100 Invaders
Jph WacheskiShoot 'em up4.27 MBClick here to download

100 Invaders is an interesting take on the classic Space Invaders theme by jph, in which your ship is able to thrust forward when the up arrow key is held. The allowable travel distance depends on your current Pow level, which can be increased by collecting green pods.

These power-up pods can be created by shooting each orange pod three times, though grabbing them can be rather tricky because when your ship travels in one horizontal direction all pods in the vicinity will move towards the opposite angle.

Large invaders are only vulnerable if you hit them right in the middle. Hold the left control key to shoot, and use the left alternate key to distribute half of your current Pow level to the next ship.

If you can endure the epileptic-inducing effects then this is definitely one remake worth having in your collection.

3D Starstrike  
Urban InteractiveShoot 'em up24.4 MBClick here to download

Uncle's remake of 3D Starstrike is essentially a rail shooter first released on the Sinclair ZX Spectrum over two decades ago, which in turn was inspired by Star Wars arcade cabinets put out by Atari to cash in on the popularity of the franchise.

The first level involves shooting at enemy ships and the plasma bolts that they will fire at you, while the second requires some fancy dodging skills as you strive to avoid collision with turrets and towers attempting to gun you down. In stage three, you'll need to navigate around catwalks and destroy the two purple pipes at the end of the trench to enter the reactor. Blow up all six reactors pods in the final area to destroy the Battlestar and start all over again, albeit with a higher difficulty.

Ablation  
NenadShoot 'em up7.50 MBClick here to download

Ablation is basically a four color vertical shooter with an interesting concept. Touching a white bomb neutralizes all projectiles, while activating a black one destroys every object in range. Collect power-ups for a firepower upgrade. Hold the control, Z or space key to shoot, and use the function keys numbered 5 and 6 to switch window sizes. Press the P key to pause the game.

Black pixels do no damage, though contact with a white pixel will cause your ship to lose one power-up degree. Destroy an enemy's weak point for a special core bonus.

Absorb
Absorb Development TeamShoot 'em up29.2 MBClick here to download

Quite a number of heroes and their ships from classic arcade shmups make their appearances in Absorb. You're cast as the enemy, attempting to acquire the projectiles that they shoot out and return the favor in kind. Hold the F key to activate your shields while absorbing bullets and several other harmful objects. Press the D key to launch them back at your adversaries.

Both buttons act as the cancel and confirm buttons as well. The keyboard controls work fine but a joypad is recommended.

Ad Nauseam
cactusShoot 'em up1.59 MBClick here to download

Ad Nauseam is a vertical shooter by cactus which was originally made for the third SHMUP-DEV competition. The current version is in a playable state, with five different power-ups to collect and seven types of enemies to deal with.

Gameplay is far better than what the screenshots may suggest. Definitely worth a try.

cactusShoot 'em up1.61 MBClick here to download

Ad Nauseam 2 is an intense 2D shooter from the prolific Swedish developer cactus, and fans of Seizuredome or Burn the Trash will find something to like in this release. Press the Z key to shoot, and tap the X key to activate the shockwave effect. Hold both buttons to activate the alternate fire. Using either of these two specials will deplete your circular power gauge, shown discreetly in the background.

Collect four green pluses to upgrade your weapon by one level, but be sure to avoid red minuses which downgrade your ship's firepower. Use the F1 function key to switch between uncensored and safe modes. Press F2 to turn off motion blur, or F3 to disable screen shakes.

The game has three phases in total, and your fastest completion time is submitted online once you've beaten the final boss. Playing on the easiest difficulty setting doubles your time on the high score list.

ad2
KMCShoot 'em up11.2 MBClick here to download

ad2 is a minimalistic 3D arena shooter with RPG elements, though the game is too short with very little depth to sustain interest of players after completing a mission for the first time.

The map shows available paths and enemy encounters for a player to gather invasion points, which can then be used to evolve the ship in several ways. Hold the Z key to shoot, and press the X key to launch a bomb.

Adler Zone
battlegorgeShoot 'em up0.56 MBClick here to download

Adler Zone is a gorgeous 8-bit style shooter by battlegorge, though only one playable level is included in this early version. Hold the A key to shoot, and press the S key to activate the hyper field.

Upgrade your firepower by acquiring either fifty or a hundred green power-up containers. Collect blue crystals for bonus points.

AerialKeng

(external link)

AerialKeng is a short vertical shooter where players engage one large enemy ship after another as they strive to make it through each of the three stages included. Use the cursor keys to move, hold the Z key to shoot, and press the X key to activate the slow motion feature. Using this option drains your shields, which is automatically restored after a few seconds. Your ship will be destroyed if it takes a few hits during this window of vulnerability.

The game offers no continues, and has a short congratulatory message for an ending.
