*2 games in the Arcade list, 'Pilot Kids' and 'Zero Gunner', will require a Sega Model 2 emulator for them to work.  These two games are made by Psikyo...quality SHMUPS.

**The MSX list still needs a bit of work, there are a few 3D/rail shooters that need to be edited out.  A future update will probably have less games in the list.

SHMUPS.thumb.png.dae62702fb4f482148a7920ac5d422bf.pngWhat these playlists have:

2D and 2.5D horizontal and vertical SHMUPS
Some classic fixed screen SHMUPS (Space Invaders, Galaga, Asteroids, etc.)
mostly No Clones  (These lists were handpicked. Lots of 'Same game, different name' games were filtered out)
No Run 'N Gun style games (Contra, Metal Slug, Turrican, etc.), but some hybrid games did make it on here.
No 3D Shooters (Afterburner, Galaxy Force II, Space Harrier, etc.)
