My first ever game, ever

Post your Construct-made creations!

Hurray!
I've finished production on my first video game, I've never done anything like this before except for making a dot move across the screen in VB, so I'm fairly proud.
It's a fairly basic highscore game (without a highscore board) where you play as Gambit, fighting off increasingly more Demons.

I wouldn't exactly call it finished, there are many things I could/should add, but I was getting a bit bored and wanted to start on a new project using original sprites etc.
Thanks to everyone in the community who helped, especially Deadeye for his platform tutorials and managing to answer all of my questions in the help topic board.

None of the sprites or sound in this is original, it's all ripped from other games, I'm not going to list them all here, perhaps you can guess which games they're from :lol:

How cool is that?! :D
Hahaha Loved those enemies (RISE FROM YOUR GRAVE!)

Gameplay is well balanced, great for a first game!
I like how simple it is: Limited "bullets" and all.

Congrats, man!

Thanks for sharing the .cap!

Pretty good for a first game :)

I must say though, I'd like to see something with original art.

Gambit looks great and plays great, though I would have liked to see original graphics too. (but hey, congrats on your first playable!)
Lion taming ftw!

Looks great, I used to love Ghost'n'Goblins at the arcades. I'm just about to start work on my first game, more to learn construct than to produce an origanl master piece. I'm finding it tricky to get started with an orginal game idea, which is very hard to come up with these days but can make a all the difference. I'm not one of these people who think its all been done before, indie/homebrew games is definately where all the best new ideas are coming from.
