My favorite Shmups on Steam
The Tale of Alltynex (Alltynex Second is the best but all three games are excellent.)
Jamestown (One of the very first shmups on Steam and still one of the best. Finally updated too.)
Astro Tripper (Another early Steam shmup. Very unique mechanics. Criminally underrated.)
Raiden IV (Has a stupid bug that prevents offline play. GOG's version might be the one to get.)
Armed Seven (Astro Port has several good shmups on Steam now. This is my favorite of theirs.)
Deathsmiles (Wonderful gothic setting and artwork. Cave's games are legendary for good reason.)
Jets 'n' Guns Gold (The most popular Euroshmup on Steam. A bit too chaotic for me but still great.)
Revolver360 (Damned difficult 2.5D bullet hell that looks and sounds fantastic.)
Rheum (Uniquely grotesque downward-scrolling bullet hell with an end goal at the human sphincter.)
Danmaku Unlimited 2 and 3 (Awesome high-energy doujin shmups with deep score systems.)

Thanks toxicradians, that's a very nice thing to say. It's also very generous to offer a gift card, but I didn't do much to earn that so I wouldn't feel comfortable accepting it. However, I'd like to have you on my friends list anyway just because I like to have fans of older PC games close by, if that's alright with you.

Unfortunately I've tried adding you as a friend on Steam but Steam is giving me an error message for some reason. Could you add me from your side?

Hey - so basically I have been playing old DOS games to remind me of my childhood. I used to play on an old banged up PC from oldentimes but since moving countries, I have been playing on newer PCs. I have spent years. YEARS. Trying to get the sound on Hocus Pocus to be what I remember. And it has infuriated me when people say 'oh I remember it always being this way' and 'oh does it really matter'. I came across your post from 2018 and you have made my year. The sounds are perfect. You are a miracle worker. I wanted to send you a £15 steam gift card to show my appreciation for you taking the time and effort to make that post but Steam doesn't allow this for people who aren't friends. If you are cool with this, add me, I will send the gift and then feel free to unfriend me. You made my f*ing year and judging by your other posts, you are a legend going around and helping people.

@ThreeSon Alrighty, thanks a lot! I know that the Piko games generally have their ROMs available, but since this one only listed Piko as a developer and not publisher I wasn't sure. It's annoying for the average person buying an interesting game just to have it run poorly by default, but I appreciate the fact that they leave the ROM available to people to use on other emulators if they wish to.

I'll leave the reply here in hopes you will see it. Both Iridion and Iridion 2 are emulated, poorly, on Steam. They are both using the Mednafen emulator. And the ROM files do appear to be accessible in each game's Steam directory. I successfully loaded them into RetroArch with the mGBA core.

Seeing that you own Iridion 3D on Steam, I have two questions regarding the game, if you can answer them. Is the game an emulation or a port, and if it's an emulation, is the .gba ROM of the game accessible within the game's Steam files? I'm compiling a list of Steam games that are emulated and I can't seem to find a definitive answer regarding the Iridion games.
