SHMUP suggestions


Posted: 10 Apr, 2019 13:55
Ive recently been getting in to SHMUP games, such as Darius Gaiden and stuff like that.

Problem is, I dont know a lot of them.

Can you recommend some good ones for me to check out? Especially ones with achievements :)

BTW. I love Darius Gaiden (especially the soundtrack), and Blazing Star is probably my favourite STG of all time (a lot is reaaaly close to it, but I finished it so many times I need to say that)

Thank you very much, you are a star :-) I will have a play through them this week :-)

The Darius Gaiden soundtrack is amazing. I actually stumbled upon the game by accident but I absolutely love it.

I have good memories of U.N. Squadron as a kid. Rarely played it, but used to watch the bigger kids play it all the time in the arcades.

Discovered Aero Fighters 2 recently and really like it. Managed to get some of the cheevos on it, but definitely need a bit more practice haha.

Attempted Bio Metal the other day too. The less said about my skills on that, the better ;)
