  1. The Fourth Generation

    The Fourth Generation is a decent side-scrolling shooter from Webfoot that looks good, plays good, but unfortunately is too repetitive to go up against the likes of Gradius.
    The game can be played in either a single or two-player mode (hotseat), with mouse, keyboard, or joystick. You will be attracted by excellent VGA backgrounds that give good illusions of three-dimensional depth, and the wide variety of weapons and power-ups you can upgrade your ship with. However, enemy ship designs are far too repetitive, the "boss" ships are not much more inspiring, and the computer doesn't put up much of a challenging fight. If you are new to the shooter genre and want to try a decent shareware game, The Fourth Generation fits the bill-- for a little while until you find out how repetitive it is. A lackluster underdog, this one.

  4. Thunder Blade

    Thunder Blade (サンダーブレード Sandāburēdo) is an arcade, flight-based, third-person rail shooter originally released for video arcades in 1987. In the game, players control a helicopter to destroy enemy vehicles.
    The game was released as standard stand-up arcade cabinet that introduced the use of force feedback, as the joystick vibrates during gameplay. A sit-down unit was also released, replacing the force feedback with a seat that moves in tandem with the joystick.
    Versions of the game were later released for the Sega Master System, Amiga, Amstrad CPC, Atari ST, Commodore 64, DOS, MSX, TurboGrafx-16, Sharp X68000 and ZX Spectrum. The Nintendo 3DS remake was released as a 3D Classic in Japan on August 20, 2014, in North America and Europe on May 14, 2015, and in Australia on July 2, 2015.
    The game's plot and setting resembles the 1983 film and 1984 TV series of Blue Thunder. The player controls a helicopter using guns and missiles to destroy enemy tanks, helicopters, etc., to save his home country. Levels are in both a top-down or third-person perspective view. The boss levels are in the top-down view.

  6. Cho Ren Sha 68K (超連射68K)

    Cho Ren Sha 68K

    Cho Ren Sha 68K is a vertical scrolling shoot 'em up in which the player takes control of an unnamed spaceship to fight against a horde of enemy spacecraft on a giant and seemingly endless ring-shaped space station. The game features a loop system whereby after defeating the last boss of stage 0 in loops 1, 3, 5 and 7 the player starts at the beginning of stage 1 with an increase on the game’s difficulty level. The game features a total of seven stages and eight loops in total.
    One of the most notable aspects of Cho Ren Sha 68K is the power-up system. The game only features 3 types of items: Power-up! (which increases the ship's firepower up to four times), Bomber (which grants the player another screen-clearing bomb and can be stocked for a total of five bombs) and Shield, which gives the player an extra hit and if the ship gets hit by an enemy bullet, it emits a small shockwave that clears the screen of enemy bullets and weak enemies. Power-ups are carried by enemy carriers, distinguished by their red cockpit on the center and when destroyed, the power-up icons will appear in a small and harmless electrified ring and if the players takes one of the three, the other two will disappear. However, if the player manages to stay on the center of the ring for a very bried period of time, he will get all 3 at the same time. The power-up system of the game is said to be the basis of similar mechanics found in other dōjin titles such as Crimzon Clover and Fraxy.
    Another notable aspect of Cho Ren Sha 68K is the scoring system. Based on how close the player is to the enemy, the player will either get more or less points for doing so. After the ship is fully powered up, the power-up icons will grant only points until the player's ship gets destroyed, with the highest value being 25600 points. Depending on the number of lives, bombs and having an active shield, the player receives a determined score at the end of each stage. Staying in the electrified ring and getting all 3 power-up icons is an important maneuver for reaching high-score across multiple gameplay sessions.
    When the player reaches one million points, the shield power-up is replaced by a 1UP icon. The player has the option of either grabbing just the 1up or risk to stay within the electrified ring to grab all three items at the same time. Losing the 1up means that it will not appear again unless the player reaches another one million points in order to get another opportunity.
    Cho Ren Sha 68K has multiple settings on the configuration menu, however, by holding up for a few seconds, the player has access to a hidden configuration menu that are not available on the first menu.

  11. Highway Hunter

    The spiritual precursor to Safari's more famous shooter Tyrian, Highway Hunter is an addictive, knuckle-blistering shooter from obscure Russian developer Omega Integral Systems (OIS).
    The game puts you in control of an armed-to-the-hilt car instead of the more common spaceship. The gameplay is straightforward shooting mayhem: kill everything in sight and collect power-ups to prepare for the end-level boss. A wide variety of power-ups, enemies, and levels makes this a must-play for all shooter fans. Recommended, and also check out Highway Fighter, the 1993 spiritual "prequel" that is even more obscure than this game.

