This is a demo for the deception jam. It is a 2d side scrolling shooting game where you can jump, duck, float in the sky and kill robots.

Arrows down to duck.
Arrows left right to move like Mario.
Z to jump. Hold Z to float like Ray Man.
X to shoot. Hold X to charge your shot like Mega Man.

ESC to go back to the title screen.
M to mute all sound.

Immense difficulty spike from 2nd to 3rd stage.

I see you took inspiration from games of the series such as Mario, Rayman and Megaman, yet you didn't absorb what made those franchises enjoyable to play in the first place:
-Fluid movement
-Good options on how to traverse a terrain (at least for the newest titles)
-Balanced and gameplay: challenging, but fair
-Game mechanics as the core of the stages or of the game itself.

I recommend GameMaker's Toolkit if you'd like to extract some of that information better, Mark Brown - you can find his channel on YouTube - has multiple videos on how and why franchises are praised or diminished in a game design aspect.

Good luck with your game making journey.

Plus: audio only works after first death - very minor complaint since the music doesn't add or subtract much from the experience.

It was alright. You should make the graphics a bit better, and there was no story. I stopped playing after 5 minutes because I wasn't that interested.

Love it! the colors are cool and it reminds me a lot of megaman. Also I like how all the sounds fit pleasantly with the music

Good job on the Deception Jam entry!

Simple and polished game, nice work!

An average game that gets repetitive. Naming Mario and Mega Man in your instructions is a nice touch.
