Crimzon Clover  
YotsubaneShoot 'em up139 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Crimzon Clover is truly a wet dream for shoot 'em up fans. Though labeled as a trial version, this vertical 2D shooter sports a generous three full levels to play, jaw-dropping graphics, a limited shop section for unlockables, and the obligatory yet awe-inspiring boss fights.

In addition to your primary weapon, you can hold down the second shot button to target enemy ships, then release the key to fire homing beams at them. Collecting stars increases your special gauge, and when you press the C key it will either activate the bomb or your ship's break mode, depending on how much of the bar has been filled.

Note that the continues that you purchase from the shop can only be used once.

Arachnos  
BootansoftShoot 'em up7.27 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Arachnos is an effort by BootanSoft that is reminiscent of arcade shmups from the early 80's. I could not get this to work full screen, but changing to a lower desktop resolution helps. Controls are shown under the configuration menu. Set BLT scale to double for a larger game display window.

The graphics may appear to be bland but does improve after the second level. Several weapons most commonly found in Konami's classic shooters make their appearance here, such as ripple lasers and options to name but two. Your ship does not explode immediately when hit, allowing options to be recovered after the loss of a life.

End level bosses have several attack patterns, guaranteed to test your bullet dodging skills. The asteroids in stage two can actually be used as a temporary shield during the boss battle, assuming that you don't crash into any of them.

TUMIKI Fighters  
Kenta Cho, ABA GamesShoot 'em up5.03 MBClick here to download

Tumiki Fighters is a shooter by Kenta Cho that is quite different compared to his other efforts. Just about all the objects in the game are made out of colorful blocks, including your own fighter plane.

Enemy ships that have been destroyed will break into pieces. These parts can be collected by simply touching them, and they will act as extensions to your own fighter plane. Your attack strength increases with each part you collect, although they will fall apart if an enemy bullet hits it.

You can retract the enemy ship parts by holding down the X key, although no further parts can be picked up until you release the button.

Bokorin  
IkikiAction/Arcade0.45 MBClick here to download

Bokorin is an addictive little action game made by Ikiki using MMF, in which players have to take out as many of his opponents as possible in under one minute. A control configuration option is included in the menu. Press the shift key to start a game. Use the same button to execute a jump. Tap the control key to attack, and hold the Z key to activate the slow motion mode.

Akuchizoku  
cactusShoot 'em up8.53 MBClick here to download

Akuchizoku is a horizontal shooter created by cactus, featuring three playable levels, two difficulty settings, three different pilots and two gameplay modes. The difficulty setting adjusts the number of bosses and enemies you would have to face in battle.

Hold the Z key to shoot, and press the X key to launch a missile. Tap the C key to activate your special weapon, though this move is limited to one use per ship.

Only one pilot is available in story mode, but any level and pilot can be selected in free play mode.

Unblade Senki  
uepomPlatformer17.9 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Unblade (Record of War) is a 2D platformer in which you play as a frog carrying an indestructible umbrella, on a quest to find a kidnapped princess and rescue her from the clutches of an evil minion. Along the way you can collect power-up items that could be used to destroy floors or walls, replenish health, bombs that help you jump higher, and even the occasional invincibility spell or two to help you through a tricky section in a level.

There are seven stages to play through in total. You may have to rename the executable files to get the game working on PCs that do not have native Japanese text support installed.

Pen Pen Xmas Olympics  
Army of TrollsAction/Arcade0.89 MBClick here to download

Pen Pen Xmas Olympics is a skiing game with seventeen events consisting of slaloms, downhill races and ski jumps. In the first two categories, players must attempt to reach the end of each track under the qualifying time to progress or lose a credit if they fail.

Use the cursor keys to control the protagonist's speed or direction of travel, and press the space key to jump over obstacles.

Dot Fighters  
TakaseAction/Arcade285 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Takase's Dot Fighters is quite a departure from his previous work. Detailed 2D sprites prominently featured in Arm Joe have now been replaced with characters made out of huge pixels. Their faces are usually made out of several colored squares, with eyes and mouths left out of their portraits to accomodate the new style.

There are plenty of moves to choose from, with devastating ones limited to the amount of Dot Power that you have accumulated during each fight. Only four fighters are available in the latest version, though Quest Mode does include additional boss encounters and bonus rounds.

Only two attack buttons are ever used, but there's plenty of moves to learn and executing them doesn't require excellent memory skills. Press the A key to punch and tap the S key to kick. The escape key can be used to pause the game. Press alt-Enter to play in full screen mode.

Combos are usually initiated by tapping one of the action buttons repeatedly. Additional moves such as air combos, reversals, throws, safe landings and rolls are all here. Recommended for fans of the genre, and well worth the 285MB download.

Ginormo Sword  
BabarageoAction/ArcadeBrowserClick here to play
(external link)

Possibly Babarageo's best known work, Ginormo Sword is a Zelda-like game which involves striking down enemies with your sword for treasure. The gold you've acquired can then be used to upgrade the length and width of your sword, or to acquire new blades with special bonuses.

Mars TD Plus  
TaroStrategyBrowserClick here to play
(external link)

Mars TD is an excellent tower defense game created by Taro, developer of the unfairly difficult platformer Super Ear Man Bros. The objective here is to build turrets around the map and protect your base from the incoming alien invasion, because every enemy that reaches the base will steal some gold from your resources. You will lose if you run out of gold at the end of a wave, although players are allowed to continue up to three times from the level they last attempted.

Three options are available to you whenever you click on a friendly unit on the map. Selecting the first choice upgrades the turret by one level, up to a maximum of five. The cost of upgrading a unit depends on how much experience points it requires before the level counter is automatically increased by one.

The second option is used to switch the location of two turrets. No cost is incurred if this action is taken in-between waves, but the amount of gold required to switch units during battles will be indicated inside the selection box. Turrets and walls can be sold by choosing the third button.

You're definitely missing out on something special if you let the lack of English text for menus and descriptions prevent you from playing one of the best tower defense games out there.
