Thank you hpg678!

If you find the game too difficult, I do have a "skip level" cheat built in, and if you want access to it, and tell you it in a PM. :)

Calling all Linux users:

Unfortunately, the only Linux machine I own is a dual boot with Windows, and it is an Ubuntu distro installed via wubi, and there is so little memory on the Ubuntu side, that LGM crashes when I try to run or build a binary. If anyone would like to compile a Linux binary from the source code, via ENIGMA, and send me the resulting binary, that would be much appreciated! :D

Thanks for sharing the game. It's nice and works well.

I've found the following interesting code in the press_Enter event  :D :

Code: [Select]
    if (keyboard_check(vk_control)) {
   
        if (room_exists(room_next(room))) {
       
            room_goto_next();

By the way, it was really nice to share the source code. That's how we can learn how games are made.

I want to do a similar project. I would like to do a remake of the c64 game 'Wanted: Monty Mole' :

But this time i will use Unity3d. There is an interesting feature in this game : everytime a new maze is created in the center of the map.

That game looks really cool! (But also really difficult and confusing). I wish you the best of luck on the project! :)

I was able to confirm that the ENIGMA-built Windows executable works on Linux seamlessly using Wine. Of course, I'd prefer for the game to run on Linux natively as a real Linux binary, but I'm just throwing this out there for anyone who might want to play this on Linux, using Wine, just download the ENIGMA-built version.

Hey thanks guys!

@faissaloo

When I tried to run the application you provided, nothing happened, other than an empty text document was created with this name:

"p�@@H� (invalid encoding)"

@rcobra

The application you sent works on Ubuntu without any issues, this is the file I will use when I upload the Linux build to itch.io.

Again, thank you so much! :D

Cheers.
