Vertical Monitor Games that aren't SHMUPS
« on: December 05, 2017, 10:13:33 pm »
I have a bunch of games on my vertical monitor machine and most all of them are from the All Killer lists for SHMUPS and Classics. It's an impressive mix of about 150 games. I was looking to see if there was anything I missed... and wondering what games that didn't make the All Killer list cuts may be worth checking out. Any suggestions would be wicked cool. Thanks

Thanks Malenko. One or two of those I don't have, but there are about a dozen I added already that werent on the lists. Juno First is a killer game as is Bump N Jump. Gonna check out Crush Roller and Qix. Thanks.

there are a TON of variations of Qix, unfortunately most of them are for adults (like Gal's Panic)
