Nintendo's Game Builder Garage might not have taken off quite as much as the company would have hoped, but talented players are still busy creating some wonderful little games using the software's tech.
A prime example of this, if you'll excuse the pun, is Metroid Attack!, a game created by the folks behind YouTube channel, Looygi Bros. It's a shooting gallery minigame that tasks the player with blasting 50 Metroids; the fiendish enemies come flying at you in waves, and thanks to some clever programming, the wave patterns won't always be the same.
In the video above, the Looygi Bros. team takes us through a couple of stages of the game's development, from the initial concept to the final build. We're sure you'll agree that the impressive Samus and Metroid sprite work really makes the project feel complete, but the whole thing is supremely polished:
If you want to give it a go yourself, the Game ID is G 002 72C KTL.
Let us know if you manage to defeat all 50!
It's quite decent, given GBG's limitations.
Pretty neat and a nice showcase of what GBG can do.
Reminds me of a load screen quick mini game. That would be fun for that alone.
Oh wow, I love this great game maker,so many great games being made by this awesome program.
what a great little game, after playing I like looking at how the it was put together, my high score on this game is 17 so far!!
It is pretty cool. I love super Metroid. I actually like how the Metroids explode into 3d green blocks.
"It's a wonderful restaurant!"
The video was really well annotated… if that’s the right word. It was nice being taken through the development process.
@-wc- arrested development?
That scream is hilarious
Good effort! Agree with a previous comment, it's like a mini loading screen game.
Reminds me of an old Amiga 500 game - IK+ - that had a bonus round between karate matches that involved using a shield to deflect bombs. They'd roll in from left and right and bounce at different heights. You'd have to move the shield left or right and up or down.
I'm just going to casually drop a link to a video of a metroid game I made in game builder garage too haha
@-wc- I agree!
So this is Nintendo's version of dreams ?
I’ll take this moment to promote my own GBG creation. Thanks. 😊
