    Shooter!?

    The closest thing you can get on the DS is Nanostray

    Top-down shooter, or vertical-scroll shooter, to be more precise. Very rare on the DS though. Nanostray is your best bet. On a quick search, also found this.

    Shmups!

    I had that game and another one (Overkill or something like that). Played them all the time.

    If there is an Amiga emulator on the DS (not sure if there is, I'll have to check) you should play Banshee that's quite a good game

    Since you specified Raptor, i'd like to say that Tyrian is similar in play, but much better. The DS version is REALLY good, too. I'd HIGHLY recommend that one for you. Also i LOVE using all CAPS to emphasize my points. So you SHOULD listen to ME.

    Tyrian is better than most commercial games on the DS and far better than nanostray2 IMO (which isnt a bad game at all, Tyrian is just so much better), defiantly check it out if you like SHMUPS

    Man, I miss old school PC gaming in the early nineties

    Blake Stone, Duke Nukem 1+2, Commander Keen, Sierra's Quest Games, LucasArt's SCUMM games, Raptor, Epic Pinball...
