Evoland 2 is part shmup, part platformer, part RPG, part puzzler...

After watching this debut trailer for Evoland 2: A Slight Case of Spacetime Continuum Disorder, I regret missing the first game. The basic concept of an adventure that evolves from 2D to 3D and spans multiple genres is the same, only now i...   read

This is unexpected. Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions is rolling out a free update across all platforms (PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC) on March 31, 2015 that's large enough to warrant a name change. Going forward, the game will be known as G...   read

A Quiver of Crows looks lovely, seeks Greenlight approval

Although I'm not a shmup aficionado by any stretch of the imagination, I do enjoy playing them from time to time. The ones that I tend to go for are typically on the unusual end of the spectrum. They either stand out due to their uniq...   read

Swedish game studio Might and Delight really knows how to make games that stand out visually. Its attractive-looking paper art style on the Shelter series is, in my mind, unmistakable. I can recognize the studio's work at a ...   read

Mighty Tactical Shooter is a rad looking turn-based shmup

Usually when one thinks about shmups, precision motor skill and quick reaction are what come to mind. Mighty Tactical Shooter turns that completely on its head. Though precision movement and shot placement is still required, that precision...   read

Cuphead could be this year's big run-and-gun game

That's my hope, anyway. Cuphead is one of those games I feel bad for not noticing sooner. Sporting a remarkable sense of style and animation, this looks to represent the best of the run-and-gun genre, with developer Studio MDHR citing infl...   read

Resogun: the PS4 exclusive shmup from Super Stardust dev

Housemarque made a name for itself with the addictive, colorful Super Stardust HD, one of the PS3's early downloadable and indie exclusives. Housemarque followed with neat games like Dead Nation and the excellent Outland, but it's now going...   read

After Burner Climax is jetting onto iOS

After Burner is one of those games that tickles the nostalgia bone and doesn't stop. I remember burning away hours locked in aerial combat with After Burner II on my Famicom, although I never did manage to reach the end. And when I played ...   read

Sine Mora screenshots continue to look great

Sine Mora's newly found exclusivity to Xbox Live Arcade disappointed some, but as others pointed out, at least the game has a publisher now. That is very much a good thing. Speaking of good things, that spider robot letting out bullets in a...   read


Nano Assault: Infections are sexy now

If I had known that fighting viruses was as fun and gorgeous as Nano Assault makes it seem, I'd almost certainly have studied medicine at university instead of drinking. Thankfully, you don't need a medical degree and a massive amount of de...   read


Yummy: New XBLA Radiant Silvergun screenshots

I'm sure everyone has that one game they sold and will always regret selling. Radiant Silvergun for the Sega Saturn is that game for me. What an incredible game. What an expensive game! I'd buy it again, but I suck so much at it that I can'...   read


Soldner X-2 arriving on PS3 May 25th

I go for a good shoot-em-up now and again. I'm awful. Laughably bad, even. Blind monkeys are probably better shmup players than I am. Yet I always get that itch to embarrass myself -- to myself, mind, as I'd never carry on like this in publ...   read
