Tony Forster has some very interesting examples

I have converted the following examples by Larry to Game Maker versions 5
In the process I added a few features to some of the examples and corrected the odd bug. A nice range of simple Game Maker 4 examples use the conversion program to convert to GM5 and open with a copy of GM 5.3A (3.4 MB) Link added March 16, 2005

Welcome to Game Maker Games, a site devoted to Game Maker, the superlative game creation program by Mark Overmars (you can download Game Maker here).
This is the home of the Monster Game Archive, which we try to make the most complete listing of Game Maker creations available. And we have many other things here as well.
So stay a while...stay forever >:)! http://www.gamemakergames.com/
The incredible machine is a game I have created for the first official GM competition. The goal was to make a game with a limited set of given resources without the possibility to add new resources to the game. This game won the 6th place. This game is available as open source and executable. http://games.simondonkers.com/index.php?mode=games
Welcome to my PhD homepage, which contains information about myself and my research into the educational potential of computer games. However, the main body of this site is devoted to providing free information and resources for teaching children how to make computer games in clubs and schools. http://www.gamelearning.net/
The following games were created by students of Haileybury College, Edrington campus, Berwick Victoria Australia. They were created with Gamemaker 5.0 http://online.haileybury.vic.edu.au/sites/edrington/computerclub/index.html
These examples have been written to help others learn how to do various things with GameMaker. Most of these were written to answer one or more questions posted in the GameMaker forums. These may not be the best way to do what they are doing, but they might help you. Feel free to make use of anything you find here in your own games.
Game Maker has been written to make it easier for people to design and make their own computer games. Though you may not be able to make games like Quake (they take teams of programmers years to make), you can still make games that are lots of fun to play. Plenty of people love to play Tetris, Pacman and other simple platform, puzzle or shooting games. These are the style of game that you will be able to make using Game Maker
An example is a bare-bones program, containing just enough code or actions to get the desired effect. You are expected (read: I made it for you to...) to study the code, or if you don't feel like studying, to copy it or build your game from the example.
