Hi @Arsh Panesar, I doubt anyone with the experience to give useful advice will message you - many of us only give advice publicly, as that way it can potentially help many people rather than just you!

If you post what you're looking for advice on here I'm sure you'll get plenty of responses though! :)

Completely agree with him! Just tell us about your game idea and together we'll try to help you as well as we know.

Generic advice: make a prototype with reduced levels, placeholder graphics, etc. and you'll find out whether

  • your idea is good
  • your game engine is suitable for your idea
  • you are actually capable of designing a shoot'em up

Even if your prototype is a failure, a lot of the experience obtained this way would be relevant for a different game idea, and at worst you'd learn how to turn out prototypes efficiently.

Don't worry about that part.  Often times, even professional game designers don't really know if their idea is worth pursuing or not.

If you need a game design try one of the drag and drop programs like construct 2/3 at least what everyone else pointed out you will learn something.
