    Nice thread. I am not very familiar with the shmup genre, but I think Grid Wars should be added, that helped tide me over till the DS Geometry Wars release.

    Gambia, The
    Awesome, thank you! That other "List of Free Shooters" thread had me insta-clicking, hoping it was about shmups.
    Glad to see I'm not the only person around here hoping for a genre revival. Hey, classic point-and-click adventures came back...

    All the Kenta Cho games are gems, Torus Trooper and rRootage being my favorites. Warning Forever is a classic. End Effector definitely one of the best shmups with 3D graphics.

    Also, added videos.

    There are so many shareware shmups, how could we possibly be aware of what you're hinting towards?

    EDIT: What the fuck happened to the post.
