    This might be fun, if a coder and artist have a bit of free time and want to team up.

    Hrm, I’ve always preferred the vertical scrollers tbh. Gotta love the Nipon Shooters as the Japanese like to call them. PC Zone did a feature on them ages ago and gave some links to some great ones, Rally Raid being one of the best if I remember correctly. Then theres the fab Giga Wing and Ikaruga for the DC / Arcade…in fact…

    *goes off to play them*

    mmmh… vertical or horizontal. that’s always been a bit of a quandary, eh?
    My personal favourite was usually vertical, but I must admit some of the horizontals I played were absolutely brilliant. I mean, Metal Slug for a start.
    1942 was cool, as well as Xenon … aaaaah, the good old days :roll:

    Indeedy, but then again with Metal Slug you didnt have to worry about the vertical part of the screen bar the odd bit of hopping around. I duno, I just always seemed better at Vertical shooters, hence I prefer them, MS aside! :D
