Celestial Raid is a vertical shmup created using GameMaker Studio. It is a blend of old-school shmup with occasional bullet-hell elements. This game is a prototype and it can be finished in a short time (roughly 30-45 minutes). 

The SWARM, an army of drones led by a rogue A.I., seeks out the Terrans and attempts to destroy them. You are an elite pilot being tasked to eliminate it's leader in their HQ and rescue the Terrans!

Nice game. One question do u place the enemies automatic with waves or manually?

Thanks! I used both. But mostly manually to avoid repetition.

I am trying to make a game in this style, last question

 you made the player walk up with the bg or enemies down?

That's a good question. The player stays and the enemies are spawned outside the screen and move in. They are independent of the bg.

Great game that brings back the fun of retro shmup, looking forward to sequel!
