i'm a shmuppy puppy!!!

here are some games i've spent some time in! this isn't everything that i play - just ones i'm particularly into. did my best to make this connect to a google sheet, but i'm not learning an API for that. hit me up if you've got a recommendation, i think my tastes are pretty easy to clock.

my favorite. often overwhelming. canon enby character playable. it loves to throw jargon at you. i think i'm in love.

focusing on level memorization before i work on scoring

it is not a good beginner shmup, but it's usually what i recommend folks look at if they're curious about the genre.

i dream of 1cc'ing it but i think it'll continue to elude me. someday.

dorky little game. i bought it after discovering your bullets spelled out B-A-R-K-! what else could you ask for? really decent beginner shmup.

i have been close enough to 1cc'ing it that it makes me groan.

meant to only dabble with it but it is so, so much fun. spaceship goes slash slash. kind of a gender.

got to the stage 3 boss on my second try at the game. finally able to get there consistently, just need some more time with the boss.
