Free PC Shmups by ABA

by Space Paranoids Sun Dec 10, 2006 2:47 am

Recently, I was looking for some cool free games and came across a bunch of freeware shmups made by an ABA Games. They're pretty cool, and all free of charge. I haven't played that many real shmups, and I was wondering what discerning fans would think of them. You can find links to different versions on this Wikipedia site, one of them (Noiz2sa) has been ported to Dreamcast.

My personal favorites are Torus Trooper, a ridiculously fast-scrolling shooter said to be like Tempest for Atari, and TUMIKI Fighters, a horizontal shmup where you are a toy plane that can pick up the broken parts of your enemies to make a giant mass of firepower. Check them out and see what you think, they're free, after all.
