  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. Highway Fighter

    Highway Fighter is a very obscure precursor to Highway Hunter, a shareware game from Russia published by Safari and later by Epic MegaGames.
    Although the game offers the same plot, similar graphics and gameplay - blast various baddies while staying on the road - it has some noticeable differences. First, the weapon/shield/score counter at the bottom of the screen has a different look, and is easier to see. Although unit graphics is almost identical to Highway Hunter, some levels are different. The overall game is also much more difficult than Highway Hunter - so much so, in fact, that it seems as though OIS designed this game primarily for hard-core action gamers, only to "tone down" the difficulty level later before releasing it overseas. Although it remains a very obscure game, Highway Fighter is all in English. So if you like Highway Hunter, you will definitely enjoy this precursor that is much more challenging. I gave up after level three, but I am sure veteran gamers would have no trouble blasting endless enemies. Recommended!

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  11. Speed Freak

    As Speed Freaks blaze through the abandoned tunnels underneath the crumbling cities, tunnel mutants and gang members fall at their gunfire and are splattered under their electron-charged gliders. Their speed bikes give them a sense of power that no illegal nerve drug could ever replace. In Blackeye Software's latest shooter, you play the role of a notorious "Tunnel Queen" - a Speed Freak. Shoot and boost your way through hordes of hideous mutants who inhabit the speed tunnels, and go for the high-score.
