Shoot 'em Up Construction Kit is more of a utility than a game. It allows the user to create a huge variety of top down shooters with a simple set of utilities allowing the player to draw, animate and move all of the games sprites, create sound effects and backgrounds for many levels, and set up games rules.

The package comes complete with 4 games already made on it, to demonstrate the techniques involved. These include: "Slap and Tickle" (set in space), "Outlaw" (a wild west game) "Transputer Man" (with a strong sci-fi setting) and "Celebrity Squares".

Battle Ball

After a wave of people attempting to sell SEUCK-coded games to commercial companies, programmer Stoo Cambridge attempted to do so himself. He coded Battle Ball using a slightly modified version of SEUCK to create something which had only superficial differences from the standard. It was sold to Power House but they folded before its release. Cambridge was paid however. The game was lost until being recovered in 2014; it is now available via the Games That Weren't website.
