UPDATE 29/08/2016: Fixed a bug with the falling blocks which could soft lock the game, and added support for Arrow Keys + ZXC controls

After seeing *widely disliked recent game* I thought it would be an interesting creative challenge to make a game in that style. MangoMan is the result after about 3 weeks of work.

You can jump and shoot. Includes 1 level, 1 boss battle and 2 difficulty settings.

There are Mangos.

Let's get real for a sec

*sits on the chair the wrong way like a cool teacher with very little regard for the rules*

Good little megaman-like game,

i finished the game in 10min on my first try (normal difficulty),

and i tought it was quite enjoyable for a free game,

the mango aesthetics were nice, thank you !

this game is really awesome

A bit simple and the jumping felt heavy at first(drops like a Belmont), but I enjoyed this game overall. Would love to see what a full length version would be like. "We have to defeat the evil Salsa Army!"

Have a video:

I played it till i got to the part with the blades on the walls. Too hard for me to survive so i gave up. I feel this game was too difficult for me. Some people like games to be difficult, but not really for me.

Little update: Added ZXC + Arrow Key Controls + fixed the falling block bug <3

How do you change the controles so that you can use a gamepad?

Softlocked the game by having a disappearing platform reappear on top of me.

verry good game made by one guy, ive tryed to make games in game maker, and its verry heavy to make something for your own, good job!, and i would recomend put arrow keys + z x, its more easy because the hands are sepatated, and there are a lot of games with those controls like Undertale, but it is your decision, GL.

really into the look and level design. played a little slow. Hope you keep working on it!

Please for the love of god use ARROWS + Z X

Worst keys ever for Keyboard! Why set such horrible keys? Can't even be reconfigured for custom keys. Why not use arrow keys for movement, z for jump and x for weapon like most games? Game makers need to setup some standard.

As in Megaman but Mango and with a graphic design rosily sweetened.
