Apogee's shmup Stargunner is free on GOG.com

There's also a sale on the Square Enix library

I had forgotten that Apogee Software made a sidescrolling shoot-'em-up -- one with '90s-rific pre-rendered 3D graphics, no less. That's more to do with my terrible memory and general cluelessness when it comes to the genre than a statement about the quality of Stargunner.

The game has been freeware for quite a few years, at this point, but there's something about adding these titles to your library on a familiar digital distribution service that makes them seem somehow better. GOG.com is hosting Stargunner, should you want to give it a try.

While the site has your attention, there's also a decent sale on Square Enix games. Look for 60 percent off Startopia, Thief, Soul Reaver, and freakin' Total Overdose, to name a few.

 

What are you about to get yourself into? Here's a "longplay" by YouTube user cubex55:

 

Disclosure-bot: Just in case the editor neglected to mention it, we have zero control when deals start and end. Deals can sometimes be gone within minutes (please don't shoot the messenger). Trying deal links even hours after this article's time stamp may lead to self-punching, so maybe bookmark our video game deals if you're on the hunt. Also, it goes without saying, but some shopping links do directly support the author. If you've spotted any inaccuracy please let us know asap.
