A downloadable game for Windows

press f1 in game to see a list of controls. I made this game back in 2011. Its full of spaghetti code and looks like garbage, but I'm still kind proud of it, haha. I had a lot of fun making it. I learned a lot while making it, And I still go back and play it from time to time. The old game maker site that it was uploaded to was taken down some time ago. A few people have requested that I put it up so they can play it, so hear it is. I fixed some of the bugs, but there are still plenty more in there, haha. I also added the source code for you to mess with if you like. You'll need a copy of Game Maker 8 or Game Maker Studio 1 to open the gmk files though. I don't think I'll ever finish this game, but it does have an end... kind of.  if you collect all three peaces of the triforce then go back to the old man, he will congratulate you for finding them.

can you make a version for MacOs?

I never got the MacOs export extension back in the day, and game maker 8 is no longer supported by yoyo games. The .gmk files are included with this download. I believe they can be opened by the Mac version of Game maker 8 if you can find one somewhere online... then they could be exported for Mac, or just played in the editor. Id do that, but I don't have a Mac.

You are Amazing!!!! Thank you for making this!! lol How did you make a 3d game in Gamemaker?


Determination! Haha, actually just lots of Youtube tutorials, then trial, and error.

Thank-you for uploading this game again, it used to be one of my favorites back on the sandbox!

Thank you for playing! Its good to hear from people who remember the old yoyo sandbox. Sweet, sweet nostalgia.
