That game's always intrigued me. I got interested in the zed-x because of that one and ant attack, then found stuff like batman and head over heels. Cool platform!

Hummmm.. I believe that you don't want to look at my GIANT ugly face anymore... Sad

Ok!...

From the creative mind of Simon Phipps, the designer of Rick Dangerous, came, in 1992, WolfChild, a frenetic action platformer with super detailed graphics and pretty cool music from Martin Iveson, creator of the original Tomb Raider musical score:

Just add something like
Code:
width="300px"
to the end of your image tags (assuming you're using HTML) and you'll be good Happy I'm a fan of the pics and I think they should stay. To show their worth, I've even edited your first post to include a matrix of all the videos (with the pics) that you've done so far. I've had to leave the non-pic videos out.

With that being said, I've gone through and re-coded your posts to resize the images. All you need to do is this:

Code:

<img src="[URL TO IMAGE]" size="300px">


Here's a valid example:

Code:

<img src="https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-UJN2UKDI8KU/VFwKY_3W1DI/AAAAAAAAF7E/RzOTE_XR1RY/w1061-h597-no/trials_fusion-thumbnail-pixelthing.jpg" width="300px">

I actually thought the game was made pretty well. It seems pretty complex to make. However not knowing anything yet I am saying I think it looks pretty smooth and playable.

Another nice one. Thanks.

Just to note, I'm trying to continually update the first post in this thread with the updated videos (clicking each thumbnail will jump you to that Youtube page). I've ONLY been adding the ones with title pictures, though. So there are a few at the very start of the thread that aren't linked there. Figure it'll be good for anybody new to the thread.
