I created this game as part of a video tutorial about how to program a game in Flash that can use the Universal Level Editor. SHMUP's are one of the simplest games you can make, and this one was thrown together in only 2 hours. If I was serious about making a shooter, I'd probaby try to create something more like R-Gear (a homebrew game for the PSP) But in spite of its simplicity, I still tried to create interesting levels by incorporatnig Sonic-the-Hedgehog style branching.
