(external link)

Feather Raid is an excellent shooter featuring a power-up system much like the one employed by Konami's Gradius series. There are no lives but your character is able to take several hits, indicated by the HP gauge shown at the bottom of the screen. Your HP can be increased by completing levels and gaining experience points.

Hold down the Z key to shoot and press the X key to activate a power-up. Tap the left shift to launch the cyclone attack, although it requires a recharge after each use.

Flowers of Error
Pekko Koskinen, Jonathan MakShoot 'em up5.30 MBClick here to download

Flowers of Error is a new arena shooter by Jonathan Mak and Pekko Koskinen, where just about every single moving object in the game can be drag around with the mouse cursor. Much like OMEGA's Every Extend, bombs are used to destroy other enemies and generating letters to acquire as a result. Bombs automatically detonate a few seconds after being dragged and placed in a new location.

Use the W, A, S and D keys to move, or press the P key to pause the game at any time. Toggle between windowed and full screen mode with the F key, and tap the M key to turn the music on or off.

Flyout is a vertical shooter by Foppy, creator of the equally superb action game Gridfire. Guide your ship in a never-ending flight upwards, while collecting the occasional health packs hidden in precariously-placed boulders and blowing up tiny little sprites bent on halting your noble journey to space.

Maximum power-up level is five, as indicated by the lightning symbol on the top right. Increase this by collecting upgrades from a guy standing next to a Dutch flag. Touching the wall does not damage your ship, but watch out for other hazards.

Hold the Z key to shoot, or press the M key to toggle music.

Force Majeure

Force Majeure is a horizontal scrolling shooter by Swedish indie-developers Monokey, originally made for the Shmup-Dev Autofire 2007 Competition. A lot of inspiration for this project has been absorbed from games like Progear or In the Hunt. Both keyboard and gamepad movement are supported.

Choose from two lethal and sexy pilots, each one with their own fighter. Bravo's fighter is faster but does not do as much damage as Choke's one, who tends to be a bit slower. Bravo's subweapon is a rocket, fired from the bottom of the ship and then traveling forward, while Choke has a megaton bomb which is simply dropped on enemies. Also take a look at the monitor under the pilots. It will show you were the weak spot on their plane is. This is the spot were you don't want any enemy bullets.

The demo version of Force Majeure only consists of one stage for you to beat. The slow moving green carrier ships carry a power up. Power ups marked P will level up the cannons, while power ups marked A enables the side arm for your fighter. A second player can join any time by pressing the player 2 start button, but do configure the keys or buttons first.

In order to score high in this game you can't just blindly roaming around and shooting enemies. You will need to earn medal multiplier points to reach the true score levels. The medal multiplier is located in the lower corner of the screen. At first you won't see anything but when you start to get multiplier points you will notice how a medal with appear and if you're really good it will evolve.

By shooting down an adversary, any fresh bullets fired by the enemy will dissolve and add multiplayer points to the player. However the fastest way is to stay really close to an enemy and shoot the finishing bullet. If you are successful you will hear a metal sound and multiplier points will be added. Watch out though, you don't wanna get too close when the enemy starts shooting and crashing into you.

When you are hit by an enemy or an enemy bullet you will lose all your multiplier points and your medal multiplier level will be reset to zero again. Extends are given at fifty thousand points and then at every seventy-five thousand points.

Adam BielinskiShoot 'em up29.4 MBClick here to download

Forces is an original genre game made by an 11th grader named Adam Bielinski. It is considered to be one of the best examples of Turing developed games, rivaling Coutsos's Evasive Maneuvers.

You make sparkles on the screen using the mouse, and then click to shoot the objects you drew. Calculation of damage is based on the location of both your circle and the drawn objects. The closer they are to you, the faster they fly out.

Fractal Fighter  
cactusShoot 'em up1.62 MBClick here to download

Fractal Fighter is a freeware vertical shooter by cactus which features a limited palette of only two colors. Each boss consists of different weapon parts that the player has to destroy in sequence, randomly created using a tree generation code. A commendable effort especially when considering that the author spent less than a day to create the entire game from ground up.

Fraxy is an arena shooter featuring a collection of boss fights, with an editor included to facilitate user creation as well. Use the cursor keys to operate your ship, hold the left mouse button to shoot or press the right mouse button for a temporary speed boost. The left shift key or mouse wheel can be used to swap weapons.

Energy is deducted whenever a shot is fired or the speed boost is activated. Without energy, your ship will explode. Up to five weapon slots can be fitted with your choice of arsenal using the config.exe file, with an explanation for each found in an english text manual in the same folder.

An undocumented item is the Over Soll Power boost, which can be acquired by staying in the core of a power-up item for a couple of seconds. Much like Cho Ren Sha 68k, though this upgrade is a temporary one and useful only when the ship is at full strength.

A specially designed Try mode is available for players to experience preset challenges, while the Free Play mode offers a random run or unlimited practice for experimentation.
