Classic top-down shooter with stat building and parts customization!
Multiple planets to see, weapons to collect, and big bosses to fight.
High scores and Medals available!

In the works since July 2010, the top-down shooter genre has been something I've always wanted to cover. Big thanks to Hyptosis and Kelwyshade for their art and music, otherwise I'd still be stuck with an unpolished engine. I think we ended up with a solid product, hope you enjoy!

"Baw baw, tyrian's better, baw baw, it's not new"

Baw, baw, listen to the bawbags. This is honestly a solid shmup with a really interesitng emphasis on not just bullet awareness but also awareness on the fact that your hitbox is the size of Mount Everest. While normally I would say its a bad thing, since most SHmups drown your screen in pain and awful, this is honestly well executed in that while your hit box being so large is a pain, it's also a challenge because the bullets take this into account. I like it, and it's beautiful looking, and production values are very high. Enemy layout is very well done. Keep it up.

It can have some improvements. Id look through the structure of some other classic shooters and see how they did it. One thing you could do is make the "leave area" option work.

By far one of the best Space Shooters on NG!

I saw that a lot of users had been giving you piss poor reviews lately, so I felt motivated to write something myself. I am a HUGE fan of old-school top down shooters like this and I just wanted to say THANK YOU for making such an enjoyable game for this genre! I love the amount of customization in it, the music and graphics are spot on, and the challenge is reasonable without being too easy or too hard. The only other game on Newgrounds that even comes close to this level of awesome is DN8! Please keep up the good work! I'd love to see more games in this genre by you!
