Throwing Engine

Heres a click, drag and throw engine I made. I also put in some planes that you can throw objects at and destroy if it's traveling above a certain speed. I think this could make a great game in a lot of different ways. Use it to learn from and make your own little throwing game!

Click below to play. Click and drag objects to throw.

Indie Game The Movie

A great movie I watched recently was Indie Game The Movie recommended to me by Marty. I highly recommend watching it to see a sort of different side of game making. The maker of Fez has a really rough time with lawsuits and the whole process in general. He ends up quitting game making after the 4 year development of Fez. It goes to show that sometimes it can be very rough and stressful dealing with it financially. It's definitely worth a watch, also has great success as well like Edmund's game Meat Boy.

Sidescroller Shooter Engine

Heres a sidescrolling shooter engine I coded that you may use to learn from. It has a basic platform engine and various weapons. It uses basic trigonometry to calculate the angle to shoot the bullets. The last weapon is a laser tripwire which is pretty cool, I haven't even used that in a game yet. Feel free to edit and modify the code as you wish. Just don't use the graphics in any released projects. Hope this is helpful for you to make your own game.

Have a go at the editor here - WASD to move in test. Number keys to select Weapon. Mouse to shoot.
(Has Sound Effects)

Grid Editor

Sometimes in game making it's great to make your own level editor. This allows you to save a lot of time when it comes to making the levels later because you can simply post in the array for each level and load it by numbers. Also good for including in the game so other people can make there own levels and share with friends. Heres one I coded that you can use for free to learn from. The code exports an array to fill the grid, each block number is represented by a number. 1 being a basic block and any other numbers can be added for extra pieces. The array uses a | to seperate the lines to be able to load the level from the text. My game Time Sphere used an advanced version of this engine to make.