  12. Flew Fighter

    Flew Fighter

    Horrible Google translated Engrish:
    "Flew Fighter" is a vertical scrolling shooting game that you can play with six types of settings according to the skill of the player. The enemy's bullet has become a barrage system filling the screen. There are two kinds of game modes, "normal mode" and "SP mode", difficulty levels are three levels, and there are six types of play patterns depending on the combination of the two. By pressing [←] / [→] on the start screen, you can switch modes and difficulty sequentially (press repeatedly or long press if reaction is dull).
    "Normal mode" is an orthodox vertical scroll shooting game with a total of 6 stages (+ α) composition. "SP mode" consists of a boss character 's on parade somewhat across the scene where Zacochara appears. SP mode is one stage without stage division, but many enemies that do not appear in normal mode also appear. Both the normal mode and SP mode, the number of bosses appearing slightly varies depending on difficulty setting.
    The difficulty level can be selected from "NORMAL" "HARD" "ACTUAL HELL". NORMAL is the easiest, it's a handy difficulty as a barrage shooting shooter. HARD is a setting for those who are accustomed to NORMAL. The number of enemy bullets increases, and the attack speed of enemies also increases. ACTUAL HELL is a mode that can be said to be a barrage of storms, with more enemy bullets and increased speed. Besides, he also awaits a brutal true boss. Especially, the final battle of ACTUAL HELL is a difficulty without making a mistake even if it is a player who is good at barracks work.
    The operation corresponds to the keyboard and joystick. Move your aircraft with the cursor keys and shoot with 【Z】. [X] is "slow", while moving down, the moving speed of your own machine will decrease. [C] is bomb, you can fire as many as the number of bommarks displayed in the upper left of the screen.
    Bom gets all the enemy bullets on the screen to disappear at the moment of activation, and after a while it deals damage to surrounding enemies. When shot power is the maximum, the power of Bom will also increase. A certain period of time after the bomb burst and after its own machine is destroyed is invincible.
    If you hold down [Z] and [X] at the same time, the style of the shot changes to a wide type (widening forward a wide range) (a normal shot is a straight type that concentrates thermal power nearly directly in front). In many cases, straight type is easier to use, such as boss against boss, but wide type is easier to use when sweeping out Zako that flocks swarming while spreading sideways. The proper use of two types of shots is fundamental to the game.
    By taking power up items that appear when you kill a specific enemy, you can step up the power of the shot. The power of the powered up shot will not fall even if your opponent is destroyed or continually enemies.  Continuation times are also unlimited.

  13. Kirisame Blade 2

    KIRISAME BLADE 2 (Kurisame 2)
    【Caution! 】 Gamepad Ultra recommend
    Slash all of them !!
    Use a pair of "blades" equipped on your aircraft and a "hyper" system to strengthen yourself for a certain period of time and destroy enemy hordes!
    The game mode has three basic modes and mission mode. 
    Let's fight with the mode you like.
    COMBO ATTACK  Mode that kills enemies in succession and aims for high score by connecting combos. Make a combo with a new element combo boost!  SPEED ATTACK Simple mode in which the time at stage clearance is the score as it is. Let's quickly defeat the medium size aircraft and aim for QUICK DOWN BONUS. ARCADE MODE An arcade-like mode that chooses the order of the squad who sorts at the start of the game and clears all four stages in order. A bonus stage that can aim for a high score also occurs when clearing the stage. Is there something good if you clear it to the end? MISSION MODE It is a mode that freely chooses a short stage of all 24 + 1 faces to capture. As you clear, hidden elements will be lifted.

  14. Dragon Spirit

    At first glance, Dragon Spirit looks just like any other vertical shooters, except that you ride a dragon instead of a spaceship. Once you spend some time with the game, however, you will find many neat differences that set it apart from most shooters. Your goal is to go through 9 stages to rescue your sister and her maids from an evil demon called Zawel. When you start the game, you can breath only a puny single-shot fire blast, but you will slowly grow to become a three-headed flame breathing monster. Yes, you can grow heads in this game - just one of the neat power-ups you can find. Other power-ups include firepower increase, speed boost, and calling up two "ghost" dragons to help your cause. Along with power-ups, there are also "power-downs" - bad items that you must avoid, lest they drain your power, etc.
    The difficulty system in Dragon Spirit is one of the most innovative ones you'll come across in a shooter. Once you beat the demon Zawel, you can go on to play the game in the "Blue Dragon mode" which is the normal mode. If you lose this one, you play the "Gold Dragon mode" which is an easier, shorter mode. This makes the game fun to players of all skill levels.
    Yet another innovative feature of Dragon Spirit is when you rescue the maids at the end of each stage. If you have "fulfilled" certain things, the maid will be visible and can help you. Last but not least, Dragon Spirit is very intuitive and easy to play. The graphics is no match for the crisp graphics of the original arcade game, but it is more than adequate - and almost on par with the official Amiga conversion.

  19. Cash Invaders

    Review By HOTUD:
    In the crowded arena of Space Invaders clones (there must be hundreds of them floating around the WWW), Cash Invaders stands out from the rest with sheer size and playability.
    Inspired not only by Space Invaders but also by Psygnosis' Blood Money and other space shooters, * Cash Invaders* features a staggering amount of levels - 100 in all, plus 10 bonus levels. You shoot aliens to earn money, which you can use at the end of each level to buy power-ups. There is a large arsenal of weaponry, power-ups, and types of aliens, which means the game will sustain your interest for much longer than a typical Space Invaders clone. Smoothly animated ray-traced graphics and nice ship/alien design rounds off this fun underdog that you will come back now and again for some mindless fun. Highly recommended!

  22. Blood Money

    To cut it short: Everything that made the Amiga version of Blood Money one of the most enjoyable shoot'em ups ever is missing is this PC conversion.
    So what's left is a mediocre game-- the great soundtrack, graphics, and even fluid gameplay of the Amiga version is nowhere to be found here. What a pity. (You expected me to trash this, right?) Still, some might consider this a nice game if you love classic side-scrolling shooters in general.
    Everyone should download the Amiga ROM from some Amiga site and play it on an emulator, though, to see how good this game can get. Disappointing.

  24. Dawn Raider

    An okay top-down shooter from prolific Taiwanese developer SoftStar, Dawn Raider takes place in a futuristic world where the Earth is rife with civil wars that broke out among warring clans. The game won't dislodge Tyrian or even Silpheed from their lofty pillars of classic games in the genre, but it does offer a few hours of good ol' shooting fun where blasting everyting in sight is the only thing you need to know about. The enemies are fairly typical and somewhat boring-- you'll meet fighter planes, ground defense, and all manners of nasty planes that shoot homing missiles. The end-level bosses, though, are much more creative and very difficult to destroy.
    Overall, Dawn Raider may not knock anyone's socks off, but it is worth a few hours if you want to relieve some stress from the last few levels of Silpheed.
