but in the game, E doesn't work but pressing Q does. Is that just a typo somewhere?
* Is there a reload button? I didn't see anything in How To Play. I definitely missed being able to reload whenever I wanted when I played.
* On my computer, it seems to be shifted up (there is a black bar about 2 inches tall on the bottom of the screen below the game), is it supposed to be like this?

Other than that the game was fun and entertaining. I liked it. I'll definitely recommend this to my friends, who love Halo.

Again, nice job!

Thanks for the info on that directx DLL, I'm going to add that in the installer so everyone else doesn't have similar issues.

I'm glad you enjoyed it, I'm actually going to be posting another game I completed with a group just a few days ago.

Congrats on finishing the project. I assume the next game you're going to post is from SGP? That was my favorite class going Full Sail (our team created an RPG called The Legend of Roto. I look forward to seeing how things turned out for you, I'm always interested in seeing projects from up-and-coming Full Sail students.
