S.H.M.U.P. is a game that feels like a shoot-’em-up without feeling like a game I’ve played before, and I think that’s an impressive accomplishment.

Once I dabbled with the shop facilities and advanced further, the game rapidly lit up with vibrant arrays of enemy hordes, endless bullets, and enough missiles to make you go nuts.
Mana Pool
Without this I probably would have quit after a few plays, but the ability to keep making progress kept my interest – definitely a smart touch.

sega42596 : There were online leaderboards at one point. I think the download version on my website has it, but the code (or at least the server info) to post it has been taken out of the source version
