    Shmup, I presume. Well, um, Gradius FTW.

    Invader is an excellent vertical scroller & Gradius Galaxies is an excellent side scroller

    You should also check out two homebrew games: Vulkanon & Bullet Hell
    IMO they're better than any of the official games.

    There are also some crappy shmups like the Robotech game. I'd avoid that though.

    ...there's one more that I used to have...but I've forgotten it now and I don't think it was particulally good..

    EDIT: It's called Phalanx and it's a mediocre side scroller

    EDIT: Also, if your definition of shmups extends to run n' gun games you should try Metal Slug Advance, Gunstar Super Heroes & Astro Boy.

    Well, I don't know of any specifically developed for the GBA, but... there's an excellent PCE emulator available, and the PCE had some great shmups (but as I've seen you over at gp32x you probably know of them already)...
