UmlautgamesAction/Arcade2.98 MBClick here to download

Thrustburst is basically a remake of an old arcade game which involves navigating treacherous caverns by activating your thrusters using the W, A, D or cursor keys. Energy can be increased by lightly grazing the cavern walls and ceilings, preferably with the tail end of your ship. Activate the Energy Shield by pressing the shift or tab key, and press space or the left control key to fire the Defender Cannon. Use the F1 function key or hold the left alternate and enter key to toggle fullscreen.

To destroy the asteroid's core, simply approach it with maximum energy. The Energy Shield and Defender Cannon must not be used during this final approach. The regular difficulty setting is only fifty kilometers long, but there are two additional gameplay modes to unlock by completing the game. Thrustburst also supports both analog and wired Xbox 360 controllers.

Mogura 2 is an excellent horizontal shooter created by Krobon Station, featuring two characters with different abilities and weapons. Both gets a standard shield which can be activated using the X key. Hold the Z key to shoot, and tap the C key to initiate a special attack. Press the left control key to change the way your weapon operates.

A tutorial can be accessed from the main menu by selecting the third option. The second offers a difficulty setting. After picking a character, you can choose to either start from the first level or continue from the last stage attempted.

Installation can be a bit of a hassle but the effort is worth it. Rename the largest executable and cca file to the same name, then repeat for the smallest file. For example mogura2.exe, mogura2.cca, config.exe and config.cca.

Pasta Master

Jinxtengu, Jacob Waldemar BuczynskiShoot 'em up6.53 MBClick here to download

Pasta Master is a freeware arena shooter created by Jacob Waldemar Buczynski, where players assume control of an amateur magician who goes by the name of Mr. Mingo. Besides performing tricks and magic, he is also the owner of a well-known restaurant which just happens to be chosen by demons as the perfect location for a gateway connecting earth and the netherworld. Being slightly aggravated by the whole situation, you put on your magic hat and jump right into the portal on a mission to seal this unholy passage and send the demons back to where they rightfully belong.

Use the cursor keys to move, and hold the left mouse button to shoot. Firing your lasers will drain energy quickly, shown as a numerical counter at the bottom right of the screen. Simply let go of the shoot button to replenish ammunition automatically, or grab a bottle of ketchup to increase it drastically. Shields can also be acquired to allow temporary invulnerability against one hit.

A secret game can be found by left clicking on the exposed part of the ceiling.

Karateka Mania  
Krobon StationAction/Arcade13.9 MBClick here to download

Karatekamania is a music rhythm game created by the developers of Mogura 2, where players are rated based on the timing and accuracy of their key presses while a song is being played in the background. Inspired by Nintendo's Rhythm Tengoku, this fan made version features slightly updated graphics, customizable settings, and even comes with an editor to facilitate the sharing of user creations.

Use the enter key, left or right mouse button to control the actions of the martial arts practitioner. Tap the space key to punch at a thrown object. Hold the same button to assume a stance, then press the up arrow key to execute a roundhouse kick. Mouse and gamepad controls are also supported.

The current build (1st style 1.7a) contains only four default levels and two songs, although new stages created by other contributors can be downloaded from Krobon Station's message board. Simply click on a link to any zip file, unzip it into the music folder and the song should be available to play from the song selection menu.

Mondo Medicals  
cactusAction/Arcade2.96 MBClick here to download

Mondo Medicals could be described as an illogical puzzle game played from a first person view, with plenty of bizarre elements. Most of the levels are designed to confuse you, and the solutions aren't always that easy to figure out. Move around with the arrow keys and press Z to interact with stuff. There are in game instructions, but they might not be that easy to interpret. There are eight levels total.

Cho Ren Sha 68K  
Famibe No YosshinShoot 'em up0.89 MBClick here to download

Another excellent freeware shmup from Japan, Cho Ren Sha 68K will definitely please fans of the genre with it's frantic old school gameplay.

Everything you'd expect to see in a shooter is there. The high score table actually uses classic arcade shmup names!

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.

Shoot First  
Beau Blyth, TeknogamesAction/Arcade3.60 MBClick here to download

Shoot First is an action game with roguelike elements, featuring procedurally generated levels, an automap system, two-player co-op mode, an online high score table, and even AI-controlled companions to help you out during heated gunfights with denizens of the dungeon. Your character can only carry one weapon at a time, and three other equipment that you acquire during your adventure. Weapons are upgraded automatically after a prolonged period of use, but the bonuses don't carry over when you switch to another gun.

Like any roguelike, your objective here is to descend the staircase that leads to the next level. Sometimes the staircase is blocked by a locked door, so you must first find the yellow key hidden somewhere in the dungeon before proceeding to the exit.

Red potions can be quaffed to restore a tiny bit of health, and rescuing damsels in distress also have the same effect on your hero. There's no button to drop an item in your inventory, but you can swap them out when the inventory slots are full by picking up an object on the ground.

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.
