gikoparo

8.31.2007



this game would technically be a clone of a parody of gradius. gikoparo is a parodius clone, a game made by konami as a humorous version of gradius, which was also made by konami. this game plays very similarly, although like mose clones, things from other games are added in as well. this game adds a few things from r-type as well as one that i think i reminiscent of cho aniki. the sprites are all goofy, from giant chickens to ferris wheel bosses. i think the cats are supposed to be 2chan board cats. a good solid game, and it is a flash game as well. you have to open the main file in a browser to play. a really well done and fun clone. download here.

this is one of the more simple shmups i have played. technically its not even a shmup because you dont shoot. this is just a little tiny bullet dodging game. the bullets come from all directions and have an elastic pattern where they will bounce back and forth. a simple yet challenging game. download here.

this game is considerable more high quality than most of the games ive previously featured. this is a fully rendered shooter, based on Azumanga Daioh characters, with several elements of ikaruga thrown in. instead of absorbing bulleds, enemies drop stars that you use to fire extra homing projectiles. a well made, fun game. download here.

b system.


another pseudo darius clone, this is the equivalent of a darius boss arena. familiar konami powerup system, giant robotic sea creature bosses, and slightly more pattern based bullets. this is a fun game to practice your gradius and darius skills. one thing to note, you have to change the controls before you can even navigate the menu. also, the order of the controls is up,down,left,right,A,B,C. the other three don't really matter. download here.

this is an interesting shooter with ascii based art, mostly of 2ch cat images. the bosses are mostly floating heads. the game has surprisingly complex bullet patterns, as well as fairly smooth controls. download here.

dote.


i cannot recall what this game is called. but wow. this game is unlike most other shmups. not because of the mechanics, as they are fairly similar. a button for shoot, a button for bomb, and basic movement. the thing that sets this game apart is the graphics. super cartoony, surprisingly detailed pixel art, fairly humorous sprites, and a truly massive amount of enemies. there can be several hundred on screen at once. in this game, you dont dodge bullets, you dodge and kill enemies. you can even kill your own team mates, and if they hit you you get damaged. the screenshots were messed up so all i have is a cutscene still. you shoul ddownload this game anyway, and experience it for yourself. download here.

g-type.


combining 2 of the most popular shooters of all time into one game, g-type takes the gradius powerup system and the r-type weapon system and combines them with a mix of sprites from both games into one great shmup. the levels are well done and i think all of the graphics are from either game. this game even has the gradius easter island head level. a great shmup. download here.

miyako.


this is another pseudo shmup. this game is called miyako, and is similar to space invaders. you have a ship at the bottom that con move left and right, and super pixelated aliens hover above you. they do not shoot at you however. the boject of this game is to get the highest score possible. when you shoot an enemy, it drops a smiley face. if you shoot that smiley face, it multiplies. you can shoot it several times to make hundreds of smiley faces. when you pick up these smiley faces, your multiplier increases, as well as your points. the point value of the smiley faces skyrockets fairly fast. your score can go as high as hundred of thousands of trillions of points. a nice little gameto kill time and see how high you can get your score. download here.

reflex.


this a demo version of a new siter skain game. normally, i wouldnt give a demo any chance at all. but this is the absolutely most epic demo i have ever played. not only do you get to play through about six levels, the artwork is more beautiful than ever, the gameplay is fluid and adds a new shield option, and the best part is the last playable level. it fully shows off the siter skain layered levels. you move below and above a huge battalion of ships. the boss fight has a showdown with the lead battleship. you have to play it to understand. download here. and thats an order.

asougi.


another clone of one of my favorite arcade shooters, esp ra de. this game is very similar, in that you have a person flying around instead of a ship. you fight other people with powers as well as machines. there are power ups that enemies drop that can enhance your abilities as well. the bullet patterns in this game are very good though they are pretty difficult. this is a large download, but it is worth it. download here.

this game is a java based danmaku where you use your mouse to move your ship in between bullets. the only way to attack is by grazing the bullets, causing you to fire. a pretty fun and extremely small game. download here.

for those of you who know about dreamcast or playstation 2 games may have heard of a game called rez. it was a shooter that has a musical aspect involved. this game is similar, in that the music is enhanced when you destroy an enemy. this makes for some pretty cool effects when you kill several enemies in a row. this game is sort of 2.5D, tilting the generic vertical shooter into a straightforward isometric shooter. the graphics are sort of a cross between 3D models and particle clouds. also, don't let the fire touch the bottom of the screen. a pretty awesome game download here.

reversed

8.04.2007



woo hoo for eternal shooters. this game is called reversed, and is a shooter by someone who speaks english(gasp). this game has nice colorful graphics and speedy gameplay. you have a bomb gauge that charges when you kill enemies, so if you can keep from getting hit for at least a few seconds, you still have a chance. also, this is one of the best gamemaker games ive played in a long time. not quite a manic shooter, but still a good way to practice dodging fast bullets. especially if YGS2000 makes you cry. download here.

this is another strictly boss fighting game. this game takes the reflection game mechanic and changes it a little. when you have reflection enabled, which you can tell by if you have two small squares in front of you, press z to reflect bullets that are close to the squares. depending on the level of boss you are fighting, the bullets may or may not reflect back. if you get hit, you will lose the reflection ability and revert to shooting bullet streams. if you get hit when you don't have reflection, you die. you only have one life, so use it well. download here.

hsh

8.02.2007


a lot of these games have japanese names that i dont know. so i will often use the filename or foldername of the game. anyway, this game hsh, is a little different than most of the other shooters that ive found. instead of dodging enemy bullets, you dodge your own. you are in a small square room, and you shoot bullets that bounce off of the walls. if you dont shoot bullets for long enough, you will be forced to shoot a huge amount of super fast, really hard to dodge bullets, so you should keep shooting often. the bullets you shoot can survive one bounce, and after that they dissapear. this game gets difficult when there are a lot of bullets coming from a lot of different directions. simple, but difficult. the graphics are very pixelated and retro, and give it a nice feel. try to see how long you can last. download here.

YGS2000 (虫姫さま)

8.01.2007




now for a really challenging one. this game is called YGS2000 (虫姫さま), i believe. this game is similar to one of kenta cho's games, rRootage, in that it is just one ship against a boss. the focus of these games is for building your dodging skills by playing through massively difficult bullet patterns at different levels of difficulty. this game features 65 different basic patterns, each with 99 levels of difficulty. you can choose to either have bombs or lives, as in having one more bomb gives you one less life. the object of the game is to stay alive, as you cannot attack. the bombs only clear the screen of bullets. some of the bullet patterns if not all are based on other arcade game patterns, the 65th pattern being from a cave shooter called Mushihimesama. the graphics are not anything to speak of, but the massive amount of patterns to try more than make up for it. this game is a fairly small download, and could really help you build up your dodging skills. highly reccomended. download here.
