IMPORTANT: I suggest using this engine with a CLEAN project and adding your content to that maintaining the structure. The engine can be added to your project, but this is more difficult
The perfect engine for top-down games. Handles movement, collision and basic sprite animations.
Get the demo here! https://www.dropbox.com/s/y4m0enuuprpajul/Smooth%20Topdown%20Movement%20Engine.zip?dl=0
Each script and event is documented to ensure you can use this engine to suit your needs.
The README script takes you through all the steps required to work it.
NOTE: Tested on Game Maker 2.1
CHANGELOG: v1.0.1 - Corrected the way sprites are updated in the animation controller v1.0.2 - Added Superhot-like slow-motion to the engine v2.0.0 - Re-wrote most of the engine to improve efficiency, improved slow-motion (player is now unaffected by slow-mo), made engine modular, added true top-down, updated character sprites
