Attack of the Crimson Marauders is an arcade shoot em' up, with a nice old school vibe. What's even better; you can play with a friend! Game features 10 stages, and two modes. In story mode you can buy new ships and other upgrades. Gamepads are natively supported. "For a long time, the frontier of Beta Globulon Romulon has been in peace. But then; suddenly from nowhere, the Crimson Marauders showed up. And what a show they made. Luckily, you've just finished repairing your Gryphon light fighter (don't mention it's the surplus model), and are ready to take on a job. The Crimson Marauders were once banished to the desolate lava planet of Pandora. Rumour has, it was becuase of some unfortunate accident involving a rubber duck and a former politicians daughter. But why have they returned now? Is there something more sinister at work? And more importantly; do you really care about the backstory?"

Thank you!

By the way, controls can be set, at least to a degree, by editing config.ini. Details about this are in the help.pdf file located in the main game directory.

It's a rather clunky system, but needs to be this way for now becuase of how Game Maker Studio works.

Doo'h!! Alright I see it now. I'll be sure to refer to that in the future when me and my sister play this again.
