Gunroar is another great shooter from Kenta Cho. This is a 360-degree shooter like Geometry Wars and Robotron. You can control the game with the mouse and keyboard, but Gunroar also works great with a 360 USB controller. Experiment and see which control scheme works best for you.

Above: Gunroar is like a vertically-scrolling version of Geometry Wars and its minimalist design looks great

Above: Moving and aiming independently works great in this 360-degree gunboat shoot ‘em up

Like Gunroar, Nanozoa is a 360-degree shooter. The action isn’t as intense as some of the other shoot ‘em ups we’ve listed so far, but Nanozoa makes up for that in spades because it looks so cool. You’ll pilot your tiny ship through a person’s body like the movie Inner Space. Inside, you’ll find all kinds of parasites and microbes to kill, which makes Nanozoa sort of like the shoot ‘em up equivalent of Trauma Center.

Above: Instead of choosing levels, you choose which part of the body you’ll clean up

Above: Nanozoa doesn’t have the most intense action, but it’s stylish blank and white look helps it stand out from other, more generic shoot ‘em ups

    Really? Most of these games are quite small. Tumiki fighters is only 5 MB. That's too bad...

    Thank you for using my video (the Warning Forever one)! I'm heartened to know that it was useful! (Though, you could have let me know, I guess... *grumble*)
