I like both. I think the main difference between vertical shooters and horizontal ones is that in the former, you need to fight your way through intricate landscapes while destroying/dodging dozens of enemies, whereas in the latter, you may focus all your attention on enemies as you generally cannot...

Re:

Sadly it doesn't come across like that so I've deleted it Darran I was merely responding to Stu's humorous arrogance with humorous arrogance. My post was not meant to harm Stu in any way - especially since I have liked his work for so long -, but upon reading the tone of his previous post, I honest...

Re:

1. Gradius was far from the first shooting game "based around" a powerup system. Powerups go back way before that, and debating which ones were "comprehensive" is a bit futile. Names. I want names. And please, no "1942", Galaga" or "Moon Cresta" in your list (see? That's where the word "comprehensi...

Funny you should play this: I am currently "competing" against a friend of mine on the very same game. So far, I could not do better than 85860 points (my Wolfmame 0.103 replay is here ); my mate, on the other hand, has just scored a whopping 115010 points, beating my previous "record" hands down. O...

Re:

I didn't advertise your site so you advertised ours - www.grospixels.com being of so little interest to you all as it is all in French -, but I do appreciate your gesture, Segamark.

Re:

I was setting the record straight officer. :lol: I honestly hope Stu will not be offended by those few words of mine; I was not trying to be rude or anythin...

As always, what a great issue. Tons of cool stuff to read; just keep up the good work. One big complaint from the Gradius fan that I am, though: the "definitive" Gradius is all but definitive - first, because by making the article a simple, descriptive list of all major Gradius titles, Stu overlooke...
