Mario bros. game engine

So I searched the internet for a mario bros. game engine and something called GameMaker kept popping up with hello game engine.

Has anyone used gamemaker? Would you be willing to tell of you experience with it?

It's a drag and drop game editor with very basic scripting elements for the "Advanced users". I use it time to time to do some prototyping on concepts but that is about it. I also wouldn't call game maker a Game Engine, because in reality it is a drag and drop game maker.

You can produce some decent quality games but it will give you no where near the control you have when coding it.

So basically you won't be doing much coding in it(If any at all) but it can produce some nice little games and can be helpful for prototyping game ideas or certain features to see if they would be fun or not.

That is my opinion at least.

I've used GameMaker and it's not half bad. It's really easy to use, and there's a bunch of tutorials on the site. Try checking out the game Spelunky. From what I hear it was made in GM
hmmm, so I gather it is something fun to play with but to be taken too seriously.
I wouldn't take it seriously either.
