A downloadable Shmup

*CONTROLS: Keyboard: S (for special), D (for defense), F (for fire), and the arrow keys. R will reset the game back to the title screen, and Escape will exit the game. . Also has controller support, although I've only personally tested it with an Xbox One S controller. Back will restart the game, but there is no button on the controller (currently) that will exit the game completely. Enter on keyboard will pause, as will start on the controller. 

Cyberspace Shoot'em Up is an arcade style shooter made with GameMaker Studio 2.  Each ship is an homage to a franchise or play style from shooter history. I really hope you enjoy this one level demo. I've worked really hard on it! Please send positive feedback and/or constructive criticism. If you encounter any bugs or crashes, please let me know so I can fix them. Thank you and enjoy! Current build is Windows only. My apologies to anybody left out.

Thank you! It should be working now. I apologize if it isn't. Please let me know. I hope you enjoy the game! I welcome any feedback. Thanks!

I like the stretchy number effect! 😁

Thanks! Yeah, the binary code that you blast out of enemies was one of my favorite aspects of it. I figured that enough people had done space shooters, so I went with a "cyber space" theme, and thought about what kind of enemies you'd fight and what kind of debris and explosions their ships would produce. All the enemies are computer themed, such as the ! ships, the www, and settings icons. The mini boss is a USB drive and the boss is a graphics card. This was really fun to work on, and I plan on doing more with it. I just needed to stretch my legs a little.
