Sky Swimmer's Heaven

October 21, 2005 8:36 AM | Tim W.

Sky Swimmer's Heaven is the new SHMUP by Solid Image, developer of Nomltest FS. In collaboration with Sound Impulse, they have crafted another great 3D shooter that showcases three different ships this time around.

The EAT system makes a comeback, where enemy bullets that stay within your bluish square field will disappear after a certain period of time. The weapon system from Nomltest FS is here, together with the lock-on targeting missiles that was made popular by Ray Storm and Ray Crisis.

The game is still in development, but rest assured that this would be another 'solid' hit when it is completed. In the meantime the test version is available to download from the site.

Twin Seeds

October 21, 2005 8:12 AM | Tim W.

Twin Seeds is a shooter from Japan that plays a lot like one of the Shanghai Alice series. Graphics may not be as polished, but the gameplay is.

Bullet scratching system is the main attraction here. By staying close to enemy bullets for a few seconds, all harmful projectiles in your field can be turned into bonuses. Collect these to upgrade your weapon system.

There's an option to adjust the difficulty level, making the game accessible for beginners as well as shmup veterans.

To Hell with Johnny is an action game that has you jumping off platform after platform in your quest to save Brianne. Timing is important here as Johnny will fall all the way down if he jumps off a platform too soon. Too slow and the debris will get him.

Pretty good effort for a game made in 72 hours. Download it from this page.

Zoo Keeper

October 17, 2005 9:09 AM | Tim W.

In Zoo Keeper, you basically swap tiles around to make matches of three or more. Remove a certain number of tiles as stated on the top right of the screen to proceed to the next level.

You have to sit through an ad before being allowed to play. Minor hassle since the game itself is worth the wait.

Will win you over with it's simplicity and cute graphics. Definitely a keeper!
