Note:

Thanks to anyone who enjoyed the joke!

Just to point out: I don't want to offend anyone with it. Internet is an essential resource for learning.

Of course it would be nice to not see copy-paste games swarming around, so here I got the idea. New developers, don't give up! Learn as much as possible.

The game was made with GameMaker: Studio 1.4.

I wanted to use Godot, but for a little flaw when changing scene in HTML5, I understood it wasn't good for this.


Thanks to xygthop3 for his CRT Shader.

Writing shaders is hard, but for this game I tried to write my own glitch shader.


If you getting some errors on Firefox, you need to update it OR play the game in Chrome.

Awesome! If any developer makes a clone of another game as his first, this should be an inspiration to give it at least some kind uniquiness or a trademark-like thing.

The game itself controls well, and the art style really hits the point!

Lit music but damn that Pong AI is tough as a nut.

WOW THIS IS SO NICE

Very cool game! I like the idea of jumbling together a bunch of simple mini-games based off of common 'first game' themes you see in tutorial videos on youtube and such and creating a rapid-fire Warioware-esque reaction game where you cycle through all of them. I had a lot of fun playing them, with some of them being better than others. I felt like the tutorial section wasn't even needed: the thought is nice, but it took way too long, and all of the games did an already good job at leaving a second or two for the player to react and realize what game you were playing and the controls to it (except for flappy disk, that can kill you instantly, screw that game haha). I'm unsure if I'm missing some sort of ending or something: I played the games and got a high score but I was kinda waiting for some sort of twist ending or event to happen. I tried hitting publish but nothing: maybe I need a higher score?

HealliesGames responds:

Actually the main game is a score attack, but yes there's a little bonus secret!
The publish button is just for Newgrounds, to let players share their high-score.

For the secret you need to enter the BIOS of the virtual machine, as the readme suggests.
Thanks for the feedback!

Is the title sarcastic? If only everybody's first game had this level of detail.
