S.E.U.C.K (short for Shoot 'Em Up Construction Kit) or SEUCK is a utility/application that can help people create their own shoot 'em up games, but with limitations. The editor allowed people to design their own players, enemies, sounds and also front end text. The players could even design the vertical scrolling maps and also create their own enemy attack waves and save a standalone game on to disk or tape.
