Blyka's Mega Man Engine (GM 7.0) Released: 2011.12.25 Downloaded: 8738

The solid engine seen in my modern SuperDanny titles. The list of features is quite substantial, and it provides a good jump-start to making a quality Mega Man game. Though for as solidly as it plays, working with the engine itself can be a hassle as I was still very inexperienced at the time. Only released by very popular demand, in fact, and wasn't built with public use in mind.

High level GM experience, GM Pro and perseverance are required. Download comes with a playable demo, and you can see it in action here.

** I've never used it myself, but I recommend checking out the Mega Engine for a more modern, fully-featured and user-friendly alternative to this engine. **

Skull Man Example (GM 7.0) Released: 2006.05.27 Downloaded: 6611

A very basic and inaccurate Mega Man example with a simple movement engine, enemies, energy bar, etc. It's 99% coded in GM's drag-&-drop actions with tons of explanations for even the most basic functions, so it's better for basic learning than serious use.
