Radian
JabberwockShoot 'em up1.36 MBClick here to download

In Radian, players take control of a stationary object located in the middle of a dark room. Take aim at enemies by rotating this object using the left and right cursor keys, then fire a shot with either the Z or X keys. Hold both buttons for a charged attack.

Press the space key to collect debris for powerups. Shots can be blocked by using your shields, although the coverage area is limited to the direction chosen by the player before the start of a game.

Rainbow Wars
Luke SchneiderShoot 'em up2.15 MBClick here to download

Rainbow Wars is a pretty good arena shooter by Luke Schneider of Volition Inc., responsible for delivering the Descent series among other projects. A dual analog gamepad works well here, although the mouse and keyboard combination isn't too shabby either.

Use the left mouse button to warp, and hold the right mouse button to charge your special attack. A nice addition is the option to continue playing from any stage previously attempted, but the easy difficulty only allows access to the first ten waves. Click on design ideas to begin downloading.

Ray-Hound
HikwareShoot 'em up0.55 MBClick here to download

The latest release from Hizoka.T.Ohkubo, RAY-HOUND is an action game which requires no shooting from the player's part. Trapped in a room with enemies consisting of turrets, you can retaliate by clicking on the left mouse button to muster a shield and send their shots back at them. The other method is to move your ship towards the lasers rapidly to initiate a boost and repel the beams of destruction.

In the options menu, it is possible to adjust and increase the chances of boosting with quick mouse movements by lowering the figure. Press F11 or use the ALT and enter key combination to play in full screen mode.

A timer is always counting down, but you can increase it by destroying all enemies to complete the level. The gameplay system is pretty offbeat, since it can be rather hard to direct shots unless the player is adept at slinging projectiles.

Rayging Blue 2
(demo)
FREAMSShoot 'em up25.6 MBClick here to download
(external link)

Rayging Blue 2 is a work in progress from FREAMS, featuring two short levels in the latest version.

The gameplay system is rather different compared to other shooters. Your ship is protected by a shield which replenishes it's own energy over time. The sub-weapon can be activated by pressing the X key, extending the ship's wings and increasing it's firepower.

Press the directional keys quickly using a left-right-left or right-left-right combination for a temporary rapid fire power-up. Your alpha-strike beam charges automatically when no shots are fired. A decent effort if not for it's length.

Rect Winder ASCII is a new shooter by D.K. of Alpha Secret Base, in which players are placed in a vertical corridor with only four positions on the left side of the screen to move into.

Reincarnation
Y-NRGShoot 'em up3.51 MBClick here to download

Reincarnation is a decent vertical shooter that has simple enemy designs and an uncomplicated gameplay system. The player can choose from several weapon configurations before starting a game. Press the Z key to shot, and hold the same button to activate your special beam attack.

The screen is wider than your average shmup, though that does mean more space to navigate in and dodge enemy projectiles. Weapons and shields charge up automatically, so players do not need to worry about collectibles or bonuses. Definitely a good entry point for beginners.
