This game is only avaible for Windows.

A playable demo can be found here :


This game was developed using Game Maker 8.1 instead of the more recent Game Maker Studio.

This is because of the limitations of GM:S regarding external files, the modified events making it harder to assign variables to instances via creation code, and the fact it costs 99$.

Therefore, you may run into (very minor) issues while playing the game :

I double-clicked the exe file and now Windows wants me to install "DirectPlay". Should I accept ?

Yes you should.

DirectPlay is a deprecated DirectX component, dedicated to online gaming.

Super Glovekid has no online functions but the Game Maker engine apparently requires DirectPlay to function.

This is not a virus, an adware or anything like that : it's 100% safe.

Install it and the game will start.

I played this game using a gamepad but now it's running really slow. Is there any fix to this ?

This is a bug related to the Game Maker 8.1 engine.

There's not much I can do to fix this.

Restart your computer and the game should run at 60fps again.

I might upload a keyboard-only version of the game to use with XPadder or JoyToKey in the future in case somebody needs it.
