Are you a creative Commodore 64 user who likes to make games using the Shoot Em Up Construction Kit or Sideways Scrolling S.E.U.C.K Engine or perhaps you have made a game you made many years ago using the editor, but want to jazz up the presentation and you cannot code?

The New Dimension is very proud to present to the S.E.U.C.K Title Screen Maker. A fun tool which can help you make cool new front ends and link them to your very own standalone games, created with S.E.U.C.K (Or perhaps your very own programs).  A manual PDF has also been included with  guidance on how to use this tool. , Side 3 of the disk image comes with some example games with the new front ends bolted onto the games.

Although you do not need any programming knowledge to use this utility. You will need a freezer cartridge, such as Action Replay/Retro Replay or equivalent.

It will not completely enhance your game with power ups, in game background animation, full boss explosion. shared scoring, linked players, etc, you would need to refer to SEUCK School Tips in achieving those and use $4566 for your new loop.
