    Hi all, basically i love side/forward scroll-shooter games. I have a 3 in 1 and only able to find Iridion 2 and Darius R for it, I found it with Gamespot GBA reviews. I haven't found any on the NDS at all. Can you help by listing any airplane/run n gun scroll shooter games y out there for GBA abd NDS.

    Thanks in advance.

    NDS is about to get Contra 4 and o7 Commander. While 07 Commander basiclly is exactly Metal Slug rip off, It looks good.

    GBA has Metal Slug advance. Alien Hominid is a great choice.


    Thats all I can think up in my head.

    I've always thought the DS was the absolute perfect platform for a decent vertical shooter, like Ikaruga or something...

    So why isn't there any? grrr....

    The closest to Ikaruga would be Nanostray.

    For GBA: Steel Empire, Gradius Advance/Generation/Galaxies (Generation is the Japanese version, it was released later and has a few extra features)
    ... can't think of any more at the moment.

    There are also tons of those types of games for the SNES you can emulate using one of the SNES emulators for the GBA or DS. Acrobat Mission, Aero Fighters, Axelay, Bio Metal, Darius Twin, Hyper Zone, U.N. Squadron, to name a few.

    You took the words right out of my keyboard. [​IMG]

    Great game for someone who loves side-scrolling shooters.
