A GameMaker:Studio source file with a lot of systems in place, letting you either easily create a danmaku/scrolling shooter game with minimal effort by using the existing resources, or expand on a powerful extensible framework to kickstart your massive shmup project. There are versions for both GMS1 and GMS2, tested using the latest stable release for each.


  • Use simple queue-based scripting systems for enemy behaviors, stage sequencing,  and cutscenes!
    • Easily make cutscenes!
    • Easily make new enemies, all you need is to draw a sprite and set some variables like HP and loot!
    • Or even have the same types of enemies in different waves attack with different bullet patterns or movement!
  • More complex state-based system for bosses:
    • adjust bullet pattern and movement individually!
    • Automatic transition between different attack patterns at indicated HP levels, including explosion effects!
    • Bosses handles everything automatically, including special effects, triggering cutscenes, and drawing their HP bar! Making bosses has never been this easy!
    • Attacks can be flagged as "spellcards" to get a special animation displaying their name!
  • Player character system intended for multiple playable characters, and easily extensible!
    • Players have separate main, powerup and option attacks! Each attack can be customized with different attack patterns, sound effects and delays to control every little detail with just one line of code!

    • Options system that let you control an arbitrary number of turrets following you around, putting Gradius to shame!
    • Screen-clearing bombs that make you temporarily invincible!
    • Combo system that rewards good play with massive bonuses!
  • Comes with two example playable characters with vastly different attacks, two example bosses with unique spellcards and attack patterns, and two example stages with different enemy layouts!
  • Features leaderboards system out of the box! Name entry is automatic on Game Over or beating the game, and every leaderboard entry indicates both player name, score, game progression and what character was used!

Demo is no longer up?

Just checked, it should still be up... it's at the bottom of the page, after the "buy now" button you should see a "download demo" button.

Tried logging out and downloading them anonymously just to make sure it's not just because I'm the file owner, and I could download and run both the EXE version and the ZIP version.

If you can't run the EXE properly, try downloading the ZIP version, it's a bit more compatible.


Thanks i'm able to download it now. Chrome was just being goofy.

Glad to hear it's resolved!

Yeah, Chrome can be a bit overprotective when it comes to downloading stuff, especially from indie sources. I personally use Firefox... but that's mostly because Chrome uses so much system resources it lags some of my other programs :P
