Game Maker Lite 8.1
One of the easiest programs to make your own games or even programs!
Such a compiler is Game Maker Lite. This software can be used by beginners and professionals alike, since it sports a fun and friendly environment that allows users to manufacture simple or complex games without the requirement of prior programming experience.
All steps are done through a drag-and-drop technique. Simply provide the software with the command you wish to be executed, and it shall perform it as requested. But if you are keen on learning a gaming programming language, then Game Maker Lite can be switched to Advanced mode.This will allow you to go through more difficult settings and learn a trick or two about how to code a game.
With simple options in easy mode you can create sprites, sounds, backgrounds, object, and rooms - everything a simple game needs to come to life! More experienced users can also play with paths, scripts, fonts, and time lines, in order to give that extra spark to your own game. Build it in 2D or 3D. Once you created an executable, you can choose to publish your new game online, and share it with the rest of the world.
One small disadvantage of Game Marker Lite is that it uses plenty of system resources. In addition, some first-time users may experience difficulties even in easy mode, if they are not patient enough to perform a "game test".
In conclusion, Game Maker Lite is an excellent software for users who want to build games, or learn a new programming language. It's a reliable choice for game enthusiasts who want to introduce themselves in the world of programmers.

What's New in version 8.0
- Text splash screens can no longer show images. However, web splash screens have been added that can show full html documents with images, etc.
- A number of changes have been made to the functions related to sprite and background resources. This is due to the fact that Game Maker uses a completely new mechanism for these resources. If your game uses a lot of calls to functions that load or save image resources on the fly you are strongly recommended to keep using the old version 7.0 for that game.
