Jets'n'Guns Gold
Just because of the huge variety of weapons, upgrades, ships, enemies, levels and the metal soundtrack

It´s free and called D.O.V.E! Mainly liked it cause of the possibility to change the weapon to backshooting :D


Haha, I did some of the more mediocre pixel art in this game back in the day. Nice to be reminded.
There is a sequel called DoveZ by the way, picked up a retail copy in the discount bin years ago. That one does have a consistent art style and is also worth checking out.

I totally love In The Hunt. IREM just did some amazing lookin games that were just spectacular to play. The switch from space to underwater combat was also a very cool variation.

Has anyone here played Revolver 360 Re:Actor? I found this on Steam a while back. It's cheap and a crap ton of fun. The revolving concept is very interesting.
