gmosse.pngIf you are using Game Maker to craft your shmup you should definitely have a look at GMOSSE - The Game Maker Open-Source Shmup Engine. Sounds pretty impressive, doesn't it? Well, it's pretty simple instead I'm afraid; not much more than an incredibly handy template that, as its creator puts it, provides Game Maker devs with some extra functionality, ideas, bits of code and, apparently, more.

Oh, and I'd expect some interesting updates if I were you.
