Starfire Retaliation

I’ve waited a while now for this vertical browser  shooter and now it’s finally been released for me to get my hands on. This is a game that you will either love or hate because the enemies seem to take a very long time to destroy and the weapons you use don’t seem to be that powerful and it offers nothing new in this kind of game  however after playing this for a few hours I’ve grown to like it because after you clear the first level and have maxed out you weapons with power ups those same enemies no longer take and age to destroy and things tend to get a bit easier and you move through the levels quicker despite the screen becoming increasingly full of enemies. Graphics and sound are nice with some pretty lood explosions and some hung bosses at the end of each level and the levels are quite long in this also. Controls are Cursor keys to move and Space Bar to fire. Were this a download game I don’t think many would play it long after downloading but as it’s a browser game I thinks it’s suited to that and is well worth a look by any shmup fan.

Toho Invaders

Toho Invaders is as it sounds a remake of Space Invaders but its in Touhou style gone are the aliens only to be replaced by female figures in glass helmets and you also get boss at the end of each level before you can move and it maybe a small boss but it fires a hell of a lot of bullets at you. Graphics are nice and cute and detailed and make this a cute em up really. Thers not a lot I can say really other than it’s space invaders gone cute. Controls are Cursor Keys to move and Space Bar to fire. This is a Space Invaders fan only game true shmup fans may fight it boring.

Abrogator

Abrogator is a little vertical shooter that feels very much like a tech demo at the minute. You aim is to get a higher score as you can whilst a mass of enemy ships stream towards you intent on destroying you and beleave me the will to help you out you only get one weapon so quick reflexes are a must because the screen is always full of  enemy ships. Graphics are pretty good as is the sound and it plays nice and smooth. Controls are Cursor keys to move and Z key to fire. If you have a few minutes to spare this is well worth a download.

Pumpkin Patch

I know Halloween was a while ago so this game is a little late but it’s a nice little arena shooter so I thought it deserved another showing. Not a lot to this game you just have to stop the ghosts stealing your pumpkins and collect the treats which are left after you have shot a ghost and thats pretty much all there is to it. There are a few power ups along the way to help but they only last for a short while. Graphics are nice pixel graphics so it has that retro feel to it. Choose which controls you want to use from the main menu. If you like getting high scores give this a try.

Robot And Ufo

Robot And Ufo is a cool timed shooter which means you have  two  minutes to get the highest score you can by blasting away wave after wave of Ufo’s until your time runs out you also have to make sure they don’t take your robots which you are protecting because once their gone it’s game over. There are no power ups just button bashing fun in this game. Graphics are nice and retro so fans of computer games from long ago will love this. Controls are Cursor keys to move and Z key to fire.

Invaders Possibly From Mars

I’ve been waiting for a while now for this game to be completed and at last it has. It a Space Invaders meets Futurama game why the two I’m not sure but what we have is a pretty good Space Invaders game with some nice shiny graphics and interesting game play. Unlike other games of this kind you get power ups that are flown in throughout the game but they only last a short while so make them count when you get you also get videos that pop up from time to time with characters from the cartoon series Futurama which is another nice little twist. Controls are via your Mouse and you can use a Joy stick if you like just select it from the options menu. So if you like getting high scores give this a go.
