    you mean shmups?

    i always go for either Iridion II or phalanx

    i kind of like sigma star saga too, though some people hate it.

    you can also rock shmups for NES or the Original GB/GBC using an emulator like PocketNES or Goomba.

    well there's alien hominid--I love that game.

    As far as a bullets-from-hell, Vulkanon is free and about as hellish as it can get.

    I'm surprised nobody's mentioned Invader yet. It's not as good as the first two I mentioned, but it's certainly better than what happened to the big names when they got ported to gba.

    I don't know why but TG16 shooters never left me with a warm fuzzy feeling. I guess I should cringe for the flame war, but I feel the shooters felt too primative, as did the system in general, but especially the shooters. I guess Image Fight was okay, but it still left me with that 8-bit feeling. It was just a wierd time for hardware.

    Actually most of the GBA port-shooters leave me with a similar feeling. Like the hardware was being seriously underused. It's a shame treasure never put out a vehicle shooter for the system. Their games tend to be nothing short of incredible and a shooter should leave an 'over the top pretty' feeling in its wake.

    Namco's 50th anniversary collection has a great version of Galaga. such a classic shooter.
