Description



Scrolling shooters are a very
popular type of arcade action game, and are also rather
easy



to create with a package
like




Game Maker



. In this tutorial we will
make such a game and,



in the process, learn a
number of aspects of




Game Maker



, in particular the use
of



variables. In a scrolling
shooter the player controls an object, for example a
plane,



spaceship, or car, which
moves over a scrolling background. Obstacles appear on the



background that must be
avoided and enemies appear that must be shot. Often bonus



objects appear that can be
picked up for addition benefits. During the game the
number,



variety, and strength of the
enemies increases making it harder and harder to survive.
