This is a nice little browser-based shmup for you all to try that I stumbled across with my goo friend Goo. It’s not a very long game but should keep you all interested for a few hours as it’s quite addictive once you start. It’s a Jap shmup so you get a choose of ships to use and then once you’ve chosen its time to do battle with the many bad guys trying to destroy you but fear not because there are lots of power ups for you to collect to increase your fire power to destroy the on coming enemy and at times the screen is full so reflex’s are a must. Visuals are very nice and cartoon looking which is another of my favorite style. Controls are Cursor Keys to move and Space Bar to Fire. It won’t keep hard-core fans happy but for the casual gamer its worth a try.

As they aren’t many new shmups out there at the minute I thought for today I would bring you an old arcade classic that can now be played in your browser that classic for me is OutZone. OutZone isn’t your normal shooter in that you control a guy on the ground instead of a space ship but it’s still a good shooter and when is was first released it was a pretty awesome game and still plays well today. You get loads of different enemies coming at you as was the case in a good arcade shooter but you have more than enough fire power to deal with anything that is thrown at you and there are also plenty of power ups for you to collect. Graphics and sound are still quite good-by todays standards although in its day they were some of the best in this kind of game. Controls are Cursor keys to move X Key is your fire button and C Key is your special weapon. Not a hard game this but still worth a blast today.
