Maze Games in GameMaker


  • Students need to have a Windows computer or a virtual Windows app running on a Mac

  • Students need to install GameMaker Studio 1.4 or 2.0


Have you ever wondered about how to build computer games and not known where to start? GameMaker is an easy to use games development platform which streamlines the production of games. This means that all the common events in games like health, score, collisions, animations, levels, gravity etc… are very easy to implement!

In this course you will learn how to construct a multi level maze game with randomised gem behaviour, animated sprites, intelligent monsters and cool explosions. The course is created by two veteran classroom teachers one of whom is a GameMaker expert (Nat) and the other(Sanjin) is an experienced programmer learning GameMaker for the first time. So this means that all the core concepts are covered multiple times, all the common mistakes are explained and demonstrated before they happen and the students have a clear idea of the benchmarks which demonstrate understanding.

Who this course is for:

  • This course is for anyone who is keen to get started with programming
  • This course is anyone would like to learn how games work and how to make them
  • This course is for anyone who would like to learn the core functionality of GameMaker
  • This course IS NOT for experienced programmers (2000 hours+)
