This is what modern shmups should look like.

We are running the Game Development World Championship and would like to see you participate. It's good for your visibility and won't cost you a penny.

You can check it out at www.thegdwc.com .

Good luck with the development!

This looks seriously barebones. There is nothing different about this game compared to the thousands of other titles in this genre.

Looks like a fun shooter, I'd definitely give it a try if the price was right. My only advice to the developer is to polish it a bit (although generally speaking it looks OK) and highlight the collectable stuff better, it tends to get lost in the clutter.

nice explosion effects.. downing of spacecraft and whatnot.. how about some specular highlights on the ship models?

looks fun but I was just wondering if the mouse controls your ship

Unless someone finds these assets somewhere on the web (and I couldn't) I'll vote you up.

looks promising but I need more information on features/etc before I can vote.
