Flying Shark for me but I have a few favourites. Out zone is great but a bit tricky. Truxton another classic

Snow Bros gets my vote, although I do like Out Zone a lot too

It was to be either Knuckle Bash or Truxton II but I'll go for the latter as I did spend quite a bit on that in the arcades, to me it was the superior shoot em up at the time.

I only ever owned Hellfire as a Kid so I've voted for it.

Haven't played a lot of these, but of those, Hellfire was my fave. Great Megadrive version too

I've gone for Snow Bros. but I do think they made some excellent shmups.

Same. As much as they are known for their shooters I have always loved Snow Bros.

I was a big fan of Flying Shark on the Spectrum though and Zero Wing is an excellent game on the Mega Drive with the best intro ever! "all your base are belong to us!" :lol:
