great art style, challenging battle system, and nicemusic
i wished it gave more room to move around in and that the bullets would fire in longer directions.
Where to start? How many game out there can you name that sit where Fran Bow sits? That's beautifully hand drawn and animated from to? I can't seem to think of any. Fran Bow is such a unique game and experience. Craft with love and sweat. This is a labor of love and a product of art. In a world full of "paint-by-numbers" copy cat games that try to emulate success, Fran Bow dares to be different, ignores convention, and succeeds in carving out a place for itself in the hearts of those who play it.
Developer went quiet. There's no excuse for such behavior.

Have been using this product for a year. Fast, reliable and very easy to learn.
I can have my various tablet/phone devices sitting on my desk and at the click of a button can see my app instantly running on all of them. This alone is worth the price of admission.
Even if c++ and basic are not you language of choice you could not get a better product to prototype your app.
Each new release provides meaningful improvements in the product not token "patches" and the support forum will give you informed answers to your questions.
I have used a LOT of development environments and can honestly say that you cannot go past this one. 10/10 for me!
What I like about AGK2 is that it is great for quick and easy prototyping but also for creating complete games without loosing focus on finishing a game which in my opinion does happen often when using big triple A engines. Besides that, AGK has a very active and helpfull forum.
Some cool stuff from AGK2 I enjoy:
supporting the main mobile platforms: iOS and android
Recently added: HTML5 support
two levels of coding you can choose from (basic or c++ for building native)
both 2d and 3d support
very easy implementation of iap and adds (ios and android)
ios gamecenter and google play games
also runs on the rapsberry Pi, how cool is that!
In short: AGK2 is cool!
I've been using AGK since the first version, and have grown very fond of it over the years. It lets me develop games organically and deploy and test on pretty much any device or computer I have. There's even a free version of AGK for Raspberry Pi, and recently HTML5 deployment was added. The 3D commands have also had a major makeover, more formats are supported, 3D physics, anti-alias, shaders, animation etc.
The IDE is very much improved since version 1 as well as compile times and Android/IOS deployment. Really it's my favourite language to write games in, I don't have to worry about only targeting PC or being too dynamic with screen resolutions - these aren't problems anymore.
So if you're looking for a game development language that doesn't expect you to learn C++ first, something to just get stuck into and make your game, then try AGK - it keeps game development fun and accessible while still providing access to mobile marketplaces and other platforms like Mac and Linux. It's also very easy to learn and has a great community behind it.
This game is cool
Fun ship building, extremely logical and deep, simulation feature is, interesting...
I've been playing this since 2013, and it is quite a project! Lots of nostalgia, as it captures the original RA feel quite well!
The engine is super easy to use, very intuitive and as constantly getting updates improving visuals, performance, features, ease of use. This is one of the few digital products out there that I can say without a doubt is community driven. The devs constantly trawl the forums reading suggestions/ bug reports etc and the bigger the cry for the feature is then the sooner it gets implemented. the assets alone that come with it far exceed the quality you would expect at such a jaw dropping price, they are all very professional and detailed. on top of this the forums contain thousands of free high quality models, media and scripts as well, The great thing about Game Guru is that it's constantly getting better and I have no doubt that one day relatively soon it can sit up there beside the show stealer engines in terms of features, mechanics etc yet far exceed them in terms of its ease of use.
The bottom line is if you are interested in game development of any sort or are looking for a way in, this is the product for you. The price is unbelievable. The assets and media that come with it are worth 100 times that price on their own. The features it has and will get are out of this world. Just as a brilliant artist can make a masterpiece in windows paint or a sculptor can make beautiful figures from play-dough. With Game-Guru, the only limit is your imagination.
Thanks for all you've given us Lee and the team!!
From the heights of potential and of much praise, to something whose developers condemn the very people advising them of their wrongdoings, proclaiming their own players at fault for not adapting, and in spite of the condemnation of such a lousy recent update, all they'll do is tweak it and add onto it, blaming us players for the prestated fault. I'm sorry, I'm not fond of adapting to a bed of nails at night, nor people who say they listen, but only if it's a one-sided conversation in their favor("quality of life" voting system, wink wink*flipped bird*). I had so much fun at one time, making custom robots in creative ways and duking it out with others, but that was many, many updates ago. They've done it before, and they've done it again after the main update everybody is ragging upon, with the armor update. They flip the main mechanics of the game about like a yo-yo and expect us to deal with it. What we hold dear also means nothing to them, proven with the removal of megas, and the addition of shotguns. Now you'll never have to worry about actually spending effort, creativity, time, or any intelligent ingenuity! Just money(go figures, eh?)! Just grab a couple high-tier legs, a couple shotguns, perhaps a blink module and some rechargers, then slap a couple armor cubes on, or maybe a flak! You'll win every time until the matchmaker forces you to lose twenty games in a row(gee, 'fair', right?!)! This game is not what it was, and not in a good way. It didn't change into something of worth or equal value, it mutated into an abomination lead by minds beyond a point of any sane return.
Also, IndieDB, make it so new people can rate below two, as This game deserves it. I've also seen it plummet on the rankings from about 26 to 34. Wanna bet the developers still will pay us no heed, and if they do, they'll be obnoxiously condescending?
This game neglects the point of Slenderman games. It's not okay to give out a Slender clone two years after its release and it's not okay to give out a Slender clone that doesn't even do justice to the original game. You have to find pages in one of the worst asset store buildings. The game doesn't even make an attempt to connect the totally pointless houses. Some have interiors too, but it's meaningless, because the game design is so flawed. I had to climb a building in an elaborate way, yet there was no reward on the top, while there were several ammo parts on the ground just placed there randomly. You start off with two weapons for some reason and later you find an asset store AK-47 which seems to do less damage than the pistol and then an ax, that does absolutely nothing. The main enemy just walks towards the player and you can shoot it down. It's not scary, it's not fun, it's not dynamic or something unseen or even cool. It's just bad.
I was going to give it two stars, if there was a way to complete the game, but after some time, I was still unable to find at least four pages and the key to an arbitrary location, that was there for a plot filler I guess.
All in all, don't try it.
Everyone should play it.
Amazing long term project with a lot of effort shown.
This game is extremely fun, I have already played for over 24 hours, it hasn't been out that long. Do not judge it for having little content and for it being kinda like minecraft. It has some very similar features but is still only in pre-alpha and has many updates to come! I can't wait for the weather and NPC update!
