GameMaker: Studio's great! especially now that there's an unlimited free version. I spent 2 years writing my own engine, but am now switching to gamemaker since it can export to multiple platforms. I'm using the free version right now, but definitely plan on buying the complete edition once I get a game out. Wish I knew about this sooner!
Only complaint really and reason for 9/10 is with the map editor being kind of clunky compared to some I've used in the past. It's unusual having depth instead of layers. Seems to not have any paint bucket, replace all type tools and you can't change size of area you paint tiles with, but it gets the job done. Other minor issue which is kind of a personal preference is the gamemaker language. I'm still getting use to it, but i find some aspects of it hard to get use to like creating an instance and i don't think it has functions, but instead uses scripts? was pretty easy to pick up otherwise.
Definitely recommend it!
i was searching for good 2D game engine ,i try game maker from year 2000 when it was free until now , i try most of 2D engines , i can say this one is the best one ever !!! very easy and clear , the developer make improvements very fast , always removing bugs , and all this for free ,give it a try ...
This game is hard, addictive and fun. I found it more enjoyable than other flappy based games. Perfect to kill 10 minutes while waiting for what ever. Not sure if the paid version is any different but the free one has ads with each play which can get a little annoying.
