Amazingly (for someone with as little money as me) I could go on and on about what you can get up to with this program. It's brilliant (and GBH can quote me on that, as long as they chuck 50p my way).

Was mich am meisten begeistert, ist die Benutzerfreundlichkeit. Selbst wenn man kaum einen Blick in das Handbuch riskiert, kann man in kürzester Zeit ein lauffähiges Spiel schreiben. Und es gibt wohl kaum ein schöneres Erlebnis, als wenn das selbstgemalte Sprite die ersten Schritte auf dem Bildschirm macht. SEUCK ist ein Spielebaukasten im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes und keine verkappte Programmiersprache. Hier kann wirklich jeder, der ein wenig Zeit und Kreatität investiert, professionell aussehende Action-Spiele schreiben.

It's easy enough to use and rather engrossing once you get going. Whether you eventually write a game or not becomes immaterial - there's plenty of fun to be gleaned from being creative instead of destructive, and as such it comes highly recommended.

Wenn Ihre kreative Ader sich jetzt angesprochen fühlt, können Sie das Construction Kit ruhigen Gewissens kaufen. Es gibt zur Zeit kein besseres Programm dieser Art auf dem Markt.

Vor gut einem Jahr sorgte die C 64-Version des "Shoot 'em up Construction Kits" für Wirbel. Noch nie gab es ein so leicht zu bedienendes Programm, um Actionspiele selber zu machen - ohne jegliche Programmierkenntnisse, versteht sich. Die Amiga-Umsetzung bietet leicht verbesserte Grafik (mehr Farben) und prima Digi-Sounds, aber ansonsten keine nennenswerte Unterschiede gegenüber dem Vorbild. Auf dem Amiga ist das Construction Kit trotzdem einmalig.

Of all the game creators that have appeared on various machines, SEUCK is without doubt the easiest to use and the one which will produce results fastest. Anyone can use it as no programming knowledge is needed. SEUCK is limited in the kind of game it can produce; but what it does, it does well.

SEUCK is itself a well thought out and designed game-creator's tool. If you've got an idea for a game, but don't have the programming skill to turn it into a reality, this is certainly one way to do it. And don't let anyone tell you it's cheating. Nearly every game produced these days is put together with routines culled from libraries of other games and even the best programmers have to use development tools - SEUCK just happens to be a very sophisticated one.

Much fun can be had with SEUCK, particularly when designing and animating enemies, and completing the creation of your very own game is highly rewarding. It's a shame that horizontally scrolling games aren't possible to allow more varied blasters to be made. This wouldn't be too bad a problem but at £29.99 SEUCK is quite expensive. Shoot- em-up fans will love it; others won't be as enthusiastic but should still consider it.

To an extend if you're interested in game design it's probably of some value to you none-the-less. Or maybe you're just a little egotistical and like other people playing your own funky creations. [Budget re-release]

Wer sich immer schon einmal in eine wilde Ballerei (egal wo und mit was oder gegen wen) auf seinem Amiga einlassen oder anderen Spiele-Freaks ein eigenes Spiel mit "eigenen Gesetzen" zukommen lassen wollte, ist mit diesem Programm bestens bedient. Also Phantasie einschalten, kreativität entfalten und loslegen.

It has got to be said straight from the start, however, that you're unlikely to ever produce a game that would be fit to be published using this utility, but if you're looking for a way to put your ideas into practice (or even just like having a fiddle with sprites and sound effects) then this could very well be the program for you.
