Warning Forever: Best freeware shooter ever. by Mischief Maker 02/26/2007, 10:32am PST
Or at least it's the best for my individual tastes.

This is the "Shadow of the Colossus" of freeware shooters. Like rRootage it's a vector-based shooter in which you fight nothing but bosses. However, it's the nature of the boss that makes all the difference in the world.

The boss consists of a core and wing segments with individual turrets. It starts off really small and easy with 8 basic turrets. As the levels pass it getts bigger and bigger with more varied and insane guns and beam cannons and missile launchers. Pretty soon it's taking up half the screen and boxing you in with beam fire as you desperately dodge gobs of bullets trying to denude it of components. Then it gets agressive and starts chasing you to the corners of the screen and unfolding into more deadly configurations. Plus the semi-random bosses sport ridiculous diablo-esque composite names like "dodeca-needled phoenix crazy."

To compensate for the chasing, your ship has 2 firing modes. Basic straight ahead, and a turret mode that angles and dilates the bullet stream depending on how you move.

True, Kenta Cho's shooters are much prettier and more artistic, but this game is just plain exciting. Hell, this game is even designed to integrate the music file of your choice in either .wav or .ogg format, just rename it bgm and dump it in the game folder.

Even if you're a MAME snob I highly recommend giving this game a DL. Note that normal mode is time-attack. Give "3 ships" or "Sudden Death" a try first.
